Are you tough enough?

The Munga, the toughest race on earth, wants to know if you are up for a challenge? A newly launched challenge with Endomondo – running from 01 to 31 July 2014 – sees the Munga offering one lucky rider an entry into the race and consequently, the chance to win a share of $1 million prize money.

“All riders need to do is ride as many kilometres as they can during the challenge period and they could win a free team entry into The Munga – simple!” says Alex Harris, renowned explorer and race director for The Munga. “In just 8 days we already have over 54 000 riders who have entered our Endomondo ‘Are your Tough enough?’ Challenge with over 283,958 kilometres having been ridden to date.”

Munga Prize

Every team that finishes the race within the 5-day cutoff period goes into a draw for a $100 000 prize.

How it works:
Riders need to sign up for the challenge with Endomondo at the following link:

Each training session should be recorded via the app – where the top rider with the most kilometres clocked at midnight CET on the 31st of July 2014 will be rewarded with a free team entry (2 riders) into The Munga. The winner can choose anyone to race with and the team will be responsible for getting to the start of the race, Bloemfontein South Africa on the 3rd of December, and back home from the finish line, Stellenbosch Cape Town. However, the race entry covers all meals and race accommodations during the 5-day race.

There will also be a lucky draw where 5 winners will each receive a limited edition Munga jacket. The more kilometres the riders have logged at midnight (CET) on the 31st of July, the better odds they’ll have. Riders will get one ticket entered into the draw for every 20km logged.

To ensure fair play, The Munga and Endomondo will check the workouts of the winners. If any false workouts are identified, a new draw will be conducted to find another winner. The winners will be notified by email and will be announced on the Endomondo website  in early August.
