  • Jeep UK announced as a Tough Mudder partner for 2016 season
  • Jeep-owned challenge ‘Mud Mile’ returns

Jeep UK will partner the gruelling race series, Tough Mudder for a third year in a row, the #4x4 brand has just announced.

The famed ‘Jeep Fest Mud Mile’ will return to the 12-mile first race on 30 April in West London, where competitors will tackle one of the toughest obstacle courses in the world. #jeep Fest features a live DJ performing from a converted Renegade to energise contestants progressing through the mud sodden obstacle.

As part of the sponsorship programme, #jeep will support all 12 Tough Mudder events in the UK this year, providing a fleet of #jeep Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee vehicles to race organisers. Additionally, a new offering, the #jeep Fest Service Station, will provide war paints to increase team spirit pre-race, and offer a place to relax afterwards.

As Mudders finish the race, the #jeep Fest Service Station will be giving away car seat covers to keep vehicle interiors clean, while #jeep owners can also benefit from VIP parking onsite.

“It’s great to be working with Tough Mudder for a third year,” says Damien Dally, head of brand, #jeep UK. “It is a unique  series and shares Jeep’s love of adventure, living life to the full and mud!

“We have great admiration for all of the participants as they test their own limit – something which we strive to do at #jeep.  Opening the #jeep Fest Service Station will provide Mudders with a place they can prepare pre-race and relax afterwards. We will also be able to show them the latest range of vehicles available from #jeep.”

The first of 12 Tough Mudder races takes place this weekend (30 April) and is #jeep Fest Service Station’s opening #event.  Find out more about Jeep’s involvement with Tough Mudder here:http://www.jeep.co.uk/life/jeep-friends/tough-mudder/.
