Already home to a successful half marathon, Oshkosh will play host to a race of a different sort this fall.

Tough Mudder has reached an agreement with the Experimental Aircraft Association for the Wisconsin race to be held on the AirVenture grounds Sept. 7 and 8.

Tough Mudder races are a 10-12 mile obstacle course that originated with British Special Forces as a way to test strength, stamina and other skills. Races are held throughout the United States and the world each year and draw thousands of visitors.

Earlier this week, Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Wendy Hielsberg said the Tough Mudder race has the potential to draw upwards of 70,000 people, including participants, organizers, teams and spectators, to Oshkosh for the two-day event.

Tough Mudder holds one event in Wisconsin each year. Last year the competition was held in Cascade.
