We’ve got a challenge for you, your mates and maybe even your colleagues, think you could make it happen?
We’re looking to get some more runners to take part in what is being billed as “probably the toughest event on the planet®”
Here’s the official blurb:
“Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, determination, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running Tough Mudder, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days.
FACT #1 – Marathons are boring. And the only thing more boring than doing a marathon is watching a marathon. Road-running may give you a healthy set of lungs, but will leave you with as much upper body strength as Keira Knightley. At Tough Mudder, we want to see what you’re made of, not just your ability to run in a straight line, on your own, for hours on end, getting bored out of your mind. Our obstacle courses are designed by the Special Forces to test you in every way and are meant only for truly exceptional all-around people, not for people who have enough time and money to train their knees to run 26 miles.
FACT #2 – Mudders do not take themselves too seriously.Triathlons, marathons, and other mud runs are more stressful than fun. Not Tough Mudder. At Tough Mudder, we meet you at the finish line with a pint and a live band. It’s pretty hard to take yourself seriously when you’re covered in mud and have just finished an obstacle called ‘Just The Tip’, so please don’t show up at a Tough Mudder without a sense of humor. Just check out the bizarre team costumes in our event photos section of our website to get a feel for the spirit of Tough Mudder.
FACT #3 – You cannot complete a Tough Mudder course alone.To get through mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity you’ll need teammates to pick you up when morale is low. To get over 12 foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are team players who make sure no one gets left behind. To that end, all Mudders are expected to uphold our ideals and exhibit teamwork and camaraderie both on the course and off it.”
The North West event is on Saturday 17th March and is within the grounds of the Cholmondeley Estate, Cheshire – 45 minutes drive from Liverpool.
