Throughout the course of the year select members of the Tilt team have been battling the elements in an attempt to build up the stamina required to face the 'Tough Mudder' challenge.
Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Putting Camaraderie over finisher rankings this event allows participants to experience world class obstacles. Well this is what the events site said, but to be perfectly honest with you, we all just fancied the chance to get really really muddy! Whats not to like?
The course took a little over 3 hours, with some great new obstacles introduced by the Tough Mudder team. Our favorites were King of the Swingers and Mud Mile, with the latter seeing our very own Stig Coldham fall head first into waist deep mud and emerge covered in more mud that Arnold Schwarzenegger in the end scene from Predator. Our very own ‘ultimate frisbee’ warrior Miles Tincknell, pranced round the course with the speed, agility and grace of a gazelle, leaving Stig and Jon (10 years his senior) to pontificate on the joys of youth.
See you in 2016 Tough Mudder. Anyone up for a challenge?
