What we made of Probably the Toughest event on the Planet
Saturday the 7th of September saw Bob, Richard and Martin complete the Yorkshire Tough Mudder.
Billed as the toughest UK Tough Mudder ever, the 12.5 mile course wound it’s way up and down the beautiful Yorkshire moors broken up by numerous obstacles designed to test stamina, strength and mental grit. In addition to the intended obstacles, there were a few unpleasant surprises during the first half of the event.
Obstacles include climbing, being immersed in icey water, electrocuted and plenty of other opportunities to get drenched and covered in mud.
After 24 hours of heavy rain the previous day, the course was fairly slippery. We were glad of an early start, the course started with a steady climb which got us warmed up quickly.
