Are you a Tough Mudder?

June 19th, 2014

Will Dean, 33, is the founder and boss of Tough Mudder, the world’s biggest organiser of extreme obstacle course races. Last year, half a million people around the world paid up to £120 each to take part in one of the company’s events.

In exchange, participants are then challenged to run, jump, swim, crawl and haul themselves around a 10 to 12 mile military-style obstacle course. In their way are up to 25 obstacles which include submerging themselves in icy water, slither through mud, dodge live electric cables and barbed wire, and push their weary bodies over numerous walls.

While this sounds physically painful to most of us, New-York-based Tough Mudder is hugely popular and its events can sell out months in advance. Events this year in the Midlands and Yorkshire have already sold out but the London dates for 2015 have been released so why not set you, your family or work mates a real challenge, and sign up before it sells out! ( An amazing £600,000 has already been raised for Help for Heroes through the UK events so you’d be doing your bit for a worthwhile cause too!
