Thread: Tough mudder/h4h

    Smile Tough mudder/h4h

    Just back from Dalkeith Country Estate where I was down supporting my wife and her pals taking part in TOUGH MUDDER SCOTLAND 2013.Please google TOUGH MUDDER to see more about it but basically its a 12 mile special forces designed assault course which is not competititive but is designed for teamwork and determination to get you through it for personal acheivement and also to raise money for charity.Directly linked with HELP FOR HEROES it is raising substantial funds and I have to take my hat of to my wife for doing this as before she turned 40 she wanted to acheive something so she took up this challenge and to raise money for H4H.Her and her team completed the course and have the cuts bruises and aches to prove it -not bad for women in there late 30,s/early 40,s who havent done any running since they were at school but took on the challenge and have trained hard for 8 months to acheive their goal,they havent totalled up their donations but my wife personally has raised at least £650 to go directly to H4H and with at least 11000 people doing this challenge a bumper sum should be boosting H4H shortly!Seeing the great team spirits throughout the day anyone looking for a challenge next year should consider it -hell i,m even thinking about it myself and on the selfish side she will be handy now for dragging beasts of the hill for me

    I would take my hat off to them if I was wearing one. For a good cause too.
    I can apreaciate some of what they went through, as at the ripe old age of 52, I got to go on a 3 week outward bound course in the stunning Marlborough sounds last year. I am not very fit to say the least, but I loved every cold, wet, mud soaked minute of it (apart from missing my wife).
    Mine was not for charity unfortunately, but for self fullfillment.

    Again, well done to your good lady and her buddies for taking part. A very worthy cause indeed.
    I have just watched some very funny footage taken on a mobile phone of some of the competitors getting electrocuted at one of the obstacles!!
    My mate went through supporting his son who was taking part.
    As an aside, I sponsored my mates son and I was looking at going through to watch it as it is a good day out.
    I thought though at £20 a head to spectate and £10 to park, I thought that was a bit excessive, even allowing for it being a good cause but that's my opinion.

    aye the electric shock sections were a helluva laugh if you were spectating and the funniest bit was a poor guy with no top on who my wifes pal crawled in front of causing him to stop and get zapped constantly we were all peeing ourself watching this and we got it on camera!It was £20 on the day but if you pre registered it was£10 but it was a great laugh if you were spectating apart from the woman in front of me at the monkey bars over the water who pushed in to get photos with her expensive camera but slipped and rolled into the pool and I dont think that camera was waterproof!!!!Very proud of wife and her team and it really is a feelgood event with a great atmosphere and some seriously hardy people
