Inspired by the military, the Tough Mudder obstacle course is a world wide event. The courses are set up about the globe attracting thousands of adventurers with a thirst to prove themselves. They consist of 20 odd obstacles through which the competitors must fight. Such obstacles include electric wires, burning hay and long claustrophobia inducing mud filled tunnels to name just three.
On having had to swim through an under water ice filled doorway, WO2 Leigh Ashton (34) commented, "it took brain freeze to a whole new level!"
Having already raised over 2 million pounds for the charity 'Help for Heroes' and with an emphasis on team work, it is unsurprising that the competition attracts a lot of military competitors.
Already, there is talk amongst soldiers throughout the Regiment about entering the next locally held Tough Mudder competition in September.
