They did it! After weeks of training, yesterday 12 Forward Rollers headed to Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire to take on the muddiest Tough Mudder course in the UK!
With 10 miles and over 20 obstacles to complete, this Tough Mudder course was definitely not for the faint hearted but our ‘Dirty Dozen’ did us proud.
What was the hardest part of the Tough Mudder course?
“Physically it was the monkey bars, but mentally it was the ice bath!” Hannah
“The ice bath hands down!” Nathan
“I’d say the hardest part was actually trying to run on the boggy mud and not break an ankle!” Sophie
“The electric wires weren’t fun” Josh
Most memorable quote?
“JOSH, WHERE ARE YOU? I CAN’T SEE ANYTHING!” Nathan
“It’s muddier than I thought it would be…” Hannah
“It’s like roller city up in here” Matt, referring to how easily you could roll your ankles in the mud
“I’ve got mud in my teeth!!” Becky
“If anything, I’m too tough for this...” Dan, circa mile 7
How did you feel when you reached the finish line?
“Relieved, proud and sore” Rachel W
“I felt proud of everyone, slightly emotional, hangry and in need of a beer! But I was also thinking about what challenge we can do next…” Sophie
