Tough Mudder is the latest trend in extreme sports, where participants race up to 20km over a series of military-style obstacles involving mud, fire, icy water and high voltage electricity!
The tough mudder event originated in the US in 2010, created by Will Dean as a student project when he was at Harvard Business School, and it has now spread around the world.
Most of the participant compete as part of a team, which some find necessary to help climb over 3m high walls and through mud tunnels, and maybe for that motivational boost when you are considering giving up.
