On a drizzly and overcast morning in Skipton, a motley crew of Architects and Technicians put themselves through what’s understood to be the toughest endurance event in the country: the ‘Tough Mudder’.
There was certainly a lot of the stuff (mud) along with many other leg trembling obstacles ranging from ’the Arctic Enema’ which entailed being plunged head first into an ice bath at the start of the course, to crawling through closely confined tunnels neck deep in, yes you guessed it, mud.
Not known for their sympathy, the organisers erected electrically charged swinging cables at the finish. Despite everything that was thrown at them, the whole team succeeded in finishing the course and so far have managed to raise an impressive £1,435 for our nominated charity, MacMillan. We extend a big thank you to everyone who sponsored the foolhardy team.
