So there we were, trudging towards the start line like Aragorn, Leagolas and co. heading to battle in Middle Earth, or something equally badass. (I’d love to know who’s meant to be which! – Ed.)

We’d awoken in the early hours of Sunday morning to make our way down to Boughton House in the scenic Northamptonshire countryside, and were desperately trying to psyche ourselves up for the 12 mile mud challenge. Being a Mudder Veteran, I made it my responsibility to try and motivate everyone: being in the right mind set is critical. Pumped up music and the growing atmosphere added to the event, and by 09:00 we were ready to go.
I’ll let the pictures do the talking. In short, we’ve grown a bond that can’t be broken, and everyone survived what was a great team building experience. In fact, a few of us have already signed up for next year!
(Huge thanks to Designer Director Nic Edginton for being our photographer for the day.)
