Tough Mudder is described as “probably the toughest event on the planet” and after 5hrs, 20km slog of thick MUD, 25 British Special Forces Obstacles and EIGHT electric shocks, we’re now officially ‘TOUGH MUDDERS!’ We managed to get over 3m Berlin walls, through underground mud tunnels, electric shocks (TWO DIFFERENT OBSTACLES) a fire pit & the refreshing ice bath plus burnt 2,120 calories with the help of other awesome unknown Mudders!!
We attempted all tasks and only just didn’t complete 2 being monkey bars (slipped off) and (‘Mt Everest’ half pipe, touched but just missed gripping the hands to get pulled up).
Our training paid off as we were definitely fit enough but it was certainly a tough course and we went at our own pace. We were tested physically and conquered fears while having a good laugh and fun at the same time! Half way through I said I wonder if I could back up next year? After pulling up pretty okay the next day that’s possibly the new goal, camp overnight and do TWO Tough Mudders Back to Back!
The event was held at Glenworth Valley in Sydney on Sunday 23rd September 2012 – the venue and organisation was excellent!
Blue September is a fun way of delivering a serious message about ‘facing up to cancer in men’.
Blue is for men and we lose too many of them to prostate, lung, skin, bowel and testicular cancer.
Did you know?
1 in 2 Australian men will have been diagnosed with cancer at some stage of their life by age 85.
Each year, more than 22,000 Australian men die of cancer.Even though less than half of the Australian population are men, more men than women are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Some of the most common cancers causing death in men are: lung cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, melanoma and testicular cancer. Unfortunately the list doesn’t stop there. There are many other cancers that commonly affect men, have a high mortality rate and which are often preventable through lifestyle choices. These include cancers of the kidney,
liver, head and neck, oesophagus and bladder.
Help raise funds for cancer research and GET BLUE this September!

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 20 km-long obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses and half a million inspiring participants, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.
You cannot complete a Tough Mudder course alone.
To get through mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity you’ll need teammates to pick you up when your spirits dip. To get over 3 m walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are team players who make sure no one gets left behind….!!!
