At the start of this year I signed up to an event called Tough Mudder. Kind of like a cross-country half-marathon with loads of nasty obstacles thrown in to make it even more fun. Part of my training involves running and that; and part of it involves drinking tasty craft beers. So I can pick a top-notch carry out for the evening after, you understand.
Anyhow, I wrote this article on Tough Mudder for The Herald and they went and gone and published it.
Here’s the promo video for last year’s event, held in July at Drumlanrig Castle:
This year it’s in Dalkieth in August, which makes it even harder by my reckoning.
On completion you get a hip orange headband and a well earned beer. Last year it was cans of Black Sheep Ale. This year … well, that’s the question everyone’s asking.
Hope to have an answer real soon.
