the cold is the only thing to beat really ye, Ye could meet up , its going to be really busy thoughj that morning, ofr me there will be others alone like myself , its good to have somebody to push you around the course when you need it, will prob just meet a random at the start..lol..cant wait though, cant believe its finally here....
Camlo , well done to you, I hope you all have a great day,
Iam keeping my fingers crossed for a mild day but the water will sill be freezing...
Scared dot com. I have my knee pads and latex swim hat. 21 miles done in the snow off road over 2 days at the weekend and another six last night. Fingers crossed i make it round. The best of luck everyone.
I am also doing this Sunday as a Wetneck. Done a few swim/runs in the sea as prep, hoping it will stand me in good stead for the w/end. Wish i'd have seen this earlier & done more work on my upper body strength but hoping to finish it.
Getting fairly nervous myself now, pretty sure the endurance will be fine, can run 6 miles and hoping the adrenaline will carry me the last 3. Strengths not an isuue. I think just the cold is going to be unreal.
Is anyone else doing it on their own as i am and would be quite nice to have someone to go round with.
Good luck all!
ye Oliver, I'm doing it on my own as my wife is a spectator , can do togethre if you like I will be starting in the wetnecks as its my first 1 . we going down on the saturday morning to the site then going out to watch the footy in the day, staying over the night so will be there early doors sunday morning. inbox me or get me on facebook if you like, my profile pic is , Vincent Kompany with the premier league cup, cheers
bought my pass when signed up so I got a place somewhere think its blue car park, if it rains though the air temp wont be to cold then, just hacve to deal witht the wind when you are wet........am going down tomorrow morning to have a look around, cant wait , will be fun
justed checked the weather on 3 different sites, they all say sunny with patchy cloud saturday and sunday, witha high of 6 degrees ,
congratulations to everybody taking part, hope you all finished safe and well, I got round in 3 hours 50 mins but will get official tag time in about 10 days......water wasnt too cold but everywhere was really muddy, still had a great time, going back next year.
well done, you did a great job, I just thought is was me next to you when you fell off the ropes, I said to you I will pull the ropes down but there was too much tension in them then you fell off, biscuits and tea was very welcoming, we are all winners for just even attempting it .....well done, what was your time??
lol, its a small world isnt it, out of all the competitors we were next to each other on the ropes...what are the chances of that, lol nice to meet you though for about 10 secs, I seen a few getting took off the course shivering quite bad, mainly was young lads quite slim builds, I hope you both enjoyed it though, its best if your not feeling 100% to put himself through more torture, are you going next year ?? I think I will but get somebody to do it with me, I am doing tough mudder in may.
this is the link to get your official time and finishing place..
think the winner done it in 1:27 so you could be verging on winning it then, I was in queing all the way round, thinking about nettle warrior and also tough mudder in may.
ye I think unless you do iron man then any obstacle course will be easy afetr tough guy!! lol, , ye its hard to say how much time could be cut off with no queing but you sound pretty fit , I found some of the runnign hard as it was slippy and some of the tracks were on a slant and was impossible to run on as just kept sliding down the edge and possible ankle breaker....very enjoyable though, with the water, the double stretch of icy water was the worst I didnt find the rest of the water that bad really, maybe was the adrenaline carrying me through, Tough mudder looks a bit camp compared to tough guy but still would like to do it,
Had an absolute mare, first half of the race i was doing ok in a team of 9, slow at times because one of two wasn't runners but then after the long 300 metres walk thru the ice cold water (can't remember what it was called) the mud took one of my trainers without me knowing, then i lost my sock and started to get seriously worried. My foot was in a shocking state but i wasn't gonna quit, lost 7 of the team but didn't care, had to bail out of the barbed wire obstacle because of the foot and hypothermia setting in,lost my other trainer near the end but adreline helped me finish the last bit. Completed it in 4 hours 30 which at the time was shocking but after thinking of what i went through i became chuffed. I said never again but i'll be back.
came in 123rd. Did start in front squad though! what a brilliant day! as i got half way round killing fields i could here the sirens! quite haunting!
Big shout to everyone who finished and to those who didnt SEE YOU NEXT YEAR
The sound of some guy screaming in pain in the tunnels will stay with me for a long time!!! Think he had serious cramp.
The torture chamber was the worst with the electric shocks which were powerful evrybody was screaming..lol.. green pete---I felt sorry for those who lost footwear as it kind of ruins the experience to a degree , as when on the sloping hill run up down , up down which seemed to go on for a eternity, I seen a few in just bare feet, but credit to them and yourself for continueing, it doesnt matter what time you got , at least you completed the course as thats the main objective! it is addictive, didnt think I would want to do the same course again but now I cant wait for next year....haha, congrats to everybody who took part, anything after that will be a doddle!!!
My girlfriend saw a man cramp up completely on the slide just before the end. A spectator jumped over and helped him out. What a kind act.
Just one of the many reasons why im doing this again next year
that was the single most difficult thing ive ever done in my life related to sport. I have never been so cold or so muddy - or so focussed. Truly amazing, agonising, mind bending, gut wrenching. Designed to break you. Would love to do a summer one. They say the water was minus 10, it felt like it as the shards of ice slammed into your shins. When i got home i blew my nose and mud came out.
Not for sissys.
