the famous 'Tough Guy' competition and against all
odds we manged to survive with just a few scrapes,
cuts, bruises, cramped muscles, twisted ankles, nettle
stings, infections... "Tetanus anyone?"
Tough Guy competition is sort of like an 8 mile long
army assault course. There are a wide variety of obstacles
to deal with which you'll need to climb, swim, jump,
dodge, slide, and run through. If you don't like mud,
barbwire, stinging nettles, narrow tunnels, hights,
or swamps, then you might struggle with this very
good natured event.
one point I fell off this high rope section, bounced
off a hay bale then landed face down in the blackist,
stinky-ist swamp I'd ever seen. I wouldn't have minded
so much but my mouth was wide open at the time..."

We like the
Tough Guy competition a lot and we'll definitely be
doing it again!
