Also, they say it's the toughest assault course in the world, ...but surely not. However I would love CTCRM Lympstone to open it's gates for a similar event, and get all those civvies going through the Tarzan, maybe with a mudrun thrown in!
Did it in 2008-boiling hot day-really good fun, got burnt, cut and electrocuted and would love to do it again, watch out for Tough Mudder comps as there seems to be a few about. Some of ours have done the winter TOUGH Guy - respect to them. Just a bit too far for me to do every year plus the cost has rocketed.
Never done the summer one as it doesn't appeal but done the winter one a couple of times - great fun, utterly knackering and also you can end up with the most incredible cramps. Fair number of serving blokes (and birds) go round so have a go and enjoy yourself.
Did the winter one a few years ago. Painfully cold but great fun. You need to run hard enough to generate sufficient heat to avoid hyperthermia. The risk is that if you get your timing wrong you end up queuing for obstacles, stationary, soaking wet in freezing water. Brrr.
Did the summer one last year. Much prefer the longer course as opposed to the shorter but frozen winter one. Apart for the ridiculous entry fee, would recommend it to anyone. The only downside was the voltage in the hanging wires. Outrageous! I was thinking it was going to be similar to a cattle fence.....
I helped marshall it last year, at one of the swimming areas. At registration there were loads of forces people coming through, the address on their forms gave them away. Tough Guy are also starting a triathlon, 10 K off road ride, 400 metre lake obstacle swim, and then 10 k tough guy.
