I've been umming and ahhing over whether I want to take part in this event for about a year now so decided to volunteer before I took the plunge. I also wanted to pick up some tips for the Men's Health Survival of the Fittest in September!
After walking to the site surrounded by soon to be Tough Mudders (and a few wimps complaining about the rain) I found my way to the volunteer tent. I picked up my free t-shirt, bag of goodies and a cup of tea then waited to get going. After throwing away our British reserve and several loud tough mudder chants, it was time to go.
We were all placed on registration to begin with. It might not sound too exciting but when you're signing in a bunch of very excited mudders, some in very interesting fancy dress, it's great fun!
Once registration was over we got moved to the finish chute. This was by far my favourite part of the day. I was given the job of crowning all those who completed the course with their orange headbands, was really good to see how much of a state everyone was when they crossed the line!
It was such a great and very muddy experience, I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. They have several more events in the UK this year, what have you got to lose?
