Everyone who has been following Mike in his run up to taking on the Tough Mudder challenge, will be pleased to know that he completed the course in an outstanding 2 hours and 39 minutes, covering 12 miles and 22 obstacles. Mike commented "It was a great motivation to know that I had such brilliant support from friends and family and apart from being electrocuted twice it wasn't as bad as I thought." Well... there's modesty for you!

About The Tough Mudder

This event is a hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test all round strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. This really is the toughest half marathon that was ever devised and was a real test of Mike's mental and physical endurance abilities. More information on the Tough Mudder can be found here.

Thanks to everyone for your kind support.
