The North School staff take on and survive Tough Mudder17/05/17
On Saturday 6th May 2017 staff from The North School wanted to prove to their students that they too can put themselves out of their comfort zone, just as the exam season approaches, to show that with a little self belief they can also achieve to take part in the Tough Mudder event.
Tough Mudder is a hardcore 12 mile-long obstacle course designed by the Special Forces to test a person’s all round strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Participants fight their way through mud, fire, ice water and 10,000 volts of electricity. With over 1,000,000 participants worldwide, Tough Mudder has become a global phenomenon and the ultimate adventure challenge series in the world.
In addition to surviving the course, the team raised £2,360 for local charities, which included The Stroke Association, in memory of our colleague Lynn Eales who sadly passed away last year.
