Always up for a challenge, team EMS are braving 10 miles of mud and gruelling obstacles – we’re taking on Tough Mudder.
This endurance event has been designed to test both the mental and physical strength of participants and our team of 20 have until May to prepare. With 500,000 litres of mud to contend with and over 20 world-class obstacles, including the infamous ‘Arctic Enema’, we are in for a cold, muddy challenge.
Tough Mudder is intended to emphasise teamwork and camaraderie by providing the opportunity to work as a team and accomplish something that takes hard work and determination.
The obstacles are designed to play on common human fears, such as fire, water, electricity and heights. Just some of the obstacles which the EMS team will face include crawling through watery ground with electric wires dangling over them, climbing over 60ft of slick, rotating barriers and being plunged into a dumpster full of 10 tons of ice.
This challenge is due to take place in Grantham on the 12th of May – wish us luck and look out for plenty of, likely amusing, photos to follow!
