After last years good times at the commando challenge, this year I decided to step up and lead a rag tag bunch of renegade solders of fortune through the famous mud, tunnels and lakes (and back). Team fridge monkeys go go go! As you can see from the photo everyone regretted it instantly! 😉 but after we got covered head to toe in mud the regrets disappeared. It’s not often in adult life that you totally let go and mud wrestle and get completely covered head to toe in mud. Another thing that really works in the team element, in fact teams only so you get great camaraderie between teams to clean running towards the mud bath and muddied running staggering back.
I definitely recommend the 10k marine challenge over the standard marine challenge as you’ll be nice and hot when you get to the assault course and the muddy cold water is actually quite refreshing [at first].
Best of all it’s for a good cause! Team “fridge monkeys” managed to raise £280 for the Devonshire Air Ambulance and British Legion. Thanks to friends and family who donated and the team for the blood, sweat and tears. More photos here
If anyone reading this is thinking of doing it, I’d recommend it to all and fitness wise I’d say in my *expert opinion if you’re ok running a flat 10K you’ll be fine to run the marine commando challenge.
See you next year?
*expert – I’ve done it twice, so use the word expert loosely.
