“The day started out at 8.30am, 7 of us in a cold field in Horsham – a perfect way to start a Saturday!
Our start time was 10am so we enjoyed the pre-event warm up which involved jumping up and down like crazy and screaming in each other’s faces!!
The event then started….
10 miles, consisting of running and walking (Bobbie and I) through the forest with obstacles thrown in about every 1/2 mile. Most of the obstacles consisted of mud and cold water! One was an iced cold water bath you slid down a chute to get into (as you do).
It took us just over 4 hours to complete the course – freezing cold, soaking wet, covered in mud! After the event, Ahmed (one of the team who took part) named us ‘The Magnificent Seven’.
