COPE Galway to Tackle the Tough Mudder Challenge again this year!
COPE Galway supporters are joining forces to take part in one of the world’s toughest obstacle events ‘Tough Mudder’. Supporters of the charity will head to Loughcrew Adventure Centre on Saturday the 8th July to take part in this world-renowned event and to raise much-needed funds for their efforts.
The team will have to complete the challenging course, which includes obstacles such as ‘Arctic Enema,’ where participants plunge into icy water, ‘Berlin Walls’, a series of 10 foot high walls to conquer and the infamous ‘Everest’ a steep quarter pipe that requires courage and teamwork to summit. The 10 plus mile course culminates with ‘Electroshock Therapy,’ where participants run through a field of wires carrying up to 10,000 volts of electricity.
Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10 plus mile obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder is all about camaraderie. It is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience world-class obstacles they won’t find anywhere else. Tough Mudder is challenging for even the fittest of competitors as some of the obstacles are virtually impossible to complete alone, but the course is achievable for people of all backgrounds, if they work together.
Don’t think you could face the 10 miles of mud, fear not, there is a 5 mile option, with 13 obstacles to cover it’s all the mud over half the distance and perfect for those who want to challenge themselves in 2017 whilst enjoying some exhilarating and muddy fun with friends and family.
Why not join our COPE Galway team in 2017, you can be guaranteed to get covered in mud and have one of the best fun, fitness days out in what can only be described as a big muddy playground for adults!
