Race For Life: Pretty Muddy 2014

I completed Pretty Muddy today! woooooooo 

It was fun! The three of us were all really nervous before it started, we got running and that just fell away. There were nine obstacles in total, I dont have pics for all of them unfortunately, but I can sure as hell tell you about them! (if Ican remember them all!)

Obstacle 1: Hurdles

Not traditional hurdles, huge inflated pink rolls which we had to clamber over!

Obstacle 2: Pink Tyre run

This was exactly what it sounds like, some tyres laid on the floor, which you have to run through. like you would imagine for army training. except the tyres had been painted pink.

Obstacle 3: Tunnels

Some large tubes laid down which we had to crawl through! decidedly less muddy than we thought…

Obstacle 4: Army Crawl nets

blue tarp on the floor, red net above, crawl under in an army crawl. Not going to lie, I didnt army crawl. I crawled on my forearms! Still not muddy…

Obstacle 5: Mud Pools

Finally, some mud! We had to climb over a hurdle, (not inflated this time – just some scaffolding covered in fabric signs!) and land in a paddling pool full of muddy water!

Obstacle 6: Over and Under (spider web)

Rope strung across at different heights and angles, so that you have to work your way through it by going under and over. Felt kind of like a spy avoiding laserbeams. Except I could touch them and move them out of the way.

Obstacle 7: The A Frame

This old classic. Cargo net up one side, go over the top, and corgo net down the other side. These things always mess with my head a bit, and I end up feeling very unsteady on the top. we were stuck queing for this one for a bit as a poor lady was quite distressed with trying to get over it. she did it eventually, and we all cheered and clapped.

Obstacle 8: Mud. Just Mud.

We had to climb into a big inflated pool with rope strung across the top, and go under the rope while being splashed with muddy water. At this point our supporters were all around, and had mentioned to the stewards that we loved mud. As a result, we were splashed quite a lot…

Obstacle 9: Slip and Slide

The last obstacle. An inflated slide. We climbed up the cargo net on one side, swung our legs over and slid down holding hands into some mud. wooooo

Then we had a short sprint to the finish!

Total Time: 66 Minutes

Approx. Time (with stops at obstacles taken out): 56 Minutes

We did SO well. I definitely help the other two up a bit, buuut, I think they were OK with it…

My JustGiving page is still open, so If you do get the chance, please do try to give a little something towards the fight against cancer.

Hurdles! I'm second in on the right...
