On the 1st of August this year the Mersey Divers Team took part in the Yorkshire Classic Tough Mudder to raise funds for the club and also to donate to the RNLI.
Tough Mudder Classic is a 10-mile challenge of mud-soaked mayhem. Loaded with 25 of the world’s craziest obstacles. With no competitive element and no timing, it’s just you, your teammates and muddy strangers working together to conquer the course and earn the world-famous orange headband.
It was hard going at times, there was lots of mud and lots of getting wet, some of the obstacles really pushed us, but I don’t think anyone stopped laughing throughout the whole day. Except maybe on the Artic Enema! A drop down a drainpipe into a skip full of water and ice cubes with a crawl under a barrier in the middle. Not sure anyone really enjoyed that one but we all worked as a team and no one got left behind……
We’re still adding up the donations and sponsorship but it looks like we will just break £800. Which is a great result for the club and once it’s all collected we will be donating 25% of whatever we get to the RNLI. Watch this space for the final update.
The team on the finish line.
