The race takes place at Drumlanrig Castle, Scotland on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June. It involves completing a 12-mile circuit of “lung-bursting hills, ice cold lochs and strength-sapping mud,” with obstacles such as a firepit, live electrical cables and 10-foot walls to contend with.
“To complete Tough Mudder you need to be physically strong, determined, and courageous,” said Gilbert Hunter, Formedix Technical Author and one of the intrepid five. “Team Formedix is none of these things and less, but we’re prepared to give this our best shot in the name of charity. Twenty-two percent of contestants don’t make it to the finish line, so statistically that’s at least one of us – but we’re going to try and beat those odds.
“The Beatson Cancer Charity carries out amazing work to help cancer patients and their families, and some of us in the team have been personally affected by the work they do. Tough Mudder is the least we can do to help such a worthy cause.”
The Beatson Cancer Charity provides complementary therapy services and funding enhancements in cancer treatment, care and research, in partnership with Glasgow’s Beatson Hospital. It also provides funding for ground-breaking cancer treatment, care and research.
