12 miles and 28 obstacles

As part of Abingdon Health’s ongoing commitment to supporting our charity partners, Sands, the still birth and neonatal death charity and Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, Abbas Din and Malcolm Briggs took part in Tough Mudder Yorkshire (7th Aug 2016).

Over 12 obstacle-strewn mud-covered miles, up and down dale, in the grounds of Broughton Hall (Skipton), the guys took on this grueling course for a two very worthy causes.

Assisted by Chris Brown, a last minute replacement, it took the intrepid adventurers 3 hours and 15 minutes to navigate the course which included some imaginative obstacles, some of which were called kiss of mud, cage crawl and electroshock therapy.

Malcolm commented:

“To be honest I hadn’t looked at the course before taking part. I thought it would have put me off…I was right! Some of the obstacles were horrendous!

“It was great team effort to finish the course, especially from Abbas as he picked up an injury about 2 miles in.

“Despite all the fun we were all pleased and humbled to be able support the fantastic, selfless work Sands UK and St Mary’s do on a daily basis”

The team would like to thank the organisers of Tough Mudder for putting on a great event, although very muddy and slightly crazy! Also, a special thank you goes to everyone who has made a donation so far.
