On Saturday I travelled down to Winchester to watch people abuse themselves over a 12 mile course in the last Tough Mudder of the year. Over 20,000 were due to take part in the obstacle course which now has several sites across the UK and has events around the world.
A little back story... I have always wanted to cover events like this, after seeing photos from the Tough Guy event on Mike King's flickr feed many years ago. Since then his awesome photos, stories and advice have inspired me on an almost daily basis. Tragically Mike died a few weeks ago, the Observer (where he worked for few years) have put together a small collection of his world beating photographs for his obituary, which can be seen here.
