Thousands take part in Scotland’s first Tough Mudder
Six men from Aberdeen took part
A 12-MILE obstacle course which sees participants run through flames and ice cold water has been held in Scotland for the first time.
Thousands of people descended upon Dumfriesshire to take part in Tough Mudder.
And a team of six men from Aberdeen took part in the event, which was designed by British special forces to test fitness, stamina, mental strength and camaraderie.
The challenge took place at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate in Thornhill, with more than 5,000 “mudders” taking part throughout the weekend.
Described by organisers as “the toughest event on the planet”, the challenge was the brainchild of Will Dean and Guy Livingstone.
Mr Dean said: “The event is not about finishing times or winning a first place medal; simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honour.”
