Tough Mudder London West 5k (Saturday)
Epic action. In 2020 every Tough Mudder 5k course will feature 13 awesome obstacles, including some of the World-famous obstacles that you'd expect (and a few new ones you won't) and crams them into 5 mud-filled kilometres. Forget personal bests and finish times and enjoy a weekend adventure with your mates at the Culden Faw Estate in Oxfordshire.
Legendary party. And the fun isn't over when you cross the finish line. Celebrate and enjoy live music, craft beer, food trucks, fitness challenges, games, and more in Mudder Village. (Start time tbc)

Culden Faw is a monster of an estate near Henley-on-Thames, covering thousands of acres, with plenty of hills, valleys, and fields and lots of thick wooded areas. With such varied terrain, your tired legs won’t know what to expect next as you make your way through the course. Hopefully you and your teammates have been doing plenty of dead lifts!
The course is designed to be very difficult and the terrain is at times muddy, slippery and can be potentially dangerous. You will be wet after the first couple of miles. You must be able to swim 50m if you attempt the Walk the Plank obstacle. If you do not feel comfortable about completing an obstacle, do not attempt it - move on to the next.
Running alone? We’ve got your back. In 2020 all events will have designated solo runner waves so you can meet other lone wolves, form a muddy pack and get goal-crushing.
First-hand event reviews from people who’ve been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
Write a review and you’ll be entered into a monthly draw to win a pair of running shoes of your choice from Pro:Direct Running.
