Tough Mudder London West Classic (Saturday)
Step Outside Your Comfort Zone. We're heading back to the beautiful Culden Faw Estate to kick off the 2020 season, with an 8-10 mile obstacle course packed full of thick mud and 25 of the World's best mental and physical challenges - a mix of fan-favourites and brand new innovations.
The rolling hills, thick forest and steep inclines are sure to have you at the edge of both your physical and mental boundaries. But hey, that is what the Orange Headband is all about. Test your toughness like never before, with a range of difficulty options at select obstacles. Can you make it all the way?
Then grab a drink at the bar, kick back with music, entertainment, test yourself with epic Tough Mudder fitness challenges, and refuel with street food and treats. (Start times 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.
