FITNESS daredevils and charity runners took to Cholmondeley Castle last weekend when Tough Mudder returned.

Hundreds of competitors took on a variety of courses and obstacles in the castle gardens across September 9-10, with distances from 5km all the way up to 15km, with a mile-long course for youngsters.

Competitors braved the obstacles and the heatwave to complete the course and Tough Mudder bosses thanked the castle for hosting.


Matthew Brooke, managing director of Tough Mudder, said: “We were beyond excited to head back to Chesire for another action-packed weekend.

“Tough Mudder North West has always been a favourite of mine that always seems to test our entrants to the limit.

“Surrounded by the majestic Cholmondeley Castle, the stage was set for a picture-perfect, muddy weekend.”
