Tough Mudder invites you to the season ending event at the new venue of Holmbush Estate  to tackle overgrown woodlands, gruelling trails and gritty mud with an event to test the hardiest of Mudders

Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course challenge designed not only to test physical strength but also mental grit.

In 2016, Tough Mudder events across the UK and around the world feature new and world class obstacles. More than 95% of participants are expected to register as part of a team; to encourage teamwork and camaraderie over competition, the events remain untimed.

An outdoor event for the whole family. Enjoy cheering each other on and be a part of a fabulous event. Making memories as a family.

What’s New for 2016?

  • Tough Mudder Half: Debuting in 2016 is the newest addition to the Tough Mudder family of brands, Tough Mudder Half, a five-mile event format featuring over a dozen signature obstacles – but excluding the fire, ice and electricity elements of the original Tough Mudder events. Debuting at six locations across the UK this season, this new team-oriented event requires less training, making it an accessible yet rewarding challenge for people of all athletic abilities.
  • Brand new obstacles: Participants at the Tough Mudder London South event will take on new obstacles, including “The Block Ness Monster”, where Mudders have to hoist each other over a number of rotating blocks all in waist-deep water. The event will also debut the revamped Pyramid Scheme, back by popular demand, which requires teamwork from friends and strangers, as a human pyramid is the only way up.
  • Legionnaire-Exclusive obstacles: Returning Mudders, known as Legionnaires, get exclusive access to more challenging new upgrades of selected obstacles, including “Rain Man,” a twist on classic water obstacle Cage Crawl, and “Backstabber,” a more demanding and technical version of The Liberator. In addition, Legionnaires will have the option to bypass Electroshock Therapy and instead attempt a high-octane new finish obstacle, Frequent Flyers’ Club, culminating with a leap onto a crash mat from a 15-foot height.
  • Merrell finisher shirts: As global presenting partner for Tough Mudder and Tough Mudder Half events, renowned outdoor footwear and apparel brand Merrell will provide performance finisher t-shirts for all participants.
  • Additionally, all UK events will once again host Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder, a one-mile obstacle course jointly developed by Tough Mudder and Fruit Shoot, the delicious fruit soft drinks brand owned by Britvic PLC. Designed for ages 7-12, Mini Mudder gives kids the opportunity to get muddy, work as a team and experience the thrill of adventure.

Spooky Marsh Farm #countrykids

Halloween isn’t only for trick or treating!

Our Halloween day was special as not only was we spending it with Nanny but we was going to visit Marsh Farm in South Woodham Ferrers in Essex. The boys got dressed up into their Halloween costumes all ready to spook anyone they would meet.

Marsh farm is an Animal Adventure park in Essex which is set on over 30 acres of beautiful farm land, The farm offers you a chance to meet and cuddle the animals, feed the birds through the aviary, take a pony ride, enjoy a spin on a tractor, play in the outdoor fun adventure park and if the weather is wet and cold the children can run off some steam in the indoor soft play area whilst the adults can relax and drink some lovely hot chocolate. Through out the year Marsh Farm put on some special events like Teddy Bears Picnic, Christmas Market and Wizards and Witches.

We visited the farm on 31st October, the boys were all dressed up in their halloween outfits and couldn’t wait to have some spooky fun on the farm.

As soon as we arrived the boys were given a treat bag as they were dressed up, it included some sweets and some spooky stickers. We made our way to the witches cabin to take part in the spellmakers challenge, the boys joined in adding things to the couldron to produce a special spell in which they were rewarded with a bag of rainbow drops.

Next we went to meet the goats, these were Olivers favourite animals ans he really enjoyed feeding them the food that we had bought from the visitors centre, he even tried to kiss them

We walked around the farm looking at the animals and birds, we saw Reindeers, Alpacas, Llamas, Owls, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Pigs, Donkeys and Ponies. There were actors walking around all dressed up Cello the Wizard, Winifred the Witch, Stilts walker and Edward and Mildred unfortunately we couldn’t get close enough to see them as Oliver was very scared of them.

The farm was offering so many things to do like pumpkin carving, ghost train rides, magic show and monster crafts.

The boys enjoyed playing in the soft play area and riding on the mini tractors, milking a cow and playing in the outdoor adventure area where they dug up the sand with the diggers.

The Farm is a lovely place to visit and i’m sure we would have done so much more if the weather was slightly better.

I’m linking up with Coombemills countrykids linky, why not pop on over to see what other fabulous activities you can get up to in the great outdoors and while your there check out Coombe Mill Farm website for a brilliant family holiday.

Spectating A Mudrace

Every year Maldon Promenade Park holds an event where competitors race 400m across the river bed of the River Blackwater, it used to be held on new years day but for the past two years it has been around April -May due to having extremely cold weather. The race can only take place at low tide so that the water is low enough for the competitors to run/wade safely through the water/mud to the opposite bank and back again.

The popularity of the race continues to strive and provides a great days entertainment with over 12000 spectators.

Today the boys and I joined up with my family and stood there on the banks of the river ready to watch these fabulous people mostly in fancy dress cross over the bank and get completely caked with mud from head to toe.

We witnessed people pulling themselves through the mud with their arms, rolling to get through it, crawling through it, sliding on it and even getting completely stuck in it up to their waist where they had to stay for help.

As more and more of the competitors took to the banks the more the mud became unsettled making it virtually impossible for others to get through it!

As you can see from the above picture how many people turned up to watch, it was packed!

It was fun to watch but i bet it was even more fun to participate in.

The park has a brilliant play area where there is a huge wooden ship climbing frame surrounded by sand, the boys had lots of fun playing around with their cousins, chasing each other and having lots of fun in the sun.

Oliver really liked having his feet covered with the sand

20130505-211314.jpgWe finished our day off back at nanny’s house where Oliver was surprised with a lovely gift he received from nanny, his own little trampoline!

20130505-211325.jpgWe have had a lovely exciting day and although i shouldn’t have laughed at the very brave people getting stuck in the mud it did make fabulous viewing.
