Steven Concannon the partner of one of our volunteers, Janelle, is taking part in an event called “Tough Mudder”. He is doing this on behalf of MAF and all sponsorship will be donated to the charity.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. The event is takes place in Scotland on the 14th and 15th July. It is being held at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate, Thornhill, Dumfrieshire.
Steven will take part along with several hundred others, from around the world, as part of a three man team (his friends). The course itself is 11 miles long and contains around 25 military style assaults/obstacles and it takes roughly 3 hours to complete.
