On Sunday 8th September 2019, a number of employees from both Radio.co and Podcast.co will take part in a gruelling 10 mile endurance event called Tough Mudder. The aim is to raise money for charity, but we need your help. Donate as much or as little as you can for a good cause.

Tough Mudder Challenge

Tough Mudder is renowned as a gruelling endurance event in which participants attempt 10-12 mile long obstacle courses that test mental and physical strength. Daryl, Ben, Laura, Jim, Rowan, and I will be forming the Radio.co & Podcast.co Dream Team!

Last year, I had the pleasure of running my first Tough Mudder alongside some friends, and it was something I couldn't have prepared for. I'd never been pushed so close to my limits, and realised that I, alongside others, were relying on the generosity of strangers on the course to help pull us through. Whether it's being zapped by 10,000 volts on Electroshock Therapy, or being dunked in ice during Arctic Enema, you feel your body giving up and it's purely mental grit that keeps you moving forward. I must be mad for signing up to do it all again!

It's an absolute pleasure to participate in the event with such a great group of people, who are already actively building up both strength and stamina for what is set to be one of the biggest physical (and mental) challenges they'll ever face.

We hope that with your support, we can make this event one to remember!
