Eye Feel Good Outdoors takes on the toughest test yet… TOUGH MUDDER 2012

Tough Mudder is a HARDCORE 12 mile-long obstacle course designed by the Special Forces to test all-round strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses and half a million inspiring participants, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge in the world.


9 boys came back MEN. (Well 7 came back men the other 2 ran round with cameras and camcorders!) It all began 9 weeks ago with a conversation between James Rees-Hopkins a personal trainer and owner of Bearfit with Eye Feel Good Chief Executive Richard Fee. From there a team was built and with several muddy training sessions at Antrim Lough Shore the 7 eager participants were ready.

6 flew from Belfast, 2 drove from Scotland and 1 came from Manchester to take on the mighty Tough Mudder Challenge in Cholmondeley, Cheshire. Richard Fee, James Rees-Hopkins, Mark Kennedy, Mark Gaul, Brian Morrison, Maurice Graffin and David Foster where Team Eye Feel Good with Oliver Boyd and Gavin McLaughlin as Support and Camera Men.

It was a cold wet muddy morning but sprites where high!

The lads run off from the starting line unaware of the torture to follow.

The two Mark’s icing with death: Plunging into to an ice bath called ‘Arctic Enema’ they have to jump into the ice bath and duck under a barbed fence… COLD!

Team EFGO tackle the freezing lake… Under barrels!

They thought the ice bath was bad but then they hit the ‘Under Barrels’… Brain freeze understatement. Seeing stars and losing vital body heat was extreme. Followed by more 20ft walls to climb and logs to carry!

EFGO Team took on the ‘walk the plank’ obstacle in style.

Rick just about to become a monkey or else fall into the freezing muddy water…

This is the aftermath of Rick from the ‘Electroshock Therapy’… Poor rick took it like a real MAN. Video coming soon


After 19 torturous obstacles the last one was called ‘Electroshock Therapy’… The most feared obstacle of them all… Richard took it bad but made it after being shocked several times and blinded with mud. Being pulled out by the rest of the team was his only option!
