Tough Mudder Yorkshire 2023

What can we say about Tough Mudder Yorkshire that hasnt already been said?

Mud? ✅ 
Rain? 🌧️🌦️🌧️🌥️🌧️

As you may see from the video, the weather was really changeable (and very windy). Love the hills of Yorkshire (sort of) and Tough Mudder uses that one big hill probably little too much 🤣🤣🤣

Welcome return to Tipping Point on course and it looks like lumberjacked and stairway to heaven now look like main stays. The mud? Oh my god, Kiss of Mud was just the beginning, but Mud Mile (from saturday afternoon and sunday) is just as sloppy, gloopy and slippy as always – which meant Hydrophobia (the next water obstacle) was just a mud bath too!

Love how there was an MC on the finish line (shout out to Dave Payne)

Yorkshire weekend was my first real test in the new 361 Europe Futura train show. I did over 60km across the weekend with no heat spots or blisters. The awesome cushioning along with some mega grip, make these OCR ready shoes!

Tough Mudder Yorkshire final thoughts

Tough Mudder Yorkshire has some big elevation, I think, this time the change in course meant additional elevation. Some awesome views at the top for those  taking on the 15km and10km courses, whilst the 5km remained relatively flat.

Big mud too, very sloppy Kiss of Mud and Yorkshire’s Mud Mile is something else – at the end of this one, it turns into a slip and slide, I was almost taken out by fellow mudder on the Saturday! 

I do enjoy the mud, but its a shame that the next water obstacles (Blockness and Hydrophobia) themselves become a mud bath – especially Hydrophobia – take a look at the video) it was really nasty on the Sunday!

Event village was small but mighty and I do feel there were a lot more spectators around the course – many with their chairs watching Everest.

Yorkshire remains a fantastic course, I just wished the sun shines a litte more!

Elevation and Rain

Even with the great weather we have, how come it always seems to rain in Yorkshire. A very changeable weekend, however it doesnt ditract from an awesome course with some great views. I am pretty sure the course has been changed up for additional elevation gain.
