30 year old Teacher from West Midlands. Never knew much about OCR really – other than Spartan and Tough Mudder advertisements. Towards the end of 2014, My cousin who had done loads previously suggested I tried Tough Guy with him, so I (blindly) signed up to it. From that first experience in Jan 2015, that first medal-I got the ‘bug’. Took part in several over the year, meeting amazing people along the way. I think its a great excuse to keep fit, as well as meet new people and see England. What do I get out of it, a sense of achievement. Whether that’s beating my own set target, or helping someone else achieve theirs.
