MORE than 17,000 people tackled a 12-mile assault course designed by the special forces at the Culden Faw estate in Hambleden.
Participants in the Tough Mudder challenge, which took place on Saturday and Sunday, had to run 12 miles and overcome more than 20 obstacles.
Each obstacle was designed to test their nerves as well as their strength and fitness. The competitors had to:
lCrawl on their bellies under a barbed wire mesh before jumping into a tank of ice-cold water to swim under a barrier.
lClimb over walls more than 2m high and crawl through narrow plastic pipes filled with muddy water.
