About a year ago I signed up for this Tough Guy race thingy (www.toughguy.co.uk). Now the race is next Sunday and I've done minimal training and no charity fund raising. So if you'd all be kind enough to sponsor me I'll go get hypothermia and post the pics up on here for you lot to laugh at. Seems fair to me!
Go to http://www.justgiving.com/un-toughguy to donate. We're raising money for Edale mountain rescue.
Cheers!

Lol,
 
i done much the same last year with a 100 mile cycle ride... no training what so ever...took a short cut on the course as too tired to complete and only managed 85 miles which i thought was pretty good going
 
i'll look at the sposorship site at the end of the week when i get paid

You are a brave man if you've done no training. My mates do it every year and it's very tough.
 
Good luck.

Yeah these things have a way of sneaking up on ya! 85 miles is good goin though with no training.
I wouldn't say I've done no training; I'm a fairly regular runner so my fitness isn't too bad. I'm just not well prepared for this event. Should be interesting...

I think I'd rather sell my bike than go through what you're about to go through!!
 
Worth £10 just for me not to have to do it.
 
All the best and hope the weather is kind

Just a tip, get to the front as quick as you can in the run, otherwise you'll get jammed up getting on the obstacles and you'll be hanging around.....queue hypothermia!
