Tough Mudder Challenge

Junior and senior pupils from Beech Hall School have taken to the River Bollin for a muddy, wet and fun, inter-school competition of determination, grit and resilience. 

The Tough Mudder course, designed by Head of PE Mr Johnson and Headmaster Mr Allen, was created to give pupils an opportunity to practice resilience and mental strength as well as pushing their physical fitness to new levels, all whilst having fun and getting very muddy. 

More than 100 pupils took part in the obstacle course which saw them climbing fences, army crawling through pipes and slushy mud, scrambling up and down steep muddy hills, and swimming in the river at the end!

Headmaster, James Allen, commented: “We have been so impressed with our junior and senior pupils’ determined spirit and positive attitude as they took part in the recent Beech Hall Tough Mudder competition. Their energy, passion, engagement, enthusiasm and openness to push themselves is admirable, and they are all traits that we do our very best at Beech Hall to nurture. 

“I would like to particularly commend Will and Arthur on their first and second place finishes, and Thomas for an extremely hard-fought run. It is also noteworthy to mention those who completed the course either with just one trainer or none having given them up to the mud (Cooper, Arthur, Rory B) and every pupil who decided to go either paddling or even swimming in the river at the end of it all!”
