NLL Legends - Team Shotts!
Tough Mudder 2018 – Shotts Leisure Centre
Team Shotts once again took part in this year’s Tough Mudder event – the 10-mile obstacle course was no match for the team of 23! A mixture of both NL Leisure staff and members braved the poor weather conditions, with torrential rain and thunderstorms unable to dampen the team’s spirits!
The team set off at 5.45am, allowing them to make the 8.30am start time that they had been set. The course as always was particularly gruelling, with Wishaw Duty Manager Denis Sweeney commenting that;
''It was the hardest thing I have ever done, I never expected to spend a Saturday attempting a 10mile obstacle course getting electrocuted and sliding into ice baths, just to name a few, but if you just keep smiling you will get through it. I've signed up for next year already and this time I will be training for it!”
Particular thanks go to NL Leisure members David Wilson & Michael Feeley who played a huge part in arranging and organising the day, as well as encouraging sign ups and preparing for the event.
All of us here at NL Leisure would like to say a huge well done to the whole team on what is an incredible achievement!
Team Shotts are set to go again at Tough Mudder 2019 and are hoping for an even bigger group to participate next year, interested? Email Calvin.Neilson@nlleisure.com if you’d like to join Team Shotts!
