The Wolf Run is Wild Running – a unique combination of three kinds of off-road running: mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs. The only Wild Run in the UK, it’s a hardcore 10k run across raw natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes & thick mud. Running in a pack, or as a lone wolf, you’ll tackle a series of tough obstacles – both manmade and natural – designed to test your mental & physical strength, skill and stamina. You’ll run, climb, jump, wade, crawl and swim through a course designed to challenge you on every level.
Here are my top 10 foods that will not only make you healthier, reduce the probability of diseases such as heart disease but could help you to lose weight by speeding up your metabolism.
Pumpkin seeds are a good source of magnesium, which plays a key role in regulating the pumping of the heart and the relaxation of blood vessels. Pumpkin seeds are a source of zinc, which is vital in warding off osteoporosis among other benefits. They also contain L-tryptophan, which help with sleep patterns and lowering depression levels. Minerals including phosphorous, manganese, iron and copper are found in these little seeds.
Almonds contain mono-unsaturated fat, which helps control cholesterol levels and protects against heart disease. The are also high in protein and fibre along with vitamins E and B, magnesium and calcium.
Blueberries are not only yummy they may help to preserve your vision and control blood sugar levels too. As well as being packed full of anti-oxidants. The NHS reports that eating three or more portions of blueberries a week can reduce risk of heart attacks by almost one third.
These tasty nuts are packed full of phosphorous and magnesium, helping promote healthy bones as well as being rich in selenium, an important mineral for ensuring a healthy immune system.
Avocados are incredibly nutritious, containing B-Vitamins in abundance, more potassium than a banana, being packed full of heart-friendly monounsaturated fats and being loaded with fibre. These small fruits are great for controlling inflammation and blood pressure making them an all-round super healthy food.
These tiny seeds deliver a huge amount of nutrients, including high levels of fibre, protein and omega-3 fats. Being loaded with antioxidants, calcium and manganese among others, Chia seeds are one of the easiest and most accessible sources of several important nutrients.
Coconut oil is made up of a powerful combination mix of fatty acids – shown in studies to have huge boosts on brain function, being incredibly good for heart strength and helping in the reduction of abdominal fat, the dangerous fat that sits around the abdominal cavity and organs. As well as being a very satisfying food, helping you feel fuller for longer coconut oil also has uses as a moisturiser and can protect against hair damage when used cosmetically!
Turmeric is the underdog of the ‘superfoods’, providing perhaps the most body-protecting benefits with the least amount of credit. Just a few of the amazing benefits adding Turmeric to your diet can provide an enhanced cardiovascular output, improvements in muscular efficiency, reduction of inflammation – reducing the amount of time you might feel sore after exercising, and improved brain function. If these aren’t reasons enough to go out and bulk-buy Turmeric right now, it also tastes great added to any savoury dish (although it WILL stain everything yellow).
Another food that is packed with anti-oxidants, when choosing a treat of 70%-85% or higher dark chocolate you will also be keeping the sugar content to a minimum. Numerous studies have shown benefits provided by dark chocolate on the heart and brain function as well as reducing blood pressure , cholesterol, and insulin resistance – a major risk factor for metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Linseed and Flaxseeds are one of the best sources of Omega 3 and are rich in Lecithin. Both aids digestion and fat metabolism. Flaxseed is a great source of lignans, which helps to support women’s health.

The original obstacle race will add in a location in Scotland on January 3rd 2016 working in partnership with Brass Monkey Events. For the first time ever Tough Guy founder, Mr Mouse aka Bill Wilson, has allowed the Tough Guy name to move from outside Wolverhampton, the site of the original Tough Guy assault course which first began in 1987.
Brass Monkey Events have renamed the event to ‘Mac Tough Guy’, which will, as it stands, be the first Obstacle Course Race (OCR) of 2016 just four weeks before The Original. Brass Monkey Events are a team of obstacle racers and fitness professionals who have experienced a variety of obstacle races and want to bring something different to the race scene.
Brass Monkey commented:
“Under the guidance and mentor-ship of Mr Mouse we are creating a course that will do Tough Guy the original proud. The event will make great practise to The Original later that month”
The 15km course will be set at the most extreme location between Glasgow and Edinburgh in the coldest Scottish winter. Brass Monkey continued:
“We will be continuing you the essence of Tough Guy The Original with respect to the obstacles contained in the event as you know it. However, we will be adding our own Scottish Twist to these obstacles, hoping to add a new flavour for you all here in Scotland. We will be using the terrain at its best, the weather we hope will bring you the best of the weather that we know Scotland is known for (just imagine). We will leak some obstacles and training tips as the event approaches, keep your eyes glued to our facebook page”
Entry fee will be £65 p/person with a number of prices for teams of 5 and 10.
Muddy Race had 9 teams at Judgement Day Bagshot last Sunday. The 9 teams were made up of an A and B team (competitive obstacle racers), Vets (experienced obstacle racers, and the only official ‘Vets’ team – our very own silver warriors), mixed fun teams and a ladies team. One thing was sure, Muddy Race dominated on the day by having the most teams out there, which in our opinion ‘turned Judgement Day Bagshot on 21st December 2014 green!’.
Muddy Race teams operated with pride, grit and determination and most importantly had fun, which is the true Muddy Race spirit. Muddy Race also debuted the Muddy Race Gazebo and humongous 7ft flag which teams congregated before and after the race. There was no shortage of treats to devour, with teams kindly bringing homemade and (shop bought) cakes to share. The Muddy Race Cakes also had their second appearance thanks to our lovely secret Muddy Race Cake Maker whom surprised us on the day.
With further ado, here are, in our opinion, the best picks from the Judgement Day Bagshot photo album. Enjoy and see you again next year for more fun, more teams, and even more cakes!
