Judo members have been getting stuck in the mud to raise funds.
Mark Varty, 50, Simon Banks, 42, Andrew Murray, 40, and Danny Conboy, 39, have all taken on a 12.5 mile Tough Mudder obstacle course in aid of Stevenage Judo Club.
The quartet raised more than £1800 for their efforts, which included negotiating skips full of ice, electric shocks, log carrying, a river crossing, monkey bars and mud tunnels.
The money has been put towards the cost of replacing the club’s judo mats, alongside a donation to armed forces charity Help for Heroes.
The fundraiser means the club, which trains on Monday and Friday evenings between 6.30pm to 8pm at Marriotts Sports Centre in Stevenage, has now raised enough to buy the mats, which cost £4,400.
