BARBED wire, ropes, water and mud were just a few of the obstacles that Tash Griffin and her team faced as they tackled the Gone Mad Obstacle course in at Barmaryee on the weekend.

But the personal trainer and 30 of her clients made it through thanks to a little teamwork.

"It was good to (the team) work together and no one was left behind," Tash said.

The team was among hundreds of people who took part in the 10km course on Saturday, which included 22 obstacles.

And it proved to be hard work, with the tyre pushing section the least of competitor's worries.

"There were three water stations where you had to go in water over your head and it was freezing," Tash said.

"You even had to climb under barbed wire and through mud."

Tash said she was proud of her team for tackling the course together and completing it in an hour and half.

"To start off with people were hesitant when it came to the water obstacles, but at the end you were that dirty and wet and you didn't care," she said.

Tash said if you plan on tackling a course like this a bit of training would go a long way.

"A bit of training is necessary for this," Tash said.

"If you're not working in a team, there are obstacles where you need to rely on others and it'd be hard to have the strength to do it yourself," Tash said.
