On Sunday 15th of July, 11 hardy women from Dalbeattie completed the Tough Mudder Challenge at Drumlanrig Castle. Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, determination, and team working skills and the company who organises the challenge sponsors Help for Heroes. 

The Dalbeattie team comprised Kim Kalotka, Simone Leslie, Amanda Wilson, Kath Lord-Green, Susan Robinson, Donna McKnight, Angeline Dingwall, Kirsty Gaffney, Teresa Qunitela, Barbara Johnston, and Ruth Walker and they became the "Dalbeattie Destroyers" for the day. Well done ladies.
