Here’s another piece from our friends Joseph LeBaron and Travis Pitcher of The Good Line. They filmed it a few years ago at the annual Tough Guy Challenge in Perton, Staffordshire, England. The Tough Guy Challenge is the world’s first obstacle course adventure race. It’s founder Mr. Mouse—known as The Madman of the Midlands—extends an open invitation the last Sunday of January each year for people to visit his farm, kick their feet up and suffer a while. If you listen closely through all of screams, electric traps and broken bones, there’s a philosophy to be uncovered. To learn it, all you have to do is die and choose to come back.
The Good Line will be heading back there this January.
