Brave souls put their bodies on the line for personal glory or raise money for charity.

Hundreds of competitors, competing as groups or individuals, overcame a variety of obstacles and tasks while taking part in the Warrior Beach Assault on Whitley Bay beach.

It’s a tough race and none of us found it easy but, we have enjoyed it.

The yearly event is along the lines of Tough Mudder, where participants have a gruelling 10k to cover whilst still traversing such things as the Hay Bay Hurdle.

Despite the wet and windy weather, there was a large turnout.

Among those who took part were the Fifth Fusiliers, who ran alongside each other through the whole course.

Other members of the Fifth Fusiliers ran a hot drinks stand at the finish line for competitors and spectators.
