They are usually seen looking glamorous with perfect blow dries, manicures and designer handbags. But an adventurous group of WAGs swapped it all to take part in a Tough Guy challenge near Wolverhampton.
The 12-strong group got as muddy as their famous other halves do on the football pitch when they took on the 7km course in Perton.
The WAGS emerged mud-splattered but grinning happily after getting ‘stuck in’.
Manchester United WAGs were among those who waded through mud and crawled through boggy swamps.
Phil Jones’s girlfriend Kaya Hall and Chris Smalling’s girlfriend Sam Cooke took part, along with Chantelle Tagoe, the fiancee for former England striker Emile Heskey. Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos’s girlfriend Dani Emery also took part and was pictured grinning as she slithered through mud on her stomach.
The WAGs took on the Tough Guy’s children’s course but organiser Billy Wilson said they had no qualms about getting their hands dirty.
“They loved it,” said Mr Wilson, who has been staging Tough Guy contests on land in Jenny Walker’s Lane for 27 years.
“They did the children’s course and a lot of them said they’d like to come back with their children or their partners and do it again.
“I took them for a ride around the site first to see what they would be doing and then got stuck in and really loved it. Everyone had a brilliant time.” The group of WAGs were raising money for charity Limitless Skies, which supports orphans in Tanzania.
The group was led by Sam Cooke, who is dating Manchester United defender Chris Smalling. She said: “As a group we wanted to really test ourselves and raise money for Limitless Skies in the process. We had heard that Tough Guy is the hardest obstacle challenge out there both physically and mentally.”
Thousands of people flock to Perton every year to take on the Tough Guy challenge, which sees them run cross country, crawl through tunnels and jump hay bales. This year’s event took place in July and saw more than 1,500 people take part.
A total of 65 people were treated for minor injuries during the event although the number of casualties has been falling year on year. The Tough Guy course describes itself as a ‘mighty and revered obstacle course’.
