Four members of Coalburn Silver Band recently took part in the annual Edinburgh 'Tough Mudder' event.
Held on a course at Holyrood Park the intrepid (and fit) bandsmen tackled the 5 kilometre route around the famous landmark of Arthur's Seat. The quartet also had to overcome a series of obstacles on the route including cargo nets, a warped wall and high rings.
The four completed the course in just under an hour and a half, with solo euphonium Ian Jamieson telling 4BR: "We had a fantastic, if tiring time getting to grips with a brilliant course.
We all managed to complete it thanks to teamwork and Coalburn camaraderie!"

However, the four didn't have much time for a well earned rest, as the following day they were back in action as the band participated in the 'Brass Showcase' event at Johnstone Town Hall where the band won a number of awards including 'Most Entertaining Band'.
