Team ‘Topshop’ Win the – Yorkshire – iON Experience

Tough Mudder –  Yorkshire is soon approaching and it is time to announce the iON Experience Winners.


The prize of becoming film stars for a day (of sorts) has been won by a group of friends from Sheffield, UK.   The team members will be strapped up with the waterproof and robust – iON video cameras and followed through the burly assault course by iON’s Creative Capture film crew. The footage will then be edited together for the team to produce a film which will be the ultimate Tough Mudder memorabilia.

The team named ‘Topshop’ consists of three girls and two guys. The name was decided by the girls as the three of them work in the Topshop clothing retail store.   The Tough Mudder event will be  taking place in Yorkshire on the 2nd and 3rd of August 2014.


Names from left to right, top to bottom – Jo Sainsbury, 27 – Rach Telford, 21 – Beth Trueman, 20 – Damien Stubley, 18 – Sam Brotherton, 22

So your team name is ‘Topshop’, Tell us about that?

The three of us girls work in Topshop so the name made sense. The boys didn’t really have any choice in the matter and were peer pressured to join our team so that they could pull us up obstacles!

Three words that would best describe your team?

Determined, adrenaline junkies that all love a challenge

Have you been training and if so what have you been doing?

Yeah we’ve all done a fair bit of training and running, but how it pays off on the day is a different story. Myself and Sam have been training lots at the gym together and Jo has been doing boot camp dragging rocks and carrying filled cartons of water!

Have you ever done anything like this before?

No this is the first time for all of us!

How do you think your team will get on?

I think as a team we all have our strengths and weaknesses, but the one thing we all have in common is our determination and we’re going to give every obstacle our very best!

What would you normally be doing on a weekend?

WORKING! (We have lives we promise)

Is anyone on your team anxious about taking on this mission?

I think we are all a little bit nervous, but the excitement and adrenaline has taken over us on the run up to the event now!

How do you feel about being followed by a film crew through the course?

Even more excited that we can look back at the day and laugh at ourselves falling on our faces!

Will you be embracing the mud or trying to look presentable?

Embracing the mud, all the way!!

Anything you would like to add?

Our team is raising money for teenage cancer trust, and if anyone would like to donate to our Just Giving page you can by texting TSTM99 ( donation of £1) to 70070!

We wish Team Topshop the best of luck and look forward to meeting you at the weekend.
