Has anyone else heard of Tough Mudder? Tough mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all round strength, mental grit, and camaraderie. Tough Mudders have already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $2 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. If you thought the Grouse Grind was a challenge check out this intro video.
Wow this is quite the feat for any athlete! I would love to try it but I honestly wouldn’t make it past the sign up day, I’d be so distracted by all the tough mudders! lol If you think you have more focus and discipline than I do, you can give it your best shot cause it’s coming to Whistler in the summer of 2012! I’m thinking it would be a great event to volunteer for…just sayin.
There is a pledge…
~ I understand that tough mudder is not a race but a challenge.
~ I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time.
~ I do not whine – kids whine.
~ I help my fellow mutters complete the course.
~ I overcome all fears.
They also have a few Facts:
#1 – Marathon running is boring. And the only thing more boring than doing one is watching one.
#2 – Mudders do not take them selves too seriously. You can’t show up without a sense of humour, they greet you at the finish line with a beer, a laugh and a rockin’ live band. Oh and your covered in mud!
#3 – You can’t complete a tough mudder course alone. You need your team mates to help you through the mud, ice-water, fire and 10,000 volts of electricity. Not to mention the 12 foot walls, underground mud tunnels. No one gets left behind!
