It’s not a race. It’s not a competition. Without a clock, medal, or even a winner, Tough Mudder makes sure that each participant has their eyes on the only thing that matters— finishing the course with their team. Oh, and 10 to 12 miles of mud. Throughout the course Mudders are challenged to become better than themselves, and to help each other out along the way. More than 20 obstacles will force runners to swing across yawning chasms of water, lug teammates on their backs across tedious terrains, and crawl through thick muddy fields under low-hanging barbed wire. And at the end of it all are the rewards: an ice-cold beer shared with filthy new friends and the satisfaction of having pushed yourself and your team to the limit.
