Getting Lost in the Woods Racing: A Cautionary Helicopter-Based Tale

By |May 15th, 2018|

uring a difficult trail race, you sign up to be pushed past your comfort zone. In certain types of races, you can expect to be told to do new activities and translate your skills towards new challenges. With that challenge comes responsibility and risk. It’s both up to the race and the racer to figure out what’s the appropriate amount of risk, and how to minimize that.

As one of the biggest ultra-obstacle course races, World's Toughest Mudder (WTM) frequently is the highlight and peak of people's racing year.
