The 2017 OCR World Championships Race Experience

By |October 23rd, 2017|

You could feel the nervous tension in the air at the OCR World Championships at dusk on Thursday night. In 12 short hours, the first racers of the weekend would be taking their mark.  Athletes from 67 different nations were congregating around the obstacles as the finishing touches were being made.  Strategies were developing and although we did not speak the same languages, you could tell we were all thinking the same thing; this course is going to be brutal.

Race Recap: Tough Mudder Austin, TX

By |May 12th, 2017|

Each time I stand at the entrance to race, I feed off the energy of everyone else to get me pumped to start off from the entrance with a burst of speed. I can’t help but enjoy the spirit of what these things are about to me, the spirit of pushing yourself to a new height and doing things you wouldn’t normally do. I started doing Tough Mudder thanks to a friend at work

Race Recap: Tough Mudder Western New York

By |August 31st, 2016|

Tough Mudder made its annual return to the Kent family farm in Andover, New York. This year surely did not disappoint as the weather was perfect and all of the new obstacles for 2016 were on display. The weather for the weekend was mostly sunny with temperatures in the upper 80’s. The Army Golden Knights put on a parachuting display several times throughout the weekend. The Mudder Village was a celebratory scene with Shock Top beer all around.

Tough Mudder Heads to Bali

By |July 20th, 2016|

Tough Mudder continues its international expansion with an event this fall in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Bali. Tough Mudder Bali is set to take place on October 1-2, 2016; the international OCR series heads to the island nation in Indonesia. For those looking for the ultimate racecation, this could top them all. Planning a honeymoon around that time, Bali could be a legionnaires dream spot combining the love for all things obstacle racing and mud runs as well as the idyllic island nation.

Why Every OCR Athlete Should do World’s Toughest Mudder…

By |November 19th, 2015|

Once a year these two worlds collide in an international competition called World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM). Even if you are not an ultra-distance OCR athlete, WTM needs to be on your bucket list of races, and here is why…

24 Moments From WTM 2015

By |November 17th, 2015|

The Lake Las Vegas WTM course is pretty similar to the landscape from a particular movie from my childhood - the desert of Tatooine. It's actually quite remarkable how the "resort section" of Lake Las Vegas has lush green colf courses replete with water fountains, finely manicured lawns wrapping the easments from hotel to hotel. As soon as you reach the cul-de-sac at the top of the hill and enter Tough Mudder land there's a dramatic shift in scenery

TM2.0: Tough Mudder Redefined

By |January 14th, 2015|

The early buzz may be about the new obstacles (I promise, the details are coming soon), but the real changes on the course alter the dynamic of what it takes to become a Tough Mudder: Teamwork. Many of the new or upgraded obstacles require teamwork to get over, and approximately half of the 2015 Tough Mudder course cannot be completed alone. Remember the days when you ran up Everest solo? No more. Climbing out of Mud Mile pits by yourself? Nope. Hold Your Wood? Bring a team for these telephone poles. "We didn't set out to make it tougher, we decided to deliver new obstacles and challenged for Mudders to overcome - together."

World’s Toughest Mudder – Pre-Race Thoughts from a Veteran Racer

By |November 11th, 2014|

The hype and buzz within the World’s Toughest Community (WTM) has been crazy since the date and location was announced back in May. Tough Mudder decided with its fourth WTM to really change things up and step away from the home venue of Raceway Park in Englishtown New Jersey, and take the show out to Las Vegas. I can say I am glad I raced last year so that I did one at Raceway, but I am very happy for a change of venue. While no two events are the same, even if at the same location, the change will keep everyone guessing. Personally I think this change will have an impact on the final standings, while it will likely still be the same few ultra-elites in the top 10, I think we may see a new winner for both the male and female.

Race Recap: Tough Mudder Tri-State 2014

By |November 5th, 2014|

This was my second Tough Mudder so I was very excited to know I would be able to take the Legionnaires loop this time and do the "Fire In Your Hole” obstacle. As I dressed in the parking lot, I was pretty impressed to see the large turnout for a Sunday, the second day of the event.
