World's Toughest Mudder took place in Lake Las Vegas recently. The company debuted some of the new obstacles for 2017 at the event, and Tough Mudder continues to push the envelope on innovative obstacles. Another aspect of the company that Tough Mudder continues to innovate is its coverage.
World's Toughest Mudder has come and gone, but before tackling WTM this year I took on Tough Mudder Tennessee shortly before the 24-hour party in the desert. I wasn't sure if I would go, but since it was driving distance from my house, it means I could stay in my bed and drive to the event the morning of, a rarity in OCR for me. So I decided to hang out with my fellow Legionnaires for a weekend in the mud.
Mud Run Guide is on the ground for comprehensive coverage of the 2016 World's Toughest Mudder. While racing does not start until Saturday at noon the WTM festivities have already begun in Lake Las Vegas. Today athletes checked in and set up their pit areas. The excitement in the air was palpable the start is less than a day away.
Today, Tough Mudder revealed new obstacles for the 2017 season. Some of which will show up this weekend at World's Toughest Mudder. The new obstacles include Augustus Gloop, The Reach Around, Artic Enema - The Rebirth, and Funky Monkey. The new obstacles also Legionnaire exclusives - Kong, Snot Rocket, Stage 5 Clinger, and Black Hole.
It’s World’s Toughest Mudder Week 2016! We are days away from the event. Saturday at high noon the race kicks off in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada. This week Mud Run Guide is looking at top men, women, and teams to watch as we count down the days. So far this week we have looked at the top men to watch, top women to watch, and today we focus on the team event.
The joy and challenge of a 24-hour event are that you don’t need to run fast to succeed. With slow, constant forward progress you can cover a huge amount of ground so that you will look back on your day and feel like you have accomplished something great.
Tough Mudder is making it's way to the television soon with the CBS Sports Series showcasing World's Toughest Mudder and Toughest Mudder announced a few months ago. Recently, Tough Mudder inked a second deal with The CW network to have a multi-platform series on both their CW Seed online network as well as the broadcast CW channel in 2017.
A couple months ago Tough Mudder announced a new offering to their lineup of races. The latest addition to the Tough Mudder family is Toughest Mudder and is set to be a stepping stone for those looking to race World's Toughest Mudder. Toughest Mudder is an eight-hour night obstacle race that bridges the gap between the traditional Tough Mudder race and the grueling 24-hour World's Toughest Mudder.
Tough Mudder Pittsburgh made its return to the Pittsburgh area last week. Coopers Lake Campground hosted the event for the second year in a row. Some weather that rolled through the area Saturday night helped create some muddier conditions than those experienced on Saturday. For anyone considering which day of the weekend to run, I can try and shed some light on the differences between a Saturday run versus one on Sunday.
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.
