Toughest Mudder the 8-hour Tough Mudder event took place over the weekend outside of Philadelphia as the series made it's Northeast stop. The race began at midnight and after 8:00 am finishers began to cross the line. Many favorites from the World's Toughest Mudder community came out to the event in the hopes to gain contender status (25 miles) for World's Toughest Mudder. With Ryan Atkins sitting out this race, his North American Toughest Mudder winning streak would come to an end. This opened the door for 2016 WTM winner Trevor Cichosz to come in and take the win running 40 miles in the process. On the women's side, it was Allison Tai who took the top spot completing 35 miles. Relive the night with photos from Bob Mulholland.
