Tough Mudder X is rapidly approaching and Tough Mudder gave Mud Run Guide a sneak peek at some of the athletes who will be attending this unique obstacle course race to be televised on CBS. It appears all-stars from the obstacle racing, CrossFit and Ninja Warrior world. Even an Olympian is jumping into the mix. All will be descending on the Tough Mudder X course on July 14, 2017, for the filming.

We got on a call with Tough Mudder HQ to talk about some of the athletes and what we can expect to see. This event will surely be a showdown of the best of the best from multiple sports! On the call is Nolan Kombol, Chris Martbie, and Eric “E-Rock” Botsford talk about some of the athletes confirmed as competitors (even more than listed below). Listen in on the whole conversation.
