Tough Mudder: Physical Activity With a Cause
This past May, I completed one of the most physically challenging events in my life – it also happened to be one of the most fun events I have ever participated in as well. Tough Mudder came to New England with its epicenter at Mount Snow in Vermont. For three days, thousands of participants came out each day to compete in this 10-mile obstacle course up and down Mount Snow.
The Tough Mudder claims to be one of the hardest events on earth, and the website explains that “Tough Mudder events [is a] hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.” From first hand experience, I can attest that all the above are true. However, what this statement fails to recognize is how fun this race can be.
Not only is this race physically challenging and fun, but also it raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project, and has raised over 3 million dollars to date.
This is a great reason to start training for a physically challenging event, and Tough Mudder is coming to the Boston area in May (the exact location is still TBA). If you sign up now you can still register for the discounted price, but the longer you wait the more the price will go up. Don’t wait, sign up and start training today!
