Tough Mudder...an endurance and obstacle course designed by British Special Forces
The first Tough Mudder was organized just over two years ago. The original concept was actually one of the finalists in a Harvard School of Business competition by the founder. Tough Mudder plans to hold about 30-40 events across the US, Australia, and the UK this year alone.
Before the event, all participants are asked to recite a pledge...
- I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
- I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time.
- I do not whine – kids whine.
- I help my fellow Mudders complete the course.
- I overcome all fears.
And they're off...all smiley and clean...but not for long!

Mud literally flying everywhere as they rush to crawl through...
And then put his game face back on. It seems 10,000 volts was more than enough for Donkeyxote.
PS...that was one mudder of a blog post.
