Two weeks ago, during the great northeast snowshow, we challenged Mudders to capture their outdoor workout and upload it using #SnowMudder. We promised the winner a flight, hotel stay and entry to Tough Mudder Whistler 2015. While we got hundreds of hilarious submissions from Mudders nationwide, one Mudder boldly stood out from the rest.
Tough Mudder London West on Saturday the 2nd of May, has sold out. Due to traffic restrictions on local roads we have to cap total participant numbers and the fantastic response from Mudders this year has meant we’ve reached that total faster than ever before.
For a half-decade, thousands upon thousands of children have witnessed their parents and grandparents; uncles and aunts; babysitters and teachers boldly traverse Tough Mudder’s 10 to 12-mile obstacle course.
