In addition to tackling dozens of adrenaline-inducing obstacles, on Tough Mudder event day, Mudders must also run through a gauntlet of emotions. From start line nerves to finish line euphoria, the emotions that Mudders experience are as diverse and exhilarating as the obstacles themselves.
And while every Mudder journey is unique, there are three moments you’re absolutely guaranteed to have on a Tough Mudder course.
“Thank you random stranger.”
Tough Mudder is not a race-- it’s a challenge that puts camaraderie over course time. At every single Tough Mudder obstacle, you’ll see strangers helping strangers. And while you’ll want to stop and thank every one in person, there’s an even more effective way to show your thanks-- passing it on to someone else at the next obstacle.
“Holy &%*#, I can’t believe I just did that.”
We’re all about pushing yourself and overcoming fear in a positive and supportive environment. The encouraging environment found on all Tough Mudder courses gives you not only the opportunity, but the confidence to surprise yourself in the most awesome, life-changing ways.
Some feelings you’ll have on a Tough Mudder course can’t be put into words. Whether it’s the inspiration you feel running alongside a amazing people or the laughter and joy you share with a teammate or stranger who pulls you out of a mud pit, the experiences you have on course will stay with you long after the finish line.
So go on, get out there and make 2016 count. Check out the event lineup here.
See you in the mud.
