News Meet 9 Of The National Relay Teams Competing At WTM 2017 Author: Tough Mudder October 31, 2017 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The Team Competition has always been a unique offering at World’s Toughest Mudder – challenging groups of athletes to spend 24+ hours staggering through course together, helping each other out of physical and emotional pits. But this year, in addition to the tried-and-true solo and team categories at WTM, we’re creating a new layer of competition… Enter the National Team Relay Category. This format promises to pit teams of 4 (or more) from nations across the world against each other in a fast-paced, strategic 24-hour test of toughness. Relay teams will be required to run their first and last laps together as a team, and at all other times at least 50% of the team must be active. But the strategy the nation uses is up to them. Up for grabs with the National Team Relay competition is pride, a sweet trophy, and ultimate international bragging rights. With these 9 National Teams all competing for glory, will it be Team Canada #1, Team Canada #2, Team Denmark, Team Germany #1, Team Germany #2, Team Ireland, Team U.K., Team USA #1, or Team USA #2 to log the most miles? Study up on the team’s strengths, stats, and experience below and wager your bets, Mudder Nation.
