With July winding to a close, so is the Grand Canyon Challenge, the first digital challenge adventure coming your way, but it won’t be the last.
With this recent err….extended off-season, the brilliant minds at TMHQ pooled our baddest and best ideas and got together to think of all the ways we could continue the fun off-course this Summer.
For those who missed it, Tough Mudder Challenges is a brand new digital challenge adventure that gives you 21-days of activities to push you physically and mentally. Each activity is designed to continue your training, test you with puzzles, and incorporate your creativity. We’ve created a digital group to go with it and keep the stoke high whether you’re conquering with your crew or taking it on solo.
The Many Miles
Mudders hit the ground running and did not stop for a full 3 weeks. From the first day of the challenge (July 9) until the unofficial ending (July 30) Mudders logged 119,390 miles of walking, running, biking, crawling, and more. You collectively climbed 2,728,529 feet of elevation. And we tracked 94,568 total workouts. However you chose to complete it, you did not stop moving forward.
When you hear the words Pyramid Scheme and Facebook Group, you might already have an idea of where this is going. Well, you’d be wrong. That’s because this version of Pyramid Scheme involved scheming with friends to build a human pyramid, with the option of posting for proof. We saw Mudders come out with all forms of creativity building pyramids in group and pairs. We saw kids and Grandparents take part in the action. We saw dogs at the peak and we even saw one very impressive solo pyramid. Well played, Mudders, well played.
Possibly one of the hardest challenges presented to the group was the challenge to do a handstand against a wall and put on a t-shirt while upside down. If you have never tried this, it’s a lot harder than it looks. Go ahead, give it a try. We’ll wait.
Challengers stepped up to the test in true Mudder fashion and they donned their best attire. Here’s a recap of our true finishers who have definitely earned themselves a finisher beer after this feat of strength.
