Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
As you round the corner around mile ten at Tough Mudder this year, you’ll see what appears to be another Funky Monkey in the distance. Get a little closer, and you’re reaction might be something like this: WHAT THE #$@& IS THAT?
Well, that’d be Dead Ringer, and here’s what you need to know about it.
We have an important event announcement to share. This year’s Tough Mudder Poconos event is shifting closer to Philadelphia and will now be Tough Mudder Philly which is scheduled for October, 17 & 18, 2015 at Plantation Field in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
This change is part of our commitment to bringing you the best course possible. It provides the opportunity to experience a new venue with a stunningly scenic course featuring rolling hills, varied terrain and a slew of our new-for-2015 obstacles.
Look atop any list of history’s most hair-raising jobs, and you’ll find ‘test pilot’ soaring high in the rankings. And while we’re no NASA, you might be surprised that we’ve got some modern-day test pilots of our own.
Throughout our entire off season and a great deal of our event season, the Alpha Testers of our Obstacle Innovation Lab put their daredevil reputations on the line testing our new obstacles for the very first time.
Last week, we got around. Now get your mind out of the mud because we’re talking about the worldwide media fanfare surrounding our new obstacles. Here are five of hundreds of outlets that decided that our big news was their big news in one short week.
They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection. Well we have a message for They: Oops. For 2015, our course designers have made some awesome updates to our signature Tough Mudder obstacles.
Here are some new-and-improved challenges you’ll encounter in 2015.
1. It’ll be here before you know it.
Mudder season kicks off in just a few weeks on March 7th with Tough Mudder Gulf Coast. Lucky for you, however, there’s still plenty of time to get on a training regimen to prepare for a Tough Mudder event near you before the coming price increases at midnight on January 29.
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.
