  • This location is shown only to members

Ever wanted to be a Tough Mudder but not quite ready yet?  Well, here's your chance to see first hand of what it would be like... COME and join me volunteer for the Tri-State Tough Mudder event. To register:  http://toughmudder.com/mudder-volunteer-program/

I'm signed up for Saturday at 11AM - 6PM Shift, just FYI

Probably the toughest event on the planet

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.  With the most innovative courses, 1,000,000 inspiring participants worldwide to date, and more than $5 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world. http://toughmudder.com/

Why join “Probably the Best Team on the Planet” and become a volunteer? Because it’s like being courtside at an NBA game, except that LeBron is getting shocked by 10,000 volts of electricity. Our volunteers, otherwise known as our MVPs, help make Tough Mudder “Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet.”

 

Tough Mudder events are hardcore obstacle courses designed to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses, over one million inspiring participants worldwide to date, and more than $5 million raised for the Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world. But Tough Mudder is more than an event; it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days.

    Hi Dana,

    I just checked, registrations are close for both days, however if you want, you can come as a spectator, I think it's $20 dollars.

    Update: I just came to Sports Authority just so they can tell me that for Volunteers Sat can pick up the tshirt on the day off, same for volunteers on Sun. So needless to say, as per TM, we can pick up the tees on Sat or Sun whichever day you are signed up for.

    Dear Team,

    I'm planning on arriving early, and if we can plan to meet up by the registration area, around 10:30ish. I've asked if we can all volunteer together as a group, they said they might have to split us up, but we can pair up.
    Here is my number, please text me on Saturday[masked]

    October 10, 2013

  • Janet

    Just an FYI, the email from TM came in this evening, if you haven't received it, you can private message me with your email and I'll forward it to you.

      Janet was I suppose to receive something in the mail? Call me tonight if you can.

      October 9, 2013

    • Janet

      Hi Lina, TM sent an email last week noting that we were suppose to receive another email today, I have NOT received anything on my email. However, I went ahead and called the Sports Authority in NY located in 51st and they confirmed for tomorrow. The pre-packet are not listed on the website, I tried a few Sports Authority in NJ but no luck. I've emailed TM to advise on the location for pre-packet pick up for the NJ location on Friday. I'll find out for more details. :) I'll keep you posted once I have more details.

  • Kaaron

    I would definitely need a ride or I will have to cancel. I signed up for Saturday, Oct. 12, 11-6. I just checked -- by public transportation it's 4-hours-and-51-minutes each direction which is just too much traveling time.

    August 28, 2013

  • Kaaron

    I need a ride as well. I also live in Queens but would be happy to meet in Queens, Brooklyn or Manhattan and pay my share of gas and tolls.

    August 28, 2013

  • Lina N.

    I signed on for Saturday 11- to 6pm see you there. I live in Jersey City, NJ. So, if anyone needs a ride inbox me.

    Would love to volunteer - is there carpooling? I am coming from Queens/Manhattan
