Mud runs, oh how I love them... They are incredibly challenging, fun and rewarding at the same time. Vermont's Tough Mudder is considered the toughest version of all the races because of the significant incline they throw at you during the course. Just imagine running up and down "black" ski courses multiple times... After talking to some fellow mud runners after New England, there is a clear difference because the terrain is more challenging. Just to give you an idea of what it was like, here's a recap from the official email... Tough Mudder Vermont was the largest athletic event in Vermont history. 14,000 participants took on 10 miles and over 25 obstacles, with 13,747 feet of elevation change and 7,000 feet of climbing. Click here to read a review on this race. With that being said, this gives me a clear goal to shoot for, and I'm pretty determined to get back to this fitness level...

Just remember we'll be doing this as a TEAM! This race is all about comraderie and teamwork so no one will be left behind, finishing the race is the goal. If you will be joining us, our team name is NYC HOAGies. (The team with the logo)

Site Info:

Tough Mudder is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing "endurance" road race. It’s Ironman meets Burning Man, and it is coming to a city near you. Our 7-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Forget finish times. Simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honor.

Tough Mudder is about experiencing a true sense of camaraderie that, sadly, is rarely seen outside of the military these days. To get over some of our obstacles you will need the help of others – they are simply too much for one man to tackle alone. Tough Mudders, unlike some other types of endurance runners, are team players; they help out other Tough Mudders. We want everyone to compete, but being a Tough Mudder is also about making sure no man is left behind, not worrying about your finish time.

All Tough Mudder sponsorship proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Yep, your money goes to a great cause!

WARNING: A Tough Mudder is 3-4 times longer and much tougher than a typical mud run such as Warrior Dash. Only 78% of participants at our last event in New Jersey finished. Only those in reasonable physical condition should enter.

Tough Mudder FAQs

Is Tough Mudder a race?

Tough Mudder is not a race. It is supposed to be a personal challenge – the goal is simply to complete the course. This is why we do not time people and why we try to avoid using the word ‘race’ when describing our events. We really want all Tough Mudders to embrace this philosophy, and that is why we have them sign the Tough Mudder pledge..

Is Tough Mudder the same as other events out there like Muddy Buddy or Warrior Dash?

No. Muddy Buddy and Warrior Dash are both great events and really fun days out – but Tough Mudder is a very different proposition. Our events are three times as long, take place in hostile environments, often at altitude, and whatever the level of your fitness they are a significant physical and mental challenge. Completing a Tough Mudder requires camaraderie and a degree of toughness that other mud-runs will not even begin to test.

    Tania - I'll be your pimp so bring your camera. I only have a point and shoot so your camera will get better shots. Is everyone in this group starting at the same time with Manny?

    I'll be happy to take pictures. I'll email you my cell #. I'll be getting up there Friday night and my friends start time is 9:45 on Saturday so I'll be there early. Just so you know they are charging for parking ($20 but I think it might be $10 now since a lot of people complained). I don't know where you are staying in the valley but there is a free shuttle called the Moover. Schedule can be found here: http://www.moover.com/index.php?updates

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
