Tough Mudder!

***Note: This event is NOT full, people are on the waiting list because they haven't officially registered yet.

Well, I unexpectedly agreed to do Tough Mudder... thanks David :-/

Would you like to crawl through muddy tunnels and scale 12-foot walls? I'm not sure why this is a good idea, but there's only one way to find out. Here is some general info:

http://toughmudder.com/

I'd like find help to prepare in the months leading up to this, and recruit a team. If you are good-to-go, that's fine. It will take much training before I'm fit enough. I need to work on upper-body strength, endurance, wall-climbing skills, etc... If you have any ideas about how to practice, send them our way.

This obstacle course is designed to be a challenge, not a race. The motto is 'no mudder left behind'. I read that the average percentage of participants who finish a Tough Mudder challenge is 78%. Our goal is 100%!

There will be an event in the Detroit area on June 29th and 30th, 2013. I've been informed that Sunday is a LOT muddier and tougher to run. Naturally I don't want to run the less-tough/less-muddy version of this event, so I signed up for Sunday morning.

Accepting the Tough Mudder pact:

Please add yourself to the waiting list if you're interested in participating. I'll put you on here after you sign up through the Tough Mudder site. We each get a $15 team discount (refunded later) if 21 people sign up.

(FYI, this event is cross-posted on MAC: http://www.meetup.com/MI-adventurers/events/98130072/ )

    Hi!
    I signed up on a different team a while back, however was wondering if anyone is driving there for a 9:00 am start time on Sunday that myself and one teammate can carpool with?
    Thanks!
    Lindsey

    June 28, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      Would you both like to run it with us? Our team start time is 9:40 am but I plan to be there much earlier. Everyone says it's ok if you are late. They'll still let you run. A bunch of people are staying at my place in Tecumseh tomorrow evening to get an early start. Others are driving out in the morning. You're welcome either way. This is the best place to arrange carpooling and meeting details, let me know if you're not on fb: http://www.facebook.c...­

      June 28, 2013

  • Jim S

    question: the race was originally set for 1030 i believe, it still says 10, my personal start time was just given to me as 1020, but i remember you saying recently that it's something like 940? and i just read from their official site that a team can race later, but people can't race earlier if people running together all have different times. will that be a problem for me? is there a reason we're running before 10?

    June 27, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      We originally picked 10:00 am for the team, but TM changed us to 9:40 am. We'll just get there way early and wait until everyone is ready to go.

      June 27, 2013

  • Dylan C.

    FYI, our start time is 9:40 am. I'm told it can be pretty hectic and you should arrive 1.5 hours early. Allowing time to park, get signed in and round up the team, I plan to leave from Tecumseh at 7:40 am.

    If you're going directly to MIS, don't bother trying to comment here if you get lost:
    "Meetup will be down for maintenance Sunday June 30th from 6:00 - 9:30 AM EST."

    June 27, 2013

  • Dylan C.

    FYI: Spectator tickets are $40 (cash-only) onsite, but only $20 online until Friday at noon.

    You can get free entry and parking if you sign up as a volunteer:

    Use volunteer code 'supporter1' in the application form.

    I sent an e-mail to everyone about where to meet and other details. Please see this group if you missed it:

    i would be happy to camp at your house. and we should all carpool from there in as few cars as possible. what a great idea. my car holds five.

  • Ryan C.

    Anyone have plans to camp close day before?

    June 12, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      Everyone is welcome to camp in my backyard or sleep on the floor Saturday night. MIS is about an hour from Ann Arbor but it is only 30 minutes from Tecumseh. I'll put details here: http://www.facebook.c...­

    Hey guys, check out the link below to get a team shirt! Having a team shirt makes it much easier to keep track of everyone in your group, and you get to show it off for the rest of the summer!

      Sunday night I'm closing the order! We have our minimum order#, so be sure you put in for one before Sunday!

      May 30, 2013

  • Eric H.

    We've discussed doing teams, so I started a google doc with the outline for the different teams;

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ago6P87f_bzRdDFud1pDbkttRUpuaFBvM1pqdjEzMHc&usp=sharing

    I also included a list of who is currently getting the "Adventure Club Tough Mudder" shirts. A couple more and we can get the deal!

    May 23, 2013

    • Alejandra

      I signed up for the T-shirt. I'll go to sand vb tomorrow and planning to attend "the run" on Sunday

      1 · May 29, 2013

    • Alejandra

      Also could you include me with Dylan's team?

      May 29, 2013

  • Dylan C.

    FYI, I doesn’t matter if the TM website thinks you’re on our team or not. Anyone in this club who is already registered for TM on Sunday morning is welcome to put on a red shirt and join us. We’ll split into subgroups and put you in one.

      Please join us! See the sign up info above. If you're in Troy, you should also join Michigan Adventures Club and Metro Detroit Athletes for training. Ann Arbor folks should also join the Ann Arbor Turbos.

    Hey question-- what's the general feeling toward having non-Adventurers join the team? There are a few friends I have from outside of Michigan that I think would love this, but figured I'd get the opinion of the group before dragging them along.

    November 4, 2012

    • Amanda

      I'd do my best to get them here before the race, but I'm from Connecticut by way of Virginia, and my athletic friends are generally in one of those two places-- might not be possible. :-)

      November 4, 2012

    • Dylan C.

      No objection here if they're confident about being able to complete the course.

    So just to double check-- we should sign up for Sunday to be on this team? Don't want to pay and then find out I'm on my own!

    November 3, 2012

    • Amanda

      Thanks, I should be registered for the team now! My internet was being weird about it, so if you as the team captain get an oddly half-finished registration message, sorry.

      November 3, 2012

    • Dylan C.

      You can still be on this team if you signed up as individuals.

      November 3, 2012

  • Eric H.

    I don't know if you guys created a team through the tough mudder site or if you were just planning on meeting up at the event, but I recommend getting team t-shirts to help distinguish your teammates.

    November 3, 2012

    • Dylan C.

      Team name is above, we were talking about changing it... if we don't, these shirts could work.

      Sign me up! You should be receiving my registration info shortly. (I don't know how long it takes for them to process my info). The good news is that I got 50% off Sunday for doing both days! Score!

  • Eric H.

    Scott talked me into it...
