What we're about

Gateway Endurance is about more than hiking. This group is about physical activity. If there is an event that pertains to the indoors or outdoors that has you up and moving then that is what we are going for. We will never have anything close to Happy Hour socials.

The Endurance part of it is to challenge ourselves and see how far we can go before dropping to the ground. :D Sometimes there will be postings for up to 3 events in 1 day. This would be making up our own mini triathlon. Oh, yeah!! Example: Hiking, Biking, and Kayaking. The idea is to sign up for all 3 events and have a fun filled day! In any event......more than 1 activity in a day, can only be done, depending on how much daylight we have. And yes, we will be having hikes of 14 miles minimum if that is the only posting! I really like 20+ milers.

Special Note: Our long hikes of more than 20 miles require some amount of coordination, for transportation, supply drops, etc. Therefore, signing up for a hike is a commitment - late drops could cause the event to be cancelled. These will be strenuous events. We'll be moving fast and hard. So, no kids, no dogs, no +1.

Let's Get Dirty!! Tough Mudder CLASSIC!! You know you want to.....

Cedar Lake Cellars

Can you have any more fun in 10 miles with 25 obstacles? Yes! Include Mudd!

This is the Show Me State, so we decided to do just that with the new breed of badass that is Tough Mudder Classic Missouri. Come out to Cedar Lake Cellars to see how we took 10 miles and kicked it up about a thousand notches. It’s the best place to let loose and go wild while crushing a course with obstacles built specifically for your best weekend of the season.

With one 8-10 mile loop of mud-soaked mayhem loaded with 25 best-in-class obstacles on Every. Single. Course. That’s right - double-digit innovation for maximum limit-testing. This is your chance to get outside your comfort zone, discover what you’re made of, and cross that finish line stronger than you started.

This event all starts and ends in Mudder Village with killer live entertainment, epic games and challenges, authentic local food, and a never ending-supply of Mudder Nation camaraderie. After you’re done crushing the course, the good times keep rolling with a frosty cold finisher beer and your new best friends from course.

To sign up go to this site, scroll down the page until you see the event as Missouri April 30 & May 1, 2022. Click that and continue to select Missouri for April 30th.

We will be in the 10:00 - 10:45 time slot. I tried to save $10 and more by not signing up for earlier times. Additionally, the Meetup time listed is so that we all get there, process in, and can meet before the mudder start line. :)

Just dive in for the commitment next year. Prices go up after July 31st!!

Registration this year will have parking and bag drop.

Let's get muddy!! Hope to see you there!
