Squaw Valley will be hosting the Tough Mudder event from September 17 and 18.
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 location near you. Our 10-12 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 has raised over one million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.
WARNING: Tough Mudder is 3-4 times longer and MUCH TOUGHER than a typical mud run such as Warrior Dash. On average, only 78% of participants finish a Tough Mudder event. Only those in strong physical condition should enter.
After you finish the course, grab a beer and hang out with your fellow mudders. There’ll be a band and lots of food for sale.
Tough Mudder will also be offering tattoos of our bad-ass logo to all finishers who truly want to commemorate their epic achievement. They are on a first come, first serve basis and everyone who gets a tattoo will be given free entry into the Tough Mudder event of their choice. Be sure to customize it by having the event date and location put on–keep adding as you go to record all your epic Mudder adventures.
No, there are no showers. Yes, there will be firemen with a hose.
