Tough Mudder Pennsylvania 2012
April 28, 2012. Already 54% sold so get going. Feel free to join my team with or without any of your own friends.
Here's a link to join the team.
Fania Mudding Co.
roofs is the password.
I've done 2 Tough Mudders and 1 Goruck Challenge to date, and am doing the NJ event again in a few weeks so you'll be with pros :usa:
The teamwork and camaraderie I saw at this event and as you'll see in the photos was unlike anything I'd seen before.
More info about the event can be found here ( http://toughmudder.com/events/tri-st...11-course-map/ ), but it is modeled after British Special Forces training by actual members of the special forces, with about 20 obstacles in 12 miles. Of course they added a few others in between some stretches of running so that we wouldn't be let down. About 25% didn't finish the event at all, and about 50% skipped at least one obstacle - The water obstacles were among the most popular to be skipped since the water was 37 degrees. It was by far the most fun I've ever had and I already created a team for the next event in April at Bear Mountain if anyone wants to join in on the fun, or watch the madness.
Our event alone raised just over $300,000 for the Wounded Warriors fund after costs. Numerous members of the armed forces participated or were otherwise present at the events (if you look, there's Marine's pushing anyone off the platform who was too scared to jump into the lake). If anyone would like to donate to the cause, here is the link to donate to Wounded Warriors (Neither my team nor myself gets anything for getting people to donate. The money raised goes straight to the Wounded Warriors Fund.)
This is how all the start groups began the competition, after the Tough Mudder pledge and the national anthem. This happened every 20 minutes.
