Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Mud, Sweat and Tears... Are you Tough Enough?

0 0
Tough Mudder is the obstacle course that is taking the nation by craze - but this is no regular obstacle course. Designed by Special Forces the 12 mile course isn't for the faint hearted.

Designed and created by two British Harvard Business School post graduates Tough Mudder tests mental as well as physical strength. The obstacles often play on common human fears, such as fire, water, electricity and heights. The main principle of the Tough Mudder revolves around teamwork. The Tough Mudder organization values camaraderie throughout the course, designing obstacles that encourage group participation. Participants must commit to helping others complete the course, putting teammates before themselves, and overcoming fears. An average 78% of entrants successfully complete the course.

Even the strongest athletes struggle through a Tough Mudder course, which might require competitors to crawl through mud and under barbed wire or climb up a 25-foot scaffold, latch onto a fireman’s pole or slide through a giant ring of fire and into a tank of water.

The first Tough Mudder challenge was held in the United States in 2010. To date, more than 1.3 million people worldwide have participated in Tough Mudder events.
