It’s rare to find someone who hasn’t heard of Tough Mudder nowadays.

The event has taken the world by storm in recent years, blossoming to a total of 55 events in 2014.

Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test all-around strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit.

As author Robert A. Sadowski said in the premiere issue of SURVIVOR’S EDGE:

“Tough Mudder is not so much a who or a where, but a mindset. In the basest terms, it is a short marathon run through a diabolically difficult obstacle course that seems to have been dreamt up by the Marquis de Sade and R. Lee Ermey. Mud plays a major role in these 10 to 12 mile runs, with anywhere from 20 to 25 military-style obstacles in between to separate, as they say, the men from the boys and women from the girls.”
