Tough Mudder in Beaver Creek for a second year, June 9 - 10, 2012
Not for the faint of heart, Tough Mudder at Beaver Creek puts athletes of all levels to the ultimate test, and Beaver Creek takes it a step further with a start elevation of 8,100 feet. Described as a mix of Ironman meets Burning Man, Tough Mudder tests competitors' all-around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. The 10+-mile obstacle course is complete with 22 military-style challenges including electric shocks, ice-cold plunges, eight-foot walls, barbed-wire crawls, 100-foot long mud pits and the patented FireWalker gauntlet of flames. Designed by British Special Forces, Tough Mudder is recognized as the most difficult mud-run on the circuit and simply completing the course is a badge of honor as not everyone will be able to cross the finish line.
