VANCOUVER AT WHISTLER OLYMPIC PARK – SAT JUNE 23 & SUN 24, 2012
Tough mudder as described by them,
"Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $2 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days."
Vibram Five Fingers in wilderness? Does it protect against branches and sharp objects? lool woulnd't suggest those out there.
Actually they're not bad for hiking even over sharp objects, you would be surprised. A lot of people do wear them for hiking, you can search the inter webs. The soles are very tough, you'd have to stab it pretty hard with a knife to puncture it.
I think i am going to wear boots. The run will suck in them but climbing, jumping and landing, going through mud will give me the extra support I need. I am not sure though, I am going to look into this some more.
^^its a great cause but so poorly organized. did it last year and our group will never do it again. up til last year we did the 24hr relay at swanguard. were gonna be doing that again this year. SO MUCH FUN!
I signed up, not much training tho
Ran the BMO half to get an idea of how far 10 miles is....its fucking FAR. Simply moving 10 miles is tough enough let alone the obstacles. I get back from Europe the previous sunday so I will try to get some running and lifting in before that.
Did anyone buy gloves for this? It seems like everyone wears them but I can't figure out what type to buy (UA Tough mudder ones don't seem to be in Canada).
