TOUGH MUDDER WHISTLER 2012

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."

Vancouver at Whistler Olympic Park

Any of you guys doing this? Would love to train for something like this, but I don't know anyone else who would even be interested


Looks like a good place to wear my Vibram Five Fingers.

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.

Surprised more people aren't interested.

ooo i might try this out looks fun

and i don't think the vibram shoes would do so good in the swamp stomp "slosh your way through waist-deep sludge without losing your shoes in the process"

and at the "Kinky Tunnels" challenge

i'll try to get some friends to sign up too

110 bucks ...

Another Warrior Dash - bleh, I guess it's one of those interesting things to try for the first time for the experience.

I'll stick to the grouse grind.

This is right around the corner and I just signed up. I have done the warrior dash and it is a piece of cake. From what I have seen in the videos I think this will be a real challenge.

Grouse grind???? Please... this will be like that carrying a log and climbing over 12ft walls!

Is there anyone else on RS doing this?

Jared

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).

Yeah I have heard that too, but I did hear these were good and make sense bc they are just basically rubber:
