This is why you don't want to wear your armor to a Tough Mudder event hahaha!

Why perfect weathering, it will look as if you just crawled through the mud.

I was already planning on running this year, and if I don't have my kit finished by then, well then I just fail at life. Thaxos, the Wisconsintough mudder is the weekend of september 7th, I know it's a couple weeks after wizard world, but it's probably the closest for you.

so it has come to my attention that the wounded warrior project doesnt accept charity money from just anyone... however the tough mudder is a funder for them. now several in Taakure Clan plan on undertaking this challenge sometime next year. and we want to officially invite any and all mercs to undertake this challenge with us (either at the same event as us, or across the us.)


THIS IS 100% WRONG. tough mudder does not donate to WWP!!!! I have been saying this for years, on there site if you read the fine print its says those who raise money for WWP will get a discount on their race ticket. NONE of the proceeds from a regular entry go into WWP. I MEAN NONE!!!! This is a touchy subject for me, cause I ran a tough mudder with a large group of people and the tickets were around $150 and to find out non of it went to WWP. Not to mention the race was crowded (I had to wait 45mins at one obstacle) and they don't time you. When you look at it's one huge money trap!

It seems that you raise money for WWP outside of the event and then run the event.  It's like when people do 5K's for cancer or something of that sort.  Its like any other event.  The entry that you pay is for the setup and venue along with anything that you might get to commemorate your run.  The WWP donations is what the runners get friends and family to donate to show support for your run and that is donated.

its still the fact the advertise it as if a portion of your entry fee goes toward WWP. Which is not the case, plus the race is around 175 to run so your telling me they cant donate 5% of that entry for WWP. Lets do some math really quick the race I ran had an easy 5000 people, so they collected around 875000 dollors, that's just the entry fees!!! 5% of that is 43750, well over the average year pay of a military member. It's a greed thing I have a problem with they try to sway you with illusion of mass donation to the WWP; when in truth your entry fee is lining the pockets of someone else.

And as far as the race it self goes. The course its self is extremely easy (if you are a runner), I worked out after the race. I waited for 45 minutes at an obstacle because they allow people to try again and again to complete it, unlike a Spartan race where if you fail you pay with a 30 burpee penalty. AND they don't time your race, (they say its not a race its a challenge) I call it too lazy for shoe trackers. Tough mudder left with a bad taste in my mouth. I have ran multiple obstacle course races TM, warrior dash, Spartan races, zombie runs you name it I've ran it probably. My favorite by far is the Blue mountain Spartan race, its only 4 miles but its the hardest race I've ever ran. Heed my words people!

^ Agreed on the ease of the race. Spartan was tougher.
