Army of Fun

Think you’re tough? Tough enough to run 12.5 miles in three hours? Tough enough to run 12.5 miles in three hours while overcoming almost 30 obstacles in a course designed by British Special Forces °™ the same guys who toughened up Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls?

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10 to 12 mile obstacle courses designed to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. For 2012, Tough Mudder Arizona will be held at Mesa Proving Grounds and will feature a bevy of new obstacles to overcome, including a pit of mud covered by barbed wire, a field of rolling hay bales, several sheer walls, and a web of hanging wires that deliver an electric shock. Still think you’re tough enough?
