I'm from Scotland and did it last month. I'd tried a few half marathons and 10k's but wanted to try something different... And different it was. Great atmosphere, very hard, but glad I did it. I trained for about 6 months leading upto it. Was a good thing to shed the Uni-finals weight.
Would recommend it to anyone.

Looks like an excuse to roll in the mud and give you something to brag about. Only hard thing looks like the QP and people help you do that. I'm sure it' not easy, but I would rather do this than run a marathon.

Are you guys a couple or what? You two are obviously little pansy's if you think a running race is extreme.

Why don't you post a vid of some EXTREME cross country running wipe-outs.

I couldn't find a good wipe-out montage but I did find this Extreme race highlight.
If your @ all squeamish, you might want to skip this one!!!

Fuck I got goose bumps just from watching the Extremeness.

Grow some balls for fuck sakes, your little insults don't mean shit to me.

So get the fuck off your high horse and let people who are not gym coaches enjoy their accomplishment and success of completing one of the toughest 10 mile races ever created.
No high horse here guy I stated facts and gave my opinion based off of what I do. If you read what I said in previous posts I mentioned that I did realize people on here had done this. I also mentioned the word "personally" before I said I could do it. Then I mentioned that I work at a gym as a PT part time. What would you have me say!? Im a horrible fuckin trainer and toughmudder was the hardest activity I've ever done?. No!, Because its not! Notice how I've not once bragged about my workouts?, My body, My strength the fact that I Have done triathlons. Your trying to turn this into a dick measuring when it looks like your the insecure one here proclaiming me to be OP and bringing up Ultramarathoners like your one of them. In my original post I referred to the fact that IMO SNOWBOARDING REQUIRES MORE "CONDITIONING/ATHLETICISM". Don't tell me Toughmudder is hard if you have been outside at 8am at 11000 elevation to get 1st chair when its 5 degreeze out and everyone is inside with a blanket.

Now you wanna mention this "Ultra marathoners are nucking futs, and I can guarantee that nobody on the site, especially cross fit gugu OP can get through 1/2 of the leadville race"

You would think that if I did train people who pay $500 a month, I could train my self to "Run/jog" for an extended period of time. Sounds to me like your insecure and you want a pat on the back for trying. Either way I could give a 2 fucks man. Come to Phoenix you'll die in the conditions I work out in. Wanna compare shit? Lets. Try Running 3 miles to Echo trail on Camelback mountain then hiking the shit in 40 minutes. Try waking up on a saturday morning and not stuffing your face. Go outside put 90 pounds on a sled tied to your back and sprint a football field Endzone to Endzone, Lunge back then Farmer carry 90 pound back. Oh and did I mention I do this during the summer in phoenix? Ya know when all you pussy's are crying its 80-90 outside I'm fucking working my ass of when its 105 at 10 am. That 3 mile run I refered to? Yeah I start it at 5am when its 90-95 out, I finish up at 8 right when it hits 100-105. But hey your right, running 10 miles is hard shit there is no way I could train myself for that. Lol

So according to your own words it takes you three hours to run three miles?

I am certainly not trying to throw mud here, it was probably just a typo.

Take yourself to higher places.

well I don't really time myself running i just know i can leave my car after warming up at 5. run a couple blocks down to the sanctuary, back. Do some lat pullups under the ramada at the base. Make it to the top in 40 minutes do some burpies then be down in 30-40 minutes depending on ppl coming up. After all this its usually around 730-8. Ive never really been concerned with running miles in a set time. If im doing this my HR needs to stay at a certain pace that's what i follow when running long distance. My boss however is a ranger and runs 3 miles in under 18. Why im required to do stupid shit

Are you seriously trying to say races aren't hard?

No, not sayin' that @ all.

But I did watch a marathon yesterday for a bit while I was @ McDonalds, I didn't see anything EXTREME in it, & I didn't think the super skinny guys running it were extreme either.

Tough mudder is hard. I found it harder than a half marathon. Anyone with a decent level of fitness could finish. But I managed to maintain a decent pace and do it in just over 2 and a half hours. Has anyone ran a marathon to compare? And anyone who hasn't done either and has watched videos should shut up and congratulate anyone who has. These are proper ordeals for your body and anyone who's come out on the good end has done well.

Also... Running a tough mudder or anything doesn't make you tough. If you claim to be tough... chances are you aren't. It's the quiet ones who just push on who tend to be the hard (tough) ones.
