Tough Mudder draws Georgia triathletes, adventurers

Monday, March 14, 2011

It’s touted as “probably the toughest event on the planet,” and many of those who ran the 12.8 mile obstacle course this weekend in Polk County would likely agree.

Watching participants cross the finish line, the Tough Mudder stands up to its name. Runners came through the final obstacles caked in Georgia red clay with simultaneous exclamations of joy and exhaustion.

The course is chock-full of hills and obstacles, like tunnels that dump participants into icy water that leaves limbs frozen and numb, and traversing muddy water-filled pits in a smoke filled barn. And that’s just in the first few miles.
