  • Tough Mudder & Warrior Dash

    Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder... I think Tough Mudder wins in toughness.

    Has anyone been to one of these events? If you have never heard of them then checkout their facebook fan page and watch the 46 second video: Tough Mudder - Intro | Facebook

    It's insane. Warrior Dash is 3 miles... tough mudder is 10!

    I want to attend one of these events but would like to know your experience first!

    i'm doing the new england warrior dash in a couple weeks, then the spartan race in august...i'm hoping to get signed up for the tough mudder when it's in new england again and i happen to have the money. even the early bird registration is a little pricey for that race.

      I got my eye set on tough mudder next year. tough mudder out here in the east is usually on a ski slope/mountain so not only is it 10 miles it has a lot of incline/decline variance to it as well.

        I'm looking at the Tough Mudder when it comes here in December. Maybe I'll be in shape enough that it won't kill me by then

          Next time it's in PA is 2012, guess I'll have to check that bad boy out then! Hope to do a Warrior Dash before then..

            I'm doing Warrior Dash in NH on 6/25... it sounds to be "fun". Totally don't think I'm ready, but hey... just gotta finish, and live, right?

            From what the website says the training is pretty easy. Go outside, run until you can't. Next day, run until you can't. Next day, etc. etc.

              Good luck to you all! I was going to go to the warrior dash in Michigan this year but am now going to Boarfest instead

                I've done Rugged Maniac and Warrior Dash, both of them were loads of fun and semi-challenging if you go for a good time. I'm training for the Tough Mudder in October which will be far, far harder than either of the latter races. The one thing I love about Tough Mudder is it's not even officially timed, the focus is on teamwork and getting as many people to just finish the race as possible. So pumped to get my orange headband!

                    I did the MS Mud Run in Jacksonville - it was a 10K. Lots of upper body stuff, some of which can be done with teamwork. Had what seemed to be a mile of mud to walk through. One of my teammates had an injured knee, so we walked most of it. It was fun!

                      Oh! The Tough Mudder is a team game? I had no idea! And the Warrior Dash is individual correct?

                        I'd like to do TM, but their FB page pissed me off a few months ago so I've written them off until my panties unbunch themselves :roll: Signed up to do my first WD in a couple months...looking forward to a semi-challenging, really fun event!

                          I did the Warrior Dash in Maryland last month. It was awesome. Over 8,000 participated that Saturday. I kicked ass as well

                            Since I have these links to their info pages handy already:

                            Muddy Buddy (2 people, 1 bike, 6-7 miles, 5 obstacles)

                            Warrior Dash (Looks like timed race in age groups with obstacles)

                            Tough Mudder (Not a race, it's a personal challenge event. Individual or teams signup, lots of obstacles.)

                              I'm doing the TN Warrior Dash in September. For me it will be a test, but I've got a few friends that will be there also, so maybe they will "coach" me thru.
