Put your strength, stamina and inner determination to the ultimate test. Tough Mudder, the 12-mile endurance challenge is arriving to the Valley on Saturday, February 23 and Sunday, February 24.
Designed by the British Special Forces, the 20 military-style obstacles like the “Funky Monkey,” a trek across greased monkey bars; “Fire Walker,” a run through 4-foot-high flames; and “Electroshook Therapy,” a gauntlet of 10,000-volt-charged dangling wires, will keep your adrenaline running.
