p.1 #1 · Go Mudders


In the early twilight in the Sierra foothills with the setting moon...


The silence was broken by, the echos of "Go Mudders!"

This young man was getting clipped for the Tough Mudder Event.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.
There were tough women there but perhaps vanity precluded clipping... :wink
They are released in waves. Pile them into a pen and open then blow a whistle....

These events are well attended . They had 14,000 to 16,000 for the two day event. the first hurdles

Some really get into it

Is she tough... yep

There were angels there with happy faces

Over barbed wire

Mud


Through tubes

Diving

Butt View

Front view

Differences

These wires are supplied by 10,000volts, they touch you they sting

Some faces





Look at the joy expressed



The finishers get a "Doo Rag"

Then a self service shower


This was my centerfold..

They were all good sports

nicely documented...a friend of mine just did one, and does the Warrior Dashes and a couple other crazy events like this...I want to go shoot one someday...were you there to cover it, or just as a spectator with a camera?

Spectator with cam, Travis; which was better. Loose accessible course (10-12 miles).

The pros I saw stayed at one place just kept shooting snapshots for resale

No fire Chris, I'm guessing potential liability

I knew no one but was proud for all; a great display of personal best (I think I better get on a diet)

Thanks for looking in guys

Probably a good thing they write the number on their foreheads. Would be no other way to ID them

Personally, these pix bring back memories of something called boot camp where there were no "do rags" just screaming DI's.

Ah, not a sport for me. Nice shots though. Really love the "smiling angels" though they look more like butterflies or bees to me. And what could possibly be sexier than your last shot??

Bootcamp? ... yup.

Most of the team were current or recent military, yelling like DI's.

Pretty cool event

The Bay Area was in the midst of a "spare the air" day (actually three in a row). No fires, gas mowers, blah blah. Not to mention this is the peak fire season. I'm not surprised by the absence of fire.

Nice snaps!
