I've been looking at these two for quite a while now...... Now which one is tougher? Tough Guy seems to be around for longer and Tough Mudder.....shall we say is American.
Who has taken part in both? What did you enjoy about them?
High & Lows
I heard Tough Mudder is for sissies
& Tough Guy is for?
try this link its a write up on both events. Personally I think tough guy is the hardest/ best the course is permenant and they add to it every year.
look at the thread "what is the toughest obstacle race" I don't know about Tough Guy
Thanks S R and Lingster
I have done both. Tough Guy is harder. Much harder. I could go on for a while as to exactly why - but my recommendation is - go up and try it for yourself! It WILL be painful.
looking forward 2 trieing both started 10k runs last year with obstacles n look 4 local events weekly even if its a 10k off road run,buzzing for these events good fitness and amazeing fun,would like events with camping and a good knees up after if any1 knows of any
+1 for Tough Guy. Only done the winter one. For me it wasn't the phyiscally tough so much as the mental tough that was more important. The summer one won't have snow, or inch thick ice......
I broke my leg doing the winter Tough Guy but would still do it again! Was having a great time up until that point, got halfway round and was gutted I had to Go For It!
Sorry.....had to stop. Go for it!
I did tough guy with my son and watched as they pulled people off the course with hypothermia, followed by an air ambulance for the guy who was zapped in the torture chamber and landed face down in the water..... My son was blue, screaming with pain and I had to help him undress and get warm. I only survived because i had neoprene and was short enough to crawl rather than shimmy through the tunnels/ water/ nets.
He did tough mudder recently and I did not see a single person drop out.
I think Tough Mudder exists just so that those who've done Tough Guy can laugh at people in the pub who claim Tough Mudder is 'hard'. If you're going to do something like this, do the real deal, and get to Tough Guy.
Xc and Fell racing, a lot cheaper
Tough Mudder actually have the temerity to claim that their little mud race has a case for being the toughest endurance event on the planet!
They make this manifestly absurd claim, interspersed with the odd disrespectful comment about marathon runners.
They are a joke.
Really? Toughest endurance event on the planet? WTF are these people on? Was it designed for people who struggle with stairs or something?
both far too easy for me.
