The Tough Mudder is billed as "the toughest event on the planet." It is a more extreme example of the trend of muddy assault courses. The 11-mile course includes greased monkey bars, dangling live power lines and masses of mud. Tough Mudder events are hard-core runs designed by British Special Forces to test all-around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie.
