Tough Mountain Challenge 2012
Start: Saturday, July 21, 2012 @ 10:00 AM (EDT)
Newry , ME 04261
The Tough Mountain Challenge tackles alpine terrain and throws in manmade challenges to mix things up a bit. It?s just 5k in length, but when you?re running up a mountain under an arsenal of snowguns pounding you with water or scrambling through a ravine the event lives up to its name. In the Tough Mountain Challenge, it?s not about whether you finish first or last ? it?s about testing yourself and pushing your limits, then celebrating your accomplishment with the rest of the field.
Mud runs, military-style obstacle courses and endurance races are everywhere. If you want to climb over some walls, slog through mud, or pound out 10 miles on foot, there are plenty of events out there to do just that. If you want to suffer for 24 hours or risk possible death, you can find those events too. But if you?re looking for something different ? a chance to push your limits both physically and mentally and still have fun ? welcome to the Tough Mountain Challenge. Belt buckles are awarded to the top three finishers in each category, and within the Solo category at male and female divisions. An additional prize will be awarded to the best costume.New this year, competitors will be choosing their heat times which begin at 10am on Saturday. Each heat is limited to 100 competitors so sign up early! There is also a reward for signing up early! Entry fees will increase as we get closer to the event so do not delay, sign up today!
