Tough Mudder Toronto 2012, Sunday, 9:30 AM. The first start wave of the day had just gone. I already began making my way to photograph one of the first obstacles when I saw that some stragglers were just making their way across the start line. It was this couple right here. Smiles on, taking their time.
One of the first obstacles on the course was Arctic Enema, a container filled with ice water with a barrier in the middle, forcing participants to fully submerge themselves to get across. I photographed the first wave going through the obstacle and stuck around, waiting for my couple. View full post »
This weekend I photographed Tough Mudder Toronto, only the second Tough Mudder to be held in Canada (the first was Tough Mudder Vancouver in June 2012). It was also the largest Tough Mudder to date, with over 17,000 participants running on Saturday alone. The full sets can be found on the Tough Mudder Facebook Page, but here are a few of my favorites from the weekend.View full post »
Tough Mudder SoCal 2012 #2 took place over two relentlessly sunny, warm days last weekend. The site was the Snow Valley Mountain Resort in the heart of the San Bernadino National Forest. The altitude was higher and the terrain over the 10-mile course much steeper than the first Southern California Tough Mudder of this year which took place in Temecula. Here are some highlights from the event.

The first ever Canadian installment of the Tough Mudder event series was held at Whistler Olympic Park (site of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games), 2 hours north of Vancouver, this past weekend. Nearly 15,000 participants ran the 11-mile course on Saturday alone. The scenery was absolutely stunning. The summery (by Canadian standards) weather at the base area gave way to winter conditions near the halfway point of the course. This was the site of a new obstacle concocted by the devilish obstacle designers at Tough Mudder: the Snow Ramp. This was basically a giant mound of snow that you slid down just before plunging into a mostly-frozen lake. The Arctic Enema seems like a warm bath in comparison (I’m told). Another highlight was an inquisitive black bear who descended from the Olympic ski jump to sit on a log and watch the runners go by.
Lots more after the jump.
