Attention all you Mudders out there: Wildwood Missouri Hosts 2018 Tough Mudder Event! HOORAH!
Jason Boyd, senior VP Operations with Peak Resorts, which owns Hidden Valley Resort, said the ski area provides the topography, access to chair lifts and snow-making systems that could make a Tough Mudder event very successful.
What is Tough Mudder?
Tough Mudder is an extreme obstacle and endurance course event that is held throughout the country. According to their web site:
Tough Mudder is 10 miles of mud and 20+ obstacles designed to drag you out of your comfort zone. The ordinary will always be there. Why not try for something extra? With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, Tough Mudder isn’t about how fast you can cross the finish line. It’s about pushing yourself. It’s about teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something extraordinary. So challenge yourself. Find more in the mud. Escape the Ordinary.
Obstacle courses named Funky Monkey, Arctic Enema, Electroshock Therapy, Cage Crawl, Walk the Plank, and Everest will undoubtedly bring in the competitors … but also the curious.
On October 14th the event was held in Sedalia, Missouri attracting close to five thousand people. With all due respect to Sedalia (I mean you really want to go if you drive that far) the easy access to Wildwood, and Hidden Valley should be a winner for the community and local businesses.
What sets Wildwood apart from other St. Louis suburbs? The amount of planning, design, and greenspaces set aside for numerous outdoor activities, community events, and recreation. Wildwood is the home of the Al Foster Trail, one of the most extensive trail systems that make up the Castlewood State Park and is a offical segment of the Ozark Trail, which goes all the way to the Arkansas border.
