Harvard Tough Mudder Club
Contact: John Bedell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Overview: The Harvard College Tough Mudders are
primarily concerned with providing the tools necessary to access
and participate in obstacle-course endurance races in New England.
This includes education of race mechanics, course obstacles, and
training to provide the physical fitness necessary to compete. We
hope to embody the Tough Mudder Mission
Statement: “To shift the entire focus of
endurance sports away from personal performance and boring
repetitive exercises to varied challenges, teamwork, camaraderie,
and genuine fun.”
Club life: Tough Mudder commitment is low-key
and determined by each member. There will be optional weekly
training sessions involving running, lifting, swimming, and
preparation for the other obstacles; members are encouraged to
workout and ready themselves individually. In addition to training,
social gatherings will be planned throughout the semester.
Competition: Tough Mudders train all year for a
single race which occurs on the first weekend of May in Vermont.
Although the race is a competition with thousands of other
participants, Harvard Tough Mudders are committed to completing the
entire race as a unified team. Expenses for this trip will be
covered by team funds.
