My weekend consisted of working at the Tough Mudder Race held at Gunstock Ski Mountain. This is a 10-mile race with over 20 obstacles on the courses. I was on the Med Pro Medical Team. Trust me when I say they need a medical staff! Some of the obstacles can wreck your body!
My station for this race was the Arctic Enema. It consisted of a large bin of waist-deep water that was packed with ice. Participants had to jump in and swim under 2 fences then hop out. On a hot day, the Enema would be tough but it was a balmy 49 degrees out at the base of the mountain.
A little chilly for a swim in ice!
We had an ice truck backed up to our station and we kept tossing in crushed ice. There must have been over 300 pounds of ice when the race started!
Our obstacle was ready for action!
That lovely shine you see in the pictures….that’s the ice!
Feel free to enjoy their pain! This is just a small glimpse of our time there!
Would this be something you would enjoy?

The Mudder is great for team building as you can not go through it alone. It is designed to test your strength and help you push past your fears. You are never alone on the course! I saw people of all shapes, sizes, and walks of life! Well done Mudders…well done!
