July 26, 2014 ~ Sunday River, Maine
If you're looking for a 10-mile slog in the company of 10,000 other people or you want to wait in half-hour lines to climb over a few walls, you'll find plenty of mud runs and military-style obstacles races where you can do just that. If you want to suffer for hours on end or risk life and limb, you can find those races too. But if you're looking for something different – something as fun as it is tough without all the ego and attitude – welcome to the Tough Mountain Challenge.
Tough Mountain Challenge is an adventure obstacle race born in the mountains of Maine that might just be the most awesome race in the universe. You'll tackles the alpine terrain of Sunday River ski resort and a variety of natural and man-made obstacles over a five-kilometer course with plenty of elevation gain. You won't die, but it's a challenge you won't soon forget whether you're racing the clock or racing yourself through blood, sweat and tears. And when you finally cross the finish line, you’ll find yourself in the middle of an all-day party complete with music, barbecues, a beer garden, a Mini Mountain Challenge for kids, chairlift rides, ziplines, and lots more.
