Tough Mudder Half challenges participants to make teamwork a priority

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. — Thousands of participants will head to Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey for the Tough Mudder Half Tri-State presented by Merrell on Oct. 8 and 9.

The half is a great start for anyone who has ever wanted to take part in a tough Mudder, but didn’t want to experience the long distance, electric shock, fire or ice cold water. The Tough Mudder Half is a 5-mile course filled with 14 obstacles. More than 55 percent of the participants are women.

The Tough Mudder Half is not a race, but rather a challenge that brings people together as a team.
