Canada’s Toughest Mudder Recap Part 2: Elite Edition
 
On today’s episode we talk with four of the Elite Contenders to come out of Canada’s Toughest Mudder.
 
KC Northup finished fourth among the ladies with 30 miles. KC finished fourth in Atlanta at her first Toughest Mudder before a disappointing DNF at her second in Philadelphia. KC talks about her path from success to disappointment and back to success again at Whistler.
 
Shaun Stephens-Whale finished third among the men with 40 miles. Shaun has done Obstacle Course Races in the past, but his background is in Stair Running. He’s been all over the world running up some of the most iconic buildings ever built. Shaun finished his last lap in second place before Robert Killian pulled off an epic comeback to earn second place. Shaun talks about his thought process and how he felt watching Robert take second place bumping Shaun to third.
 
Allison Tai finished third among the women with 35 miles. This is Allison’s fourth Toughest Mudder podium, more than any other man or woman. She talks about the secret to her consistency, and why Canadians seem to take so well to Obstacle Course Racing.
 
Matthew Hanson finished fourth among the men with 40 miles. Matthew beat Austin Azar by four seconds for fourth place. Matthew said he felt like Austin was running him down, like someone hunting their prey. He gets into the race between the two of them and how it went down.

Toughest Mudder Whistler Preview with PJ Catalano

Toughest Canada weather report is at 14:10.

If you want to get straight to PJ, skip to 20:35.

PJ and Will talk about Toughest Whistler at 47:55

Will opens the episode with news from the world of Tough Mudder including the release of the Holy Grail Leaderboard. All of your milage from the Tough Mudder competitive series is logged and you are ranked based on miles completed. Right now Sara Knight leads all people with 120 miles.

TMHQ announced a new obstacle exlusively for Toughest Mudder Canada: Bears. That is a true story. They’re concerned about bears on or near the course so they’re taking some safely precautions. We talk about them as we preview Whistler.

Of all the guys that run multiple laps at Tough Mudder courses, PJ Catalano is the multi-lappingingest. He’s the only guy Will knows that has run three laps in one day at a course.

PJ has run WTM three times, in 2014, 15, and 16. He’s hit 50 miles or more twice but still feels like those years weren’t completely successful races for him.

One of the things PJ and Will talk about is the emotional side of running World’s Toughest Mudder. You won't hear many people talk about it, but WTM will provide you with some highs and some LOWS.

Heads up: Grown up language. Hide the kids.

Will Hicks talks about the big Tough Mudder X news and who he expects to see compete and who he does NOT expect to see out there. Do you realize 18 months ago you had two choices for a Tough Mudder event? You could run Tough Mudder or you could run World’s Toughest Mudder. Will talks about all seven of the current Tough Mudder events.

Then Keith Allen and Will Hicks talk about Toughest Mudder Philly, Matt B. Davis, and all these other people.

Keith and Will talk about Stage 5 clinger and the volunteer who was not allowing runners to help each other on the obstacle. Keith and Will talked before Will talked with Nolan and Eli of TMHQ last week. TMHQ told us that was a misunderstanding on the part of the volunteer and should not have been the case. They always want participants to help each other. It shouldn’t happen again.

Keith’s pit food for Toughest Philly? 3 water bottle filled with Tailwind, Strawberries, Blueberries, and Pretzel M&M’s.
