Welcome to the World’s Toughest Podcast, where we talk about any Obstacle Course Race you’d like, as long as it's World’s Toughest Mudder. Each week we talk to members of the WTM Community and share stories of success and failure in the single greatest event in OCR. The Worlds Toughest Podcast is a production of Contender Media and is not affiliated with Tough Mudder or TMHQ. Opinions expressed are those of the host and guest and are not necessarily the opinions of Tough Mudder. But they might be.

Running 75 miles at 200 pounds or better: Clydesdales and Athenas with Chris Betcher
 
Chris Betcher ran 75 miles at World’s Toughest Mudder in 2016. That’s great, but what makes it exceptional is he did it as a Clydesdale, a guy that weighs more than 200 pounds. (Don’t worry ladies. There’s a category for you too. Athenas are women who weigh more than 150 pounds.)
 
Chris wrote about his experience for Obstacle Racing Media which led to the creation of a Facebook Group dedicated to WTM participants that qualify as Clydesdales or Athenas. We talk about the article, about the group, and what he specifically did to prepare and execute to reach 75 miles in Vegas.
 
Don’t forget Toughest Mudder Atlanta is on CBS this weekend. Record it. Watch it twice.

Tough Mudder X preview with Morgan Mckay!

Morgan Mckay is competing this weekend at Tough Mudder X, the inaugural One Mile Tough Mudder course. Tough Mudder X is what would happen if Tough Mudder and CrossFit got together and had an adorable little competitive baby. And if that baby had a $25,000 prize for first place.

Morgan talks us through the course and tells us what to expect, and how she expects to do. Spoiler alert: She expects to do awesome. Or terrible. No in-between.
