Ulrikke Evensen joins us to talk about her first-place finish at Europe's Toughest Mudder.

Ulrikke ran 45 miles at Europe's Toughest Mudder, tying the women's record held by Lindsay Webster and Allison Tai.

Ulrikke talks about how the race went for her, how the weather affected her, and how a man named Sam from the U.K. stepped up at the last minute to be her pit crew. Well done Sam. You're smashing it.

Before we talk with Ulrikke we talk about the men's and women's podiums. We will discuss the full list of results and mileage totals when they are released by TMHQ.

Allison Tai and Shaun Stephens-Whale are the Toughest Mudder South women's and men's second-place finishers.

Allison ran 40 miles for her second-place finish. Allison's personal best for Toughest Mudder is her 45-mile performance at Chicago in 2017 to secure the Toughest Mudder Series win.

Shaun Stephens-Whale ran 45 miles for his second-place. Shaun and eventual winner Ryan Atkins traded the lead back and forth for the first 30 miles.

Before we talk with Allison and Shaun we take a deep dive into the numbers of Toughest Mudder South. How many runners were there? How many earned their contender status? Was this the hardest Toughest Mudder? Prove it.

Europe's Toughest Mudder preview!

Ian Kay joins us to talk about the weather, the course, and the obstacles for Europe's Toughest Mudder.

Europe's Toughest Mudder is an eight-hour race on a five-mile looped course. The man and woman who complete the most laps in eight hours are crowned "Europe's Toughest Mudder".

Before we talk with Ian we talk about the prizing for the race, including the fact that winning Europe's Toughest Mudder is worth about 10% more than winning a Toughest Mudder in America.

We review a few common questions about the rules and then we talk about the elites to watch this weekend. The biggest news with the elites is the one who WON'T be there. Jon Albon is competing in the Trail Running World Championships this weekend in Spain and will not be in the U.K. to defend his title from last year.
