In this episode we talk about the elites that we know will and will not be at Toughest Mudder Europe and give you some athletes to watch this weekend. We also talk with Will Chung and Daniel Stephens. Wil and Daniel are both from England and have both run regular Tough Mudders at Grantham, site of Toughest Mudder Europe.
Wil Chung ran in the first ever international edition of Tougher Mudder last weekend at Midlands UK and he walks us through how it went. Wil will be running Toughest Mudder this weekend and we talk about what he expects from the event.
Daniel Stephens ran the first Tough Mudder of the UK season last Saturday morning. Then he got on a plane and flew to America where he ran Toughest Mudder Atlanta that night and put up 25 miles. Daniel tells us about that whole experience and how it went for him. We also talk about his experience at World’s Toughest Mudder. Daniel was not happy with his performance at his first WTM in 2015. He talks about how he dealt with that and came back stronger in 2016 to finish 50 miles.
