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.
