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.
