The last Toughest Mudder of 2019 was last week, just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. Toughest Mudder West was held at the same venue World's Toughest Mudder was held from 2014-2017.

The men's and women's winners of Toughest Mudder West are Jake Ramsby and Jennifer Lynn. Jake and Jennifer join the show to talk about their race, their plans for World's Toughest Mudder, and what they thought about the "Dizzy Bat" penalty for Electroshock Therapy.

Before he talks with them though, Will talks about his disappointing race at Toughest Mudder West and how he plans to run 50 miles at World's Toughest Mudder 2019. (Spoiler: 25 by 10:00pm, 40 by 6:00am, 50 by noon)

Johnny Little, VP of International Development for Tough Mudder and Race Director for Toughest Mudder South, Toughest Mudder West and World's Toughest Mudder joins the show.

Toughest Mudder South was last month. There were a few hiccups. The first lap was only 4.5 miles long. The second lap and every lap after were 5.5 miles long. Johnny talks about what went wrong and how they fixed it on the fly. 

Toughest Mudder West is this weekend. Johnny talks about runners can expect from the iconic Lake Las Vegas course and whether The Cliff will make an appearance. (Spoiler: Nope.)

Johnny and Will wrap up with a sneak peek at World's Toughest Mudder 2019 and talk of "gamification" on course in Atlanta.

Kyle McLaughlin is the CEO of Tough Mudder. Kyle joins Will to update the community on World’s Toughest Mudder 2019.

Two of the biggest changes this year:

  1. No more stressing about getting the venue as soon as possible on Friday. You will be able to choose your pit spot online before you even get to Atlanta. 
  2. At the 2.5 Mile point of the race will be a Quick-Pit. Your pit crew will be able to give you food and beverages and communicate about what else you may need when you finish that lap. Also, Coach will be hosting a 24-Hour dance party at the quick pit.

More information on those additions to World's Toughest Mudder and much more in our conversation with Kyle McLaughlin.
