We talked with Gina Estrada about working Pit Crew for Toughest Mudder and World’s Toughest Mudder. Gina has worked pit for Team Four Eyes, Amelia Boone, Ryan Atkins, Austin Azar, Trevor Cichosz, Lindsay Webster, Allison Tai and more. Will got to watch Gina work a bit in Atlanta. When one of her athletes would come in she would feed them, handle their gear, and get them back onto the course like a Nascar pit stop.
She shares some of her secrets including having a “Pit Kit” ready and on hand at all times. Anything that her athlete could imagine they would need, she has in her Pit Kit. From batteries to nutrition to meds to chewing gum and more, she’s ready for whatever goes wrong. Building your own Pit Kit is a good first step to running a pit crew.
