Nolan Kombol and Eli Hutchison join us to talk Tough Mudder 5k, Tougher Mudder, and Toughest Mudder. Nolan and Eli are the heads of the product development team at TMHQ. If you enjoyed WTM last year, you have Nolan and Eli to thank for a lot of it.

TONS of new information in this episode, but here's some highlights:

Tougher Mudder will be at (almost) every Tough Mudder in 2017, including several international locations.

Tougher Mudder will require 100% Obstacle Completion. 

Tougher, Toughest, and World's Toughest form a three race Competitive series of Tough Mudders. They didn't say it specifically, but TM 5k, TM Half, and the regular Tough Mudder have formed a three race non-competitive series of Tough Mudder's.

There will be an online system for tracking your cumulative milage across Tougher Mudder, Toughest Mudder, and World's Toughest Mudder.

The "$100,000 for 100 Miles" team prize at WTM has been split into a $50,000 male prize and a $50,000 female prize. To qualify to win it you must be an Elite Contender going into WTM and then win WTM with at least 110 miles as a male or 100 miles as a female.

Lots of other information, including the Tough Mudder policy on podium T-shirts.

Kevin Chow joins us to talk about how much he loves Electroshock Therapy. (It's a lot.)

Kevin has done WTM three times and has completed over 25 Tough Mudder events. Just for fun, we reopen the "Do you count event days or laps" can of worms.

Kevin has spent most of his Tough Mudder career on the west coast of the U.S. He talks about his top two favorite courses, Tahoe and Whistler, and why they're great.

Kevin also talks about his plan for Toughest Mudder in L.A. and his unusual nutrition strategy. It involves beer.

Thanks to everyone who has left a kind word on the World's Toughest Mudder Community page about the podcast. 100-Miler Kris Mendoza left a comment on the page about episode 001 that we talk about before the conversation with Kevin.

Matty Gregg has done 45 Tough Mudder events, including five times at World's Toughest Mudder. In addition to the WTM community, Matty is a member of the St. Baldrick's community. You might remember from the Christmas Day WTM show seeing Tiffany Aab and several other shave their heads for charity. That was part of a fundraiser Matty worked with that raised over $125,000.00 for St. Baldricks. Matty talks about that on today's episode.

Matty also talks about his first WTM in 2012, the obstacle he hates the most (It's Leap of Faith) and nutrition strategies for the new 8-hour Toughest Mudder races.

Melissa “Sharkbait” Dugan is the most well known member of the WTM community. Every month she volunteers countless hours helping members of the community plan, prepare, and train for World’s Toughest Mudder.

At the 2016 WTM Post Race Brunch she was awarded the very first Community Teamwork Award by Tough Mudder HQ in recognition of the work she puts in on behalf of the community.

Melissa talks about the secret to conquering The Cliff, finding joy in miserable situations, and what she thinks about Toughest Mudder and the new obstacles debuting at Toughest Mudder L.A.
