A LITTLE MUD NEVER HURT ANYONE: 2014 TOUGH MUDDER
Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile obstacle course designed to test all-around strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit. Wiith obstacles having names such as Pole Dancer, Fire in Your Hole, or Ladder to Hell, the Tough Mudder was a challenge that appealed to the most dauntless of our Counterpointe staff members. On a sunny June day, the small but determined Counterpointe team headed to Doswell, VA to join over 10,000 other participants who accepted the challenge. At around noon, they set off to conquer the 34 obstacles. After a grueling 3.5 hours working as a team and helping each other through holes and high water, the Counterpointe Mudders completed their mission and crossed Finish Line together.
Counterpointe is proud to have made a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that Tough Mudder supports and promotes.
