What a way to start the year and together we crushed January’s 1st 5K. Thousands of you signed up to the virtual event- you accepted the challenge, you completed your 5km and earnt your unique swag. We’re still enjoying the buzz of accomplishment.
Your 1st 5K recap – what went down
The Tough Mudder global community came out in force, as 3,602 Mudders joined at the virtual start line and challenged themselves to the first of our themed Virtual Events. They took on a 5km route of their own design, starting and ending at the same point. For some it was taking on a long standing goal, for others it was proving they could and for a few it was setting a new personal best.
The Challenges Facebook group was inundated with 5K badges and route images, kudos to those who came up with creatively designed routes. 330 of you wanted to truly mark your achievement- hell yes you should- and collected the specially created finisher swag.
The noise on the Strava Tough Mudder Club– rapidly becoming our favourite social hub- was resounding as the kudos, support and advice accompanied each athletes run. The Tough Mudder HQ team even got in on the action; taking on a virtual group lunchtime run, walk or dog pulled jog.
So you’ve started along your virtual challenge path and you want to keep up the momentum. Stride 100 Milestone has your name on it, for the next step in your journey. To be clear, we’re working in mileage, so don’t think you’ll get away with 100 strides.
