3. Tough Mudder 

This 12-mile obstacle course might be lengthy but the experience is definitely worth it. You’ll be trudging through the mountain terrain with plenty of obstacles. Some might include running through electrical wires, the arctic enema (basically swimming through a bucket filled with ice), climbing the berlin walls and more. This race will test your limits but it’s all about camaraderie and teamwork. You’ll get muddy but it won’t matter at all.

The closest event from UConn is at Mount Snow in Vermont on June 6th & 7th. (Click Below)
