Area Men Compete in Tough Mudder Event

Tough Mudder

Five area men competed this past weekend in a Tough Mudder event in Richmond. Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race, but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won’t find anywhere else. Pictured, left to right: Jake Shawgo, Doug Banwart, Josh Webb, Jacob Schisler and Tyler Fulton. The team was sponsored by Beaird Fitness in Astoria.
