Tough Mudder 2017

Pieta House & Tough Mudder 2017

Pieta House supporters are joining forces to take part in one of the world’s toughest obstacle events ‘Tough Mudder’. Our supporters will head to Loughcrew Adventure Centre on Saturday July 8th to take part in this world-renowned event and to raise much-needed funds for their efforts.

The team will have to complete the challenging course, which includes obstacles such as ‘Arctic Enema,’ where participants plunge into icy water, ‘Berlin Walls’, a series of 10 foot high walls to conquer and the infamous ‘Everest’ a steep quarter pipe that requires courage and teamwork to summit. The 10 plus mile course culminates with ‘Electroshock Therapy,’ where participants run through a field of wires carrying up to 10,000 volts of electricity.

Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10 plus mile obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. There is also the option of doing the Tough Mudder Half, if ten miles doesn’t seem like your cup of tea.

Tough Mudder is all about camaraderie. It is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience world-class obstacles they won’t find anywhere else. Tough Mudder is challenging for even the fittest of competitors as some of the obstacles are virtually impossible to complete alone, but the course is achievable for people of all backgrounds, if they work together.

We can offer everyone who would like to fundraise for Pieta House a discount on the entry fee.

Full Mudder - €79
Half Mudder - €49

This discount is available until the 1st June.
