Tough Mudder New England Returns to Mount Snow
Mount Snow, VT. – June 19, 2017 – For the seventh straight year Mount Snow welcomes back Tough Mudder, the leading active lifestyle brand and media company, to its Southern Vermont mountain resort on June 24-25, 2017. This annual destination is forecasted to bring over 8,000 participants from all over the United States and Canada for the unofficial kickoff of a summer full of events at Mount Snow. Tough Mudder New England, presented by Merrell, is the 10-12 mile obstacle course challenge packing in 20-25 signature obstacles, testing physical strength, mental grit and teamwork.
The Tough Mudder New England 2017 course will once again make use of Mount Snow’s varied and steep terrain, and will feature mud, ice-cold water, barbed wire, electric shocks and other obstacles, including old standbys like Electroshock Therapy and new challenges like Kong.
Tough Mudder New England, as this stop is known, has consistently received some of the highest reviews of any venue out of the 200+ events worldwide that Tough Mudder has put on.
In what has become a tradition over the years, the local community will be out in force to greet the thousands of Tough Mudder participants and spectators with enthusiasm and support as they arrive into town, with many local businesses donning the trademark orange and black banners and Tough Mudder welcome signs.
“While it’s our facilities and world-class terrain that play host to the actual event, we couldn’t do it without the help and support of the community and businesses of Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley,” said Tim Dolan, events manager at Mount Snow. “While the run is the main focus of the weekend, it’s great to see local businesses and lodging accommodations fill up with Mudders before and after the event, who all enjoy and appreciate what our valley has to offer.”
“We are thrilled to return to Mount Snow for the seventh year in a row to host our signature Tough Mudder event,” said Hilary May, Event Director for Tough Mudder, Inc. “This year’s event will welcome over 8,000 new and returning participants, making it a banner event we look forward to annually. We are excited to work with the local community and stakeholders to provide a positive economic impact on the region, as Mudders travel near and far to see what’s new at Mount Snow in 2017.”
