If you missed my last article on Tough Mudder’s Infinite Hero Honor Challenge, you can read it here. The 10-hour team building event that requires participants to use a map to find points at a Tough Mudder venue, then complete tasks, all while wearing a lightweight ruck.
Here’s a quick guide on who should sign up for Infinite Hero Honor Challenge:
If you are a fan of Tough Mudder and have started working your way through their Legionnaire status collecting the plethora of colored headbands you get for each achievement, you’ll want to try this. The event stays true to the Tough Mudder brand but adds some twists to your favorite obstacles. Plus, Infinite Hero Honor Challenge counts towards your Legionnaire status.
The Ruck Star
If you’ve done other ruck-based events, you need to see what Tough Mudder Infinite Hero Honor Challenge has to offer. It’s a different experience and you may like it more than some other brand’s take on team building challenges or ruck challenges.
The Military Enthusiast
If you always wanted to be in the military but life called you to another vocation, come experience the fun parts without the lifelong commitment. This scenario puts you into a military mindset providing challenges that focus on teamwork combined with a Tough Mudder unique twist on their world famous obstacles.
Tired of your company taking you to boring team building events? Bring them to the Infinite Hero Honor Challenge and you’ll have an unforgettable memory that challenges the group, increases communication and shows the unique value each member brings to the company. Plus, your company will be able to take credit for all the fundraising that is part of your platoon’s efforts.
Part of registration is a fundraising goal to support mental & physical health of US Veterans through a donation to Infinite Hero Foundation. This has a direct impact on the lives of veterans and supports IHF in helping one of our country’s most important communities.
Anyone Who Runs OCR
Let’s face it, training and racing is sometimes a selfish activity. I personally spend a lot of time focused on OCR so I like to use it as a way to give back and this event provides that outlet via the fundraising commitment.
The Toughest Mudder Prepper or Holy Grail Seeker
Are you planning on attending Toughest Mudder in 2021 or beyond? To get used to walking/jogging for 12 hours or 24 if you are attending the big show, World’s Toughest Mudder. The Infinite Hero Honor Challenge will keep you on your feet for 10 hours, but you’ll be moving at a slower pace making it a great stepping stone and prep work for the Tough Mudder Endurance series of events.
The Swag Aficionado
New bibs, new headbands, new t-shirts, new patches and a new challenge coin are a part of the awesome swag package you’ll get for signing up. Plus, the patches and challenge coins are event specific, so if you want to go to multiple events, you’ll have a unique piece of swag for each one. Will anyone take the challenge to complete all four in 2021?
- Tri-State on September 11th
- Washington D.C. on October 16th
- Los Angeles on October 23rd
- Dallas on November 6th
If you are waiting for an event closer to you… I’ll just share this piece of advice: If you want more events in more locations, come to what is on the schedule in 2021 so the brand can continue to expand to more venues.
Get ready for an experience like none other… Tough Mudder’s Infinite Hero Honor Challenge hits the ground running on September 11th. Will you complete all the missions and make it to the extraction point?
