Whether you’re crushing obstacles on the course or tackling a virtual challenge, when it comes to running a Tough Mudder, it’s good to have a solid teammate. Sure, teammates aren’t required to complete a Tough Mudder course, challenge, or training session—but having one to motivate and inspire you is always a good thing!
Speaking of teammates, for Tough Mudder Challenges – Mission: Sea to Space, Tough Mudder and Navy Federal Credit Union teamed up to create one of the toughest challenges yet. Even better, it’s one that you can do in your own backyard.
Need someone to help you get it done? Veterans are excellent team members. Their service to our nation goes beyond inspiring, and their skills make them an asset both on and off the course. We’re grateful to have so many vets as a part of Mudder Nation. Check out some of our favorite reasons to have a veteran by your side.
1. Veterans Know the Value of Teamwork
Collaboration and camaraderie are vital to the success of a military mission (and to a Tough Mudder!). When a veteran has your back, you know you can count on them to help you push through and succeed together.
2. Veterans Have Mental Strength and a Strong Work Ethic
The military hinges on accomplishment. Whether it’s the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Space Force, every veteran has played an important role in carrying out and seeing things through to completion. We can’t think of a better quality to have in a teammate.
3. Veterans Have Quick Problem Solving Skills
Expect the unexpected —that’s an important mindset to have when facing difficult situations. Things can change quickly and when a fast solution is required, veterans have the skills to make decisions on the fly.
4. Veterans Are Loyal
Service to our country is a prime example of the loyalty that you can expect from veterans. When things get tough on the course, your loyal teammate will be there to help see you through to the finish.
5. Veterans Can Perform Under Pressure
Adaptability, mental grit, reliability, and the strength to handle tough situations are qualities so many veterans carry with them. When going gets tough, veterans get going.
Tough Mudder Challenges – Mission: Sea to Space taps into the hard work and dedication of the military and is inspired by the service of these men and women. On Veterans Day and every day, we are grateful for them.
