Tough Mudder takes over Beaver Creek
It's billed as “probably the toughest event on the planet.”
See for yourself Saturday and Sunday as the roving Tough Mudder competition lands in Beaver Creek.
Thousands of people will be running up hills, crawling through mud and climbing over obstacles on a nearly 12-mile course.
Organizers expect up to 25,000 people over the weekend, so if you're going to race or watch, plan ahead.
Organizers say racers should get to the village at least 2 hours early. Registration info is here.
Check out the course maps for racers and spectators.
Spectator tickets cost $25. A portion of sales goes toward the Wounded Warrior Project. You get access to the chairlift and Dos Equis after party.
There is no charge for spectators who hike and walk around the mountain to watch the event. No bike access will be permitted during the event, but cyclists may ride up to Beaver Creek Village to watch the event.
According to the Vail Daily, the best place to watch the event will be at the top of Centennial Express Lift/Spruce Saddle and the top of the Buckaroo Gondola/The Ranch. Spectator maps with hiking options and course details will be available. Chairlifts will be open at 8:30 a.m., with a final upload at 4:30 p.m., and a final download at 5 p.m.
