Tough Mudder, a 10- to 12-mile obstacle course challenge that involves diving into ice-cold water, crawling through mud and running through bursts of fire, will make a stop in South Florida.Â Homestead-Miami Speedway will be invaded by thousands of runners who will be negotiating a course patterned after British Special Forces training methods. Runners will barrel through mud holes, army crawl under barbed wire and plunge into frigid ice water completing a total of 20-25 obstacles constructed across portions of the 640-acre facility.Â With the built-in incentive to get in shape, the bragging rights that come with finishingâ€“ not to mention earning the coveted signature orange Tough Mudder headband and a free beer — the event provides participants with plenty of good reasons to step up to the challenge.Â For between $95 and $200, anyone at least 18 years of age who is willing to sign a waiver can hurl themselves over walls, under half-submerged obstacles, into the grip of 10,000 volts of electricity and other challenges spread throughout the course.Â People are encouraged to form teams and start together. The Homestead-Miami Speedway meet is the first ever in South Florida. Registration closes February 25.
