Welcome to The Unit Gym Claregalway Tough Mudder team. From this page and our Facebook event page we will be keeping you up to date with all things Tough Mudder and what we are doing for it in the lead up to July 8th 2017 including our free class dedicated to Tough Mudder starting on Saturday, 25th February at 11:00am.
Tough Mudder Training
Our Tough Mudder Training begins Saturday, 25th February at 11am.
What exactly is Tough Mudder?
Tough Mudder is a 10 mile obstacle and mud course that features 30+ obstacles such as Block Ness Monster (Voted best obstacle of 2016), Arctic Enema (A refreshing ice bath of sorts) and Electroshock Therapy (10,000 volts that will shock you to your core). There are no winners at Tough Mudder. It is not a timed race. Instead Tough Mudder celebrate conquering fears, teamwork and camaraderie. It is likely that our team will include people of all levels of fitness and no matter what we promise to stick together and help each other through it. It is the perfect goal to work towards and the thought of having to run up Everest (curved 1/4 pipe) is sure to keep you motivated in your workouts.
Tough Mudder Half
For those of you who think this may just be too much too early, well your prayers have been answered as this year you can get involved with Tough Mudder Half. It is the 5 mile equivalent of Tough Mudder minus Arctic Enema and Electroshock Therapy. The perfect way to introduce yourself into the Tough Mudder world.
The Unit is delighted to be able to offer you a discounted rate of €79 for the Tough Mudder or €49 for the Half. Read below to book your place.

Our 2016 Experience
In 2016 a group of 20 members from the gym travelled to Loughcrew Adventure centre in Co Meath for Tough Mudder 2016. It was a fantastic day and was great to see everyone take on the course and enjoy themselves in the mud in a childlike carefree manner. The beer at the finish line went down well too.
In 2017 Tough Mudder is going to be bigger and better than ever so here at The Unit we want to go back again this year with a bigger team. We will be scheduling fitness classes in the gym for all fitness levels specifically targeted towards helping you master the Tough Mudder course. We are recruiting our team now so if you and/or any of your friends and family would like to participate with The Unit team don't hesitate to contact us.
