Crawling through the mud of Tough Mudder in Black Diamond | Slideshow

Over 10,000 people got to crawl through mud and freezing cold water as part of the Tough Mudder obstacle course event Saturday and Sunday in Black Diamond.

Tough Mudder, which creates 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces, tries to provide the same grueling physical training as military obstacle courses. The course also varies from each location, taking advantage of the region’s geography and natural terrain.
