Tough Mudder is coming back to Westbrook Sept. 26 and 27, this time with tear gas

Written by: Shannon Bryan

Are you tough enough to do it again?

Or maybe you missed out on last year’s Tough Mudder event in Westbrook, which brought more than 13,000 participants to town last year. Look at the photos, it was no easy feat. But that’s the point.

The event is coming back to Westbrook on September 26 and 27. The more than 10-mile course will feature new obstacles, too, like the tear gas obstacle known as “Cry Baby,” which we told you about last week.

So even if you’ve participated before, organizers have a whole new host of ways to torture you this year.

Here’s more about the new obstacles from the press release:
“Brand-new obstacles hitting the course in Westbrook this year will include “Dead Ringer,” a transverse across a series of inclined pegs using handheld rings; and “Cry Baby,” a tunnel crawl through a tear-gas-like substance. Classic obstacles including slicked quarter-pipe “Everest” have been redesigned, with “2.0” versions offering new twists on the classic challenges, pushing participants to work as a team.”

Registration is now open at Event launch tickets are $119 per participant ($109 registration fee plus $10 mandatory insurance) but will continue to go up as the race date gets closer.
