Lake Tahoe Tough Mudder

The Scottish Rite Tough Mudder Team is ready to “take the mountain” on August 16, 2014 at Lake Tahoe, CA. All 5 team members from last year have returned this year, and 8 new members have been added.

This year the Scottish Rite Tough Mudder Team for the event will start the 11-mile course at Noon. Tough Mudder obstacle courses are designed to test all-around strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit. The courses are designed by former British Special Forces. The Lake Tahoe course will include 20+ obstacles. The returning Scottish Rite Team Members from 2013 will navigate an additional one-mile added to the course, with several additional obstacles, which will earn them the right to receive and wear a different colored headband that distinguishes them from first time participants. The Tough Mudder event is billed as “Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet.”

Although these are very grueling events, they are also fun events. In keeping with our mission of camaraderie, education, fellowship, brotherhood, and fraternity we invite you to come join us on the mountain as a spectator.

Here is a video clip from last year’s event.

In addition to supporting your Scottish Rite Team, there is another good reason to support this event. The Tough Mudder organization has chosen the Wounded Warrior Project as their charity of choice. A percentage of all ticket sales go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Thus far, Tough Mudder has donated over $6.5 million to this worthy cause. The Wounded Warrior Project has helped thousands of Wounded Warriors make the transition from the battlefield to life back home. Scottish Rite has a long history of supporting our troops, and is proud to help support the efforts of the Wounded Warrior Project.
