Drumheller resident ready to tough out the mud

Rav Lal will be running in Tough Mudder’s event race September 6 and 7 with his six person team.

The excitement for Tough Mudder is building throughout the Town of Drumheller.
    It may be one of the biggest- and definitely the most extreme- events to hit the Valley, and the residents of Drumheller are welcoming the challenge with open arms.
    Rav Lal is one Drumheller resident who is ready to take on all of Tough Mudder’s 16-20 kilometer, 34 obstacle glory. Running alongside his six person team made up of his wife, Shawna Lal, and friends, Lal will have to face obstacles made up of- but not limited to- mud, ice, fire, and even electric shocks.
    “I wanted to sign up mostly because of the challenge of completing the race, for myself. From seeing all the videos and reading more about it, I’m a combination of excited and nervous, it looks like it’s going to be pretty tough,” Lal says.
    Tough Mudder keeps the actual course that will be run a secret, only disclosing specific need-to-know information about the track. What the participants do know is to expect the unexpected- any of the obstacles on the information site could be used in the course.
    “You know what all the obstacles are, you just have no idea what you’re actually going to see that day,” explains Lal.
    Tough Mudder’s challenging race is now less than a month away, as the set date for the event is September 6 and 7.
