Wintergreen Resort will not be hosting a Tough Mudder event in 2012, Resort spokesperson Dana Quillen said. In a statement, Quillen said though Tough Mudder would not return in October, the Resort is looking at the Spring of 2013 as a potential time for a Tough Mudder event.
A challenging 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces, the event last October attracted several thousand competitors and spectators to the Resort, including 18 members of Team Nelson, a group started by NCL publisher Yvette Stafford. Fundraising efforts by Team Nelson raised $500 for Wintergreen Adaptive Sports, a local charity whose mission is to “improve the lives of people with a disability through outdoor sports and recreation,” according to its web site.
Should Tough Mudder and Wintergreen Resort ink a deal for 2013, we’ll let you know.
