ETX athletes participate in Austin Tough Mudder

East Texas athletes got down and dirty this weekend at a Tough Mudder event in Austin,Texas.

The Tough Mudder is a 10 to 12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, and metal grit.

15 members of Loudhouse Crossfit joined over 4,000 other competitors in a day of mud crawls, shock obstacles, climbing walls and more.

The course took their entire team five hours to finish.

"I thought the hardest thing was probably either going under the water, the ice water or climbing the walls. I had a blast I want to do it again and I want to do it faster, said Kevin McGee, Tough Mudder participant.

The Tough Mudder event has raised over three million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.
