Rescue crews treat more than 100 at Tough Mudder event in Gilford Saturday
Temperatures on Sunday were in the 90s, and humidity was high, but most entrants finished the events, which are designed to test strength, stamina, and “mental grit,” according to Tough Mudder officials.
“There was nothing serious (in terms of injuries) that we know of outside of dislocations, probably some fractures. It was mostly heat-related illness,” said Fire Chief Stephen Carrier.
On Sunday, 30 event participants needed treatment, and eight were taken to the hospital, Carrier said.
Tough Mudder events, now held worldwide, support the Wounded Warrior Project, which supports the needs of severely injured service men and women. Participants are asked to raise funds for the company by emailing an online fundraising link to friends and family.
