Join the Wayne Law Tough Mudder team

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to join Wayne State University Law School Dean Jocelyn Benson in running through fire, crawling through mud-pits, and scaling walls during Tough Mudder, a 10- to12-mile extreme obstacle course considered one of the toughest and most popular fitness events in the world. Developed by British Special Forces, Tough Mudder was created in 2010 and, since then, more than 700,000 people have participated, raising almost $5 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Teams of "Mudders" will run a gauntlet of military-style obstacles designed to test their physical and mental limits. Teammates tackle obstacles like the "Mud Mile," "Cage Crawl," and "Electroshock Therapy," and then celebrate at the finish line with drinks and a live band.

Benson will be heading a team of Wayne Warriors in this year's Tough Mudder event on Saturday, June 29, in Brooklyn, Mich. All in the Wayne State community are welcome to sign up. Those interested in joining the team should email for registration details by Thursday, April 11.
