Eric runs a website and podcast about everything in the ultra running world. Like not just the big names and/or big gear etc. So he’s sort of the Obstacle Racing Media of the Ultra world. Except that he came first, so I am the OCR Eric Schranz. Anyhow, we had a cool chat about similarities and differences, and whatever else came to mind about OCR and Ultra.

Tough Mudder Introduces Their 2018 Pro Team/Competitive Series

12:20pm Update – Here is the podcast interview.

In September of 2017, TMHQ announced the first ever Tough Mudder Pro Team. Ryan Atkins, Lindsay Webster, Hunter McIntyre and Stef Bishop had already been featured on most of TM’s online content, so few were surprised.  Today, the 2018 team is being announced much sooner in the year. TMHQ revealed this morning that Ryan, Lindsay, and Hunter are all coming back, and they have added two more women. The first is Corinna Coffin. Corinna had been mostly dormant in OCR since BattleFrog folded in the fall of 2016. She came back last July to win the first ever Tough Mudder X.

The second woman is Allison Tai. Along with being the favorite guest of The World’s Toughest Podcast, Allison won last year’s Holy Grail Leaderboard (Total competitive miles) with 305 total miles. Stef Bishop is not returning to the team. Stef won World’s Toughest Mudder in 2016, then had a relatively disappointing 2017 Tough Mudder season.

Matt B. Davis spoke to TMHQ’s Eli Hutchison and Corinna Coffin to discuss some of the news. The podcast episode will be released later today, so be sure to download it so you can listen to it on your next run.

Matt and Eli will be talking about the evolution of the competitive series. Many Mudders enjoyed the Tougher and Toughest events in 2017, as well as Tough Mudder X and World’s Toughest Mudder. Tough Mudder is now calling these events, Fittest, Fastest, and Toughest, with the culmination being World’s Toughest Mudder on November 10th and 11th in Atlanta, Georgia.

Check out the video introducing the different championship series here!

This episode could also be called : Asheville Finish Line Fun Plus Messner.

First you are going to hear several back to back interviews from the finish line at the Asheville Spartan Super.

Ryan Woods, Matt Kempson, Hobie Call, Robert Killian, Ian Hosek, Cody King, Nicole Mericle, Lindsay Webster, Rea Kobl, Faye Stenning, Alyssa Hawley, and a few more special drop in guests.

Then I have my first sit down with Laura Messner. 5 years worth of episodes, and I have never had Laura on the show. So it was nice to have her come by the ORM tent for a (mostly) uninterrupted chat.
