Could Tough Mudder become a part of the United States Military’s training regiment? Staff Sergeant Rice, with the U.S. Army Fitness Trainers Group from Fort Knox, Tennessee, describes why a group of instructors put together a team of trainers for their first Tough Mudder race.

Fortunately for us, Staff Sergeant Rice made sure to check in with us after the race, too! From the looks of this video, the team had an amazing experience. Between the team building benefits, coupled with the intense training required to get through a Tough Mudder race, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a lot more members of the US Military gritting their way through Tough Mudder’s obstacles.

This year, Mohawk Flooring has partnered with Tough Mudder to promote our Tough Mudder Challenge. We put our new SmartStrand® Forever Clean carpet, the toughest, easiest to clean carpet on the planet™, to the test at several Tough Mudders across the country. Thousands of muddy feet trampled over our SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet, leaving behinds layers of caked on, sunbaked, mud, dirt, and grime, that was later cleaned to reveal the soft, beautiful carpet looking as good as new!
