Here's a great video with the obstacles.  Doesn't look too bad, really!  =)  But doing it at 6500+ feet when I live at sea level, with ski resort inclines, will be interesting!  LOL

Oh, god, we're climbing the summit!!  LOL  YIKES!!

An e-mail from TM:

Tahoe Mudders,

 

Today is better than every other Friday: it's a Tough Mudder Weekend Friday. A badass mountain course awaits you at Northstar California Resort with obstacles that will push your limits. It's going to be a hot one with temperatures in the 80s and full sun. Make sure to wear waterproof sunscreen and hydrate tons at the six water stations along the course and before the event, too. In fact, go chug water right now. We want the course to kick your ass - not the weather.

 

Get pumped: this mountain course is one of the most demanding courses Tough Mudder has ever designed.  As usual, camaraderie will be crucial for this challenge - your teammates and fellow Mudders will help you get to the finish. Even the most seasoned Mudders are going to be put to the test for the first brutal 5 miles of uphill climbing to a peak of over 8,600 feet.  After you've reached the summit, it's no breezy jog down a mountain. You'll be descending rapidly over loose rocky terrain, so you'd better watch your step (and not just the scenery) on the way down.  Remember, it's not a race - it's a challenge.
