Quite some time ago when I was trying to find out how to get 50% off my Sunday Tough Mudder when I was running back to back Tough Mudders, I stumbled upon this frequently asked question on the Tough Mudder website.
This has to be a joke right? They have received THAT many inquiries on whether or not women can register for a Tough Mudder that it had to be a frequently asked question?! I don’t know whether to be mad at Tough Mudder for humoring the question or at the people who have asked it. Maybe both.
I don’t think Tough Mudder should have this as one of their FAQ’s no matter how many people ask it. It should go without saying that women can enter this race or any race. Or do anything.
With that being said who asks this question? I am assuming women do because why would a guy ask it? And I assume that women are asking this question because they are not confident in their abilities to do the race. If that is so then why not ask a question that has to do with abilities versus gender?
Another thing that strikes me odd about this FAQ on that Tough Mudder website is that if it is so frequently asked one would think that it would also appear on other mud run websites like Spartan Race or Warrior Dash, right? Well, it doesn’t. I could not find a similar FAQ on either of their sites. Perhaps it is asked but they don’t recognize it?
Either way this frequently asked questions rubs me the wrong way.
Time for you to weigh in! What do you think about this FAQ on the Tough Mudder site?
