Long before getting a college education and entering a white collar profession became so commonplace, more people worked in tough occupations that required lots of physical stamina to do the job right and plenty of mental stamina to return to the workplace every day. Nowadays these types of jobs are generally ones that people don’t want, but many people still relish the opportunity to test their physical and mental fortitude in a competition such as Tough Mudder.
Tough Mudder and Team Travel
According to its website, Tough Mudder is “a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won’t find anywhere else.”
So, if you and your friends are up for the challenge of participating in Tough Mudder Los Angeles this April, but you don’t live right around the corner from the event, you’ll need to make some travel arrangements before you hit the road. With this in mind, we list some ways that you can make your trip to Tough Mudder Los Angeles a fantastic occasion you are sure to remember.
1. Travel With Your Team in a Single Vehicle
Traveling with your team in a single, multi-passenger vehicle does more than save gas money and help keep team members who travel in separate vehicles from getting lost on the way. It also gives you the opportunity to bond with your teammates, as you talk about strategies for succeeding at the obstacle course. Tough Mudder is a team event. So, why not foster a team atmosphere from the start by traveling to the event in one of our multi-passenger vehicles?
Choose between 15-passenger vans that feature standard options or luxurious upgrades, 12-passenger vans, 7-passenger vans and cargo vans. We even offer Chevy Suburban and Chevy Silverado rentals. Whether you simply want a utilitarian multi-passenger vehicle, or you prefer a set of wheels that has a finely appointed cabin, we have you covered. Just contact us by phone or through our website to reserve the perfect team vehicle.
2. Compete With the People You Care About Most
Don’t let perceptions deceive you. You may have a preconceived notion in your mind about whom this event is intended for, but the truth is, Tough Mudder attracts people from all walks of life. You’ll participate alongside men and women of all ages and fitness levels, so get together with all of your best friends and relatives and create memories that will last a lifetime.
3. Visit Interesting Locations Along the Way
Los Angeles is a world-class city in several respects. The town has great restaurants, tons of shopping opportunities, stunning art galleries, hip night spots and the list goes on.
