A British Special Forces training spinoff, Tough Mudder pits one’s inner beast against a 12-mile-long series of obstacles, from plunging into a frigid river to crashing headlong through dangling live wires. At least eight alumni, including those pictured here, plus Abby Calhoun, Eric Ramirez, Boris Khovitch, Zachary Merves and Michael Perez (all C’09), competed in small teams at last November’s Tri-State competition in Englishtown, N.J. Proceeds benefited the nonprofit Wounded Warrior Project.—Renée Olson
