Zombies vs. Tough Mudders

I have a dilemma.  I want to do a short obstacle race this year, but can’t decide if I want to do the Run For Your Life zombie race in December or the Tough Mudder in October.  Here are my musings about the pros and cons of each race.

Tough Mudder:

someecards.com - If I ever had to run for my life, I would probably die.

  • As a mother of two small children I have to censor myself all day, so I like that the race name sounds like cursing.
  • I hear mud is  good for your skin.
  • You get to jump over fire.  That’s badass


  • It’s in Houston
  • I’m scared of the obstacles

Zombie Run:

someecards.com - Happy Halloween to someone I trust not to leave me for dead during a zombie apocalypse
Pros –

  • Zombies
  • It’s in Austin
  • Zombies, right?

Cons –

  • It’s in December.  It seems like Halloween blending into Christmas.

What are your thoughts?  Have you run either of these races?

  1. I ran “Run for Your Lives” and loved it! It’s still got obstacles and was a lot more physically challenging than the Warrior Dash because you’re pacing yourself with the obstacles etc but then have to sprint from the zombies. I had a blast.

  2. I would go for the Tough Mudder because December can be so cold where you live. October is still a nice Autumn temperature. And yes, it’s so close to Christmas as well the other one.
