This weekend we’re in Doswell, Virginia at the Meadow Event Park to setup truss features for Tough Mudder. Tough Mudder is an endurance event series in which participants attempt 10 to 12 mile-long (16–19 km) military-style obstacle courses. It was designed and created by two British Harvard Business post-graduates and tests mental as well as physical strength. The main principle of the Tough Mudder revolves around teamwork. The folks over at Tough Mudder contacted us and asked us to build a truss feature for participants to climb. We’re a lighting and sound company, so we are used to putting lights on the truss!
The design of the truss feature was given to us by Tough Mudder, and it was pretty simple. other than the four 45 Degree pieces of 20.5″ Truss that we don’t own, and couldn’t find anywhere to rent. We had to ship some in from Atlanta in order to get the job done! This is a first for us, but not the last time we’ll be working in the mud with these guys.
