Under Armour collaborates with Tough Mudder challenge series
On occasion of the Tough Mudder event series in Germany (July until October 2014), Under Armour sent some photos from the parcours with participants in performance wear (clothing, shoes, accessories) by the US label which was founded 1996 by former football player Kevin Plank with t-shirts that provided compression. For the challenge, Under Armour has developed special pieces such as a tank for women with the writing 'It's time to get dirty', t-shirts (writing on men's shirt 'I Will'), leggings, shorts and trail running shoes.
The 16 - 18 kilometre parcours (for women and men) is designed in military training camp style with obstacles like walls to climb, icy water to conquer, mud and underwater courses. Tough Mudder is for the ones who want to test their physical and mental stamina. The first of five Tough Mudder events in Germany will happen in Berlin-Brandenburg on 26 and 27 July (calendar). On 19 June, the organizers announced that 10.000 to 12.000 people will participate at each of the events in Germany. Next year 2015, nine Tough Mudder challenges will be held in Germany.
