Tough Mudder Mid-Atlantic 2013 Incident

Mudder Nation,

This morning, we received confirmation from the Berkeley Sheriff's Department that a participant passed away following an accident at this past weekend's Tough Mudder Mid-Atlantic event. We are devastated by this loss and extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. The compassion shown by the wider Tough Mudder community for the individual and his loved ones has been deeply moving.

Thank you, and be well, Mudders.

RIP Avishek Sengupta.  I hope we figure out how to prevent such things in the future, maybe by slowing down Walk the Plank and making sure people surface before others jump in.

Walk the plan is a little hectic and the volunteers keep yelling to go. I definitely think that one needs to be slowed down to give people a chance to clear. Even if you get a backlog of people.

Prayers are with the family.

Is that what happened? Someone landed on him?

  • @Matt Hensler,
    I heard that was what happened from someone on the event staff after Sunday's run, but I haven't been able to confirm that anywhere on a news report or even on social media.

    God bless Avishek and his family and friends.
