Nevada County Has Some Tough Mudders

Thousands of people will be testing themselves while also raising money to support injured military veterans.
The 12 mile up hill obstacle course called the Tough Mudder takes place this weekend at NorthStar Ski resort out side of Truckee. Over 15000 athletes will take to the mountain and complete the challenge which includes at least 19 major obstacles. Nevada County Fire Captain, Josh Sunde, is competing with a team of Nevada County firefighters and one firefighter’s wife.
