From The Atlantic:
"... the Bush administration put forth a very narrow definition, arguing that for an action to be deemed torture, it must produce suffering “equivalent in intensity to the pain accompanying serious physical injury, such as organ failure, impairment of bodily function, or even death.” To place this in perspective: the administration’s threshold for when an act of torture begins was the point at which the Inquisition stipulated that it must stop."

Is Tough Mudder the same as other events out there like Muddy Buddy or Warrior Dash?
No. Muddy Buddy and Warrior Dash are both great events and really fun days out, but Tough Mudder is a very different proposition. Our events are three times as long, take place in hostile environments, often at altitude, and are a significant physical and mental challenge. Completing a Tough Mudder requires camaraderie and a degree of toughness that other mud-runs will not even begin to test.
