Electrical Shock at Obstacle Course Race
« on: July 07, 2014, 07:02:13 PM »

I just read about 3 competitors getting electrical shocks at a huge obstacle course race.

This report from a sports medical doctor.

That's crazy. Let's find the organizer and send him some links about electrocution deaths.

So usually a tough mudder has an obstacle that has hanging wires energized by some sort of taser type device.  You wouldn't catch me doing one of those, but then again if I'm running somewhere chances are you should run too....

I think pyro-techs say "If you see me running, try to keep up".
