World’s Toughest Mudder is just weeks away. We talked with the race directors of WTM 2018 for a preview of what runners can expect when they show up in Atlanta on November 10th.

Nolan Kombol and Eli Hutchison lead the team that designs World’s Toughest Mudder. They set the course. They choose the obstacles. They control your fate for 24 hours in November. No one knows what to expect at WTM 2018 better than these two men.

Nolan and Eli LAY IT OUT for us in this interview. They start at 14:07.

Do not let anyone else spoil this interview for you.
