    What is Infinite Hero Challenge? with Evan Perperis

    One of the newest offerings from Tough Mudder is the "Infinite Hero Challenge". Infinite Hero Challenge is a new team-based way to explore the Tough Mudder course with challenges and obstacles that you won't face on a normal Tough Mudder course.
    Evan Perperis is the man behind the program for Tough Mudder. He joins us to talk about how the event came about, what people can expect, and the differences between Infinite Hero Challenge and Tough Mudder Infinity.
    The last time Evan was on the show it got a little spicy. We talk about how relationships have mended and lessons learned from that episode.

Thank you!

Will great podcast. I’m shooting to run WTM 2022. Need to lose all the COVID weight and build up to it. I really appreciate the advice, special guests and overall motivation you provide. Keep it up! - Noel

Missing WTM

I’ve run WTM four times, am not going this year, but I still listen to the podcast because I love it! This last episode was awesome and made me miss that I’m not going to WTM this year even more. Keep up the great work, and thanks for helping me to get my WTM fix.

Stellar!

Will Hicks has a voice tailor-made for podcasts (in the same ballpark as the great Ryen Russillo). His personality and charisma shine like Sirius A. Keep bringing the quality content my dude. Appreciate you!
