In The Rough

"For the Tough Mudder adventure race, we're changing Beaver Creek's slogan from 'Not exactly roughing it' to 'Definitely roughing it,'" says spokeswoman Jen Brown. "This race is hard-core, with obstacles designed by British Special Forces that will challenge you in ways you never thought possible."

That's no understatement: The dozen obstacles along the twelve-mile race route could include the "Arctic Enema," the "Boa Constrictor" and "Electroshock Therapy," among others. Registration is $200 to race on either Saturday or Sunday and includes a T-shirt, a beer, and live music at the after-party. Spectator tickets -- worth every penny -- are available for $20 in advance at or $25 at the event. Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume, Worst Costume, Most Likely to Have Been in the Village People, and -- ahem -- Least Clothing, as well as for Toughest Mullet and Toughest Mohawk: Stop by the BIC 4 Good tent and let them redo your 'do with the new BIC Flex4 Razor, and the company will donate $4 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
