Littleton, CO (August 2019) – Sterling Ranch, a 21st century master-planned community providing residents with an innovative and amenity-rich place to call home, welcomed the hugely popular Tough Mudder event to its “wide open spaces” last weekend and it was a tremendous success. Thousands of people gathered to compete on a mud-soaked course of obstacles, along with canine companions who woofed-their-way-through the first ever “Ruff Mudder”. In addition, thousands more people came to cheer on the Mudders and enjoy the beautiful Colorado weekend on Sterling Ranch.
“Everyone had smiles on their faces and the event ran incredibly smoothly thanks in large part to the Tough Mudder event organizers, the residents of Sterling Ranch, the surrounding community, the Douglas County Sherriff’s Office and our entire team at Sterling Ranch,” said Brock Smethills of Sterling Ranch, and a Tough Mudder competitor. “The outdoor, fun, friendly spirit of the event reflects many of the values of Sterling Ranch: a place where people can escape into a joyful, natural, beautiful, quiet setting. We were proud to be selected for the first ever Tough Mudder to take place in the Denver metro area.”
The two days included the Tough Mudder Classic, an 8-10-mile loop of mud-soaked mayhem with 25 best-in-class obstacles, Mini Mudder, a mile-long obstacle course specifically designed for adventure-seeking children, and the new Ruff Mudder, an event for the toughest of pups. Also new this year was a 5K distance. Coupled with a revamped Mudder Village Festival featuring local food, cold beer, live entertainment, lawn games, giveaways and more, the events provided a day of fun for the whole family.
Sterling Ranch added to the festivities with raffles, face painting, music and games. The community’s quality homebuilders -- including TRI Pointe Homes, Lennar, Richmond American Homes, Meritage Homes, Taylor Morrison, Brookfield Residential, Wonderland Homes, Dream Finders and Parkwood Homes – also hosted tours of their model homes and provided promotions of their own.
