Saturday November 9th members of the Lakeside Fire Protection District went up to Temecula on their day off to participate in the 2013 Southern California Tough Mudder held at Vail Lake Resort. The two day event draws more than 20,000 people each year and tests each persons strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.  The courses are 10-12 miles long with 25 military style obstacles with plenty of cold water and plenty of hills to run up.

Aside from giving us the opportunity to participate in this event and become part of the mudder community, The Tough Mudder as raised over $6 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project to date.  The Lakeside team was able to stay together and finish the course in just under 3 hours without any injuries. 

Participants: Matt Buzzell, Dave Ditomaso (Chula Vista PD), Lance Buford, Jerry Daoust, Ian Lowe, Dave Csik, Jose Corona, and Scott Smith
