I did it in my KSOs...they were awesome! especially when i saw people struggling with waterlogged sneakers after getting out of the lake.

@megan: Ditto! I kept thinking: Nope, no added weight here. ;)

Thanks for sharing - pretty motivational. I just got my Bikila's thru a birthdayshoes link (CitySports Boston) and I am transitioning right now with the ultimate goal of doing the Nov Tough Mudder in Englishtown, NJ in them. But alas, no thong. Don't need that kind of attention.

Although usually a strength athlete (powerlifting and weightlifting) I've decided to run the October Tough Mudder. I googled Vibram Tough Mudder to see if anyone was using them for it. Alas. Good. I will too. Thanks for the report.

I ran a Warrior Dash in mine and my toes kept slipping out as soon as I went through muddy water. Besides that they were great.

Did you run with the five finger socks on?

I'm an enormous fan of my Vibram KSO's and wear them virtually every where for every workout be it running or crossfit, (actually wearing them right now) I am entering the Tough Mudder as well and the only thing I'm worried about is the "Fire Walker" obstacle. Did anyone have any trouble with this, (singeing or melting)?

ran in my NB Minimuses at the Squaw Valley Tough Mudder today, and it was brutal...
No problems with traction or staying wet, but the entire course was sharp rocks. Feel like my feet were beaten... Sat down at one point to empty gravel out of them, and another Minimus wearer and a Five Fingers wearer sat down with me to do the same. I asked, and they were equally miserable.

Of course, YMMV. I love my Minimuses for the track or street or park... But never again broken surfaces.

I'm going to be doing Tough Mudder in the UK (May 2012) and was wondering how my Vibrams would do. I mostly run properly barefoot these days but as tough as I pretend to be be, doing TM barefoot is not an option I choose. After reading your post I'm convinced that my Vibrams are the way forward and I'm not going to sell out and wear 'proper' running shoes.
Thanks for the info.

Awesome read! Makes me even more amped to try the Mudder after I get to my first command. Questions though about your VFF's--

What ONE feature did you enjoy about them while doing the Mudder? Was there a feature you thought was lacking in your pair, or could have been added/ improved?

These shoes used in the Tough Mudder race - are these the trek version with the more agressive sole or were they the standard flows with the soother sole. Looking to buy a barefoot shoe for the winter as the soother sole version is still about but no longer in production.
