About 12 to 15 people were reported injured at the Tough Mudder competition Saturday, a Berkeley County 911 supervisor said Sunday night. The supervisor said two people were feared drowned, but they were resuscitated. The supervisor said she did not believe there were as many injuries at the event on Sunday. The course ran over about 500 acres of the 2,300 acres at the Peacemaker National Training Center that Tough Mudder officials rented for the event. Each of the 22 obstacles had its own identity and names such as Mud Mile No. 1, Trench Warfare, Berlin Walls, Funky Monkey and, at the finish line, Electroshock Therapy.
