Ravens coach John Harbaugh competes in Tough Mudder race

April 21, 2013|By Matt Vensel | The Baltimore Sun

Ravens coach John Harbaugh isn’t sitting idly by waiting for the 2013 NFL draft to roll around on Thursday.

This weekend, Harbaugh and other members of the Ravens organization, including senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne, competed in a Tough Mudder race in Gerrardstown, W.Va.

This short video -- set to ear-rattling heavy metal music, of course -- posted on the team’s official website shows the coach of the reigning Super Bowl champions climbing cargo nets and other obstacles, carrying logs or his teammates, cannon-balling into muddy ponds, swimming under obstacles, and crawling through mud.

You know, if you're into that sort of thing.

Running through a 10-to-12 mile military-style obstacle course, the mud-covered coach was sporting a goatee and wearing a purple Under Armour shirt with the team name, “Sack Lunch,” on the front and the words “I will” on the back.

Oh, and the coach had a message for his players, some of whom have been in town for voluntary offseason workouts.

“The Tough Mudder shoes and shirts are going into everyone's locker, all right?” Harbaugh said, looking into the camera. “Let's hit it. This is minicamp. Let’s go to work, boys.”
