Tough Mudder weekend in Mansfield is deemed a big success, especially by the man whose job is to attract visitors to Richland County.

Convention and Visitor's Bureau President Lee Tasseff says upwards of 15,000 competitors and spectactors came from numerous states, and filled the hotels and restaurants.

He says hotels that would be at 60% capacity on a normal April weekend had every room filled, and restaurants such as Chipotle and Outback reported record sales for the weekend.  Others were so full, people could not get in. 

Tasseff says most of the activity was in Ontario, where people parked at the former General Motors plant and the Richland Mall and took shuttle buses to the event, but the entire county felt the impact.

He says gas stations also did a good business, when it was time for the visitors to head home.

And he believes they left with a good impression of this area.  He also says Tough Mudder officials were pleased with the way the community embraced the event, and plan to come back.

Tasseff believes the estimated $2-million economic impact will be accurate, although it will take about a week to calculate.
