Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $3 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days.

OverviewProbably the Toughest Event on the Planet, Worldwide locations
Events(35) 2012, (70) 2013
Distances10-12 miles
Signature ObstacleEverest, a slicked half-pipe that participants have to scale.
Hardest ObstacleThat depends on you. If the last time you swam involved bubbles, then the water obstacles might do you in. If you have hallucinations of a terrible death in small spaces, well then some obstacles may leave you rocking in a corner sucking your thumb. Rest assured, we are always looking for new ways to root out your weaknesses and exploit.
PenaltiesNope. If plunging 15 feet into freezing cold water in Walk the Plank isn’t up your alley or running through live wires in Electroshock Therapy isn’t your idea of a good time, then that's up to you - especially if you can't swim or have a heart condition. (We don't, after all, get the same satisfaction when Mudders get hurt.) But not to fear, there are plenty of other ways for us to ruthlessly pound you into submission.
  • Shoes – normal running shoes [Our recommendation: inov-8 – MudRoc 290 (Black/Grey) – Footwear]. Cleats won’t help – in fact they’ll be worse on your feet and are dangerous for the other participants.
  • Clothes – lightweight stuff that dries quickly. Even if it’s a cold day, heavy or thick clothing will just retain water and make you colder. You should also bring a change of clothes for after the event so you can enjoy the post party.
  • Gloves – this one is more debatable. Some people swear by them, others prefer to go glove-less (faster drying). If you go with gloves, be sure to grab tough, thick ones to prevent burns from the ropes and splinters from the walls. Two good options are The Original Mud Gloves or the Under Armour Utility Glove

FACT #1 – Marathon running is boring.
And the only thing more boring than doing a marathon is watching a marathon. Road-running may give you a healthy set of lungs, but will leave you with as much upper body strength as Keira Knightley. At Tough Mudder, we want to test your all-around mettle, not just your ability to run in a straight line, on your own, for hours on end, getting bored out of your mind. Our obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test you in every way and are meant only for truly exceptional all-around people, not for people who have enough time and money to train their knees to run 26 miles.

FACT #2 – Mudders do not take themselves too seriously.
Triathlons, marathons, and other lame-ass mud runs are more stressful than fun. Not Tough Mudder. As hardcore as our courses are, we meet you at the finish line with a beer, a laugh, and a rockin’ live band. It’s pretty hard to take yourself seriously when you’re covered in mud and have just finished an obstacle called ‘Just The Tip’, so please don’t show up at a Tough Mudder without a sense of humor. Just check out the ridiculous team costumes in our event photos to get a feel for the spirit of Tough Mudder.

FACT #3 – You cannot complete a Tough Mudder course alone.
To get through mud, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity you’ll need teammates to pick you up when your spirits dip. To get over 12 foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Tough Mudders are team players who make sure no one gets left behind. To that end, all Mudders are expected to uphold our ideals and exhibit teamwork and camaraderie both on the course and off it. All participants are asked to join us in reciting the Tough Mudder pledge before starting each event.
