What is Tough Mudder?

Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course consisting of mud and obstacles built to test your mental grit, camaraderie and all-around physical fitness. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a race but a team challenge – no winner, no finisher medal, no clock to race against—just an ice cold beer and a few good scrapes from a day spent outside and free from everyday bullshit.

We are for anyone who has ever followed their gut, tried to defy gravity, chosen “dare” over “truth,” taken risks, sought thrills, or is generally awesome at life. Turns out, it’s all been training. We are Tough Mudder.

The Mudder Pledge

  • We understand that Tough Mudder is not a race but a challenge.
  • We put teamwork and camaraderie before our course time.
  • We do not whine – kids whine.
  • We help our fellow mudders complete the course.
  • We overcome all fears.

Here Are the Facts:

FACT #1 – It's fun. Real fun.

Bring your friends. Bring your family members. Bring that dude in your office that always shows you photos of his cat. The more the merrier. Tough Mudder is not a race, it’s a teamwork-oriented challenge that puts camaraderie over course time.

FACT #3 – Finishing feels THAT good.

“Euphoria” is one word people often use to describe finishing. “Ecstasy” is another. Participating in a team event like Tough Mudder gets people in shape and out of their routines and comfort zones.

FACT #2 – You can do it. Seriously.

With the right amount of training and preparation, you can complete a Tough Mudder. At the start line all Mudders pledge to help their fellow Mudders complete the course and leave no Mudder behind. You are no exception to that rule.

FACT #4 – It gets you pumped up.

Once you sign up for a Tough Mudder, it’s time to start training. Tough Mudder isn’t just about event day, it’s about your entire Mudder journey–from the adrenaline rush of committing to the glory of that finish line beer.

Tough Mudder Nashville

Sep 20, 2018 by Patrick

the sign up process and when and what to do where at is a little confusing and really needs to be streamlined with details. this was our first one, so this may change next time, but it was more difficult than it needed to be. other than that, IT WAS AWESOME. Had an amazing time with my wife and we got one hell of a workout. highly recommend.


Sep 08, 2018 by Olivia Eperthener

It was a great time. Aside from the fact it was $20 to park and our family had to pay $25 per person to watch. Even my 4 year old daughter. Then $10 per bag.Im trying to get my family involved in an active life style and teach my daughter she can do anything. Plus we were told a free beer and that was a lie to. They gave an amazing speech about team work before the ran. But missed that and where just trying to make a dime.


Spectator Ticket is a Sham

Sep 06, 2018 by Alex C

Don't waste your money on a spectator ticket! You get absolutely nothing and tickets aren't needed even though the website states you must have a spectator ticket to attend. This was not true.

Upon arriving and literally walking up to the obstacles to spectate (absolutely no ticket needed!!!), I was determined to learn what my $20 ticket was for and went extremely out of my way just to get my ticket scanned. Turns out the ticket is for nothing except a bogus wristband that's never checked. Total sham.

I contacted Tough Mudder for a refund, but their customer support was terrible. They simple insisted that a wristband was required and I attended the event so they weren't refunding. A wristband wasn't required and the spectator ticket was a joke. Nothing but a money grab. Don't waste your money!


2018 Chicago Tough Mudder

Aug 29, 2018 by John

This event was a complete money grab. Huge disappointment! The registration process was a nightmare. The event itself contained a fraction of the obstacles they used to have in regards to quality. The consolidation of the race into loops made for a horrible participant and spectator experience. As a participant the repetition was extremely unsatisfying and boring. Running the same stretches was a disgrace and repeating obstacles was almost pointless. As a spectator the shear amount of confusion and disorganization was disrespectful. Finally, the event has turned into a walking lollygag where actual runners find themselves weaving and bobbing through hordes of walking buckets of lard. Looking for a different event like Spartan going forward.


Absolutely terrible experience for spectators

Mar 29, 2018 by Jon

I was a spectator that went to cheer on my wife, who was participating in a team as a bachelorette party. While I cannot comment on this event as a participant, I can say that the experience from a spectator was absolutely terrible. Not only did they charge us over $20 just to enter the grounds, there were no signs in directing us to spectator parts of the course, the maps were absolutely useless, and the staff/volunteers were even more clueless than me about times and directions (apparently, the organizers decided to change the course path and starting times without informing anyone else). I was spectating with my infant son, and while trying to figure out where I was and how to reach a spectator position to cheer on my wife, the weather turned for the worse, and I asked to go into a heated tent so my son could warm up a little bit, since there were no buildings around. I was met with some smart-ass attendant that not only denied me access to the tent, but went on to blame me for bringing my son to the event in the first place!

I have never experienced a more disorganized, disrespectful, and blantantly money-grabbing event in my life. Up yours, Tough Mudder. You will never scam another cent out of me again.

try one, you'll like it

Sep 13, 2017 by John Jeffcoat

2017 Chicago Tough Mudder was a very well run event. This 10.5 mile course was extremely flat, so participation numbers were high. From the moment you pull up at the venue, there are volunteers guiding you and directing traffic. Tough Mudder always has numerous water stations, as well as bananas & energy bars on the course. I've read reviews on this site complaining about Tough Mudder being a "money grab", but I think you get what you pay for. In my opinion, their courses are put together much better, and races are more organized than any other of the race brands that I have run. I would highly recommend trying a Tough Mudder, if you are ok with the 10 to 12 mile distances.


Too much about the money

Event: TM London West - 6 May
Pros: atmophere, scenery, course length, professional obstacle construction quality, funky monkey and arctic enema were great fun
Cons: far too 'monetized'. Event price high and still have to pay for parking and bag drop. MAIN CON: some obstacles were reserved for Legionnaires, so if it's your first time, expect to be turned away from some of the best looking obstacles (not exactly motivating when you have traveled across borders to get there)
Wont be doing one again due to this fact. They heavily market and advertize, then when you get there, 'sorry, this obstacle's not for you, why not come again next year and you can try it'


May 05, 2017 by Jason

This was my first Tough Mudder and I have to say my coworkers and I had a great time. The obstacles were spaced far apart, but no complaints here. We will definitely do this again next year.


May 23, 2016 by Ben

The course was great (much better than last years spot). The obstacles were pretty good and the lines weren't that bad. Appreciated that they closed some roads to allow traffic and parking. HUGE disappointment goes to the bag check. It was non existent!! They had some guy there, but he couldn't have been bothered to check to make sure folks were taking their own bags. That is something that needs to change now! You can't charge for checked bags and not supply any type of security.

Other than that it was a good time.
