The action-packed race features competitors from various disciplines, providing a true battle among all participants.

Highlighting the field is 3-time Men’s Champion Ryan Atkins, who will be competing in the team event this year, alongside his wife, Lindsay Webster, Ryan Woods, and Brian Gowiski. On the men’s side, 2016 Champion Trevor Cichosz and long-time Tough Mudder competitor Kristopher Mendoza will be battling it out for the top spot on the podium, as well as military veteran, Dancing with the Stars competitor and adaptive athlete, Noah Galloway. The elite women’s field will feature another epic duel between last year’s champion, Rea Kolbl, and last year’s runner-up, Allison Tai.
In addition to watching the athletes show their skills, CBS will give viewers a sneak peek of the new and updated obstacles for the 2019 Tough Mudder season, which debuted for the first time at World’s Toughest Mudder.
