Tough Mudder

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by the 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. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running Tough Mudder, 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.

FACT #1- Marathons are 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 the 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 mud runs are more stressful than fun. Not Tough Mudder. At Tough Mudder, we meet you at the finish line with a pint and a 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 absurd 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.

Murray S Tough Mudder Tribe

Contributorgold Murray S In the pre-dawn darkness of World's Toughest Mudder 2013, two-time defending champion Junyong Pak (right) was in 2nd place. With thousands of dollars at stake and a title to defend, Pak stood atop Everest and found a fellow Mudder exhausted; struggling to reach the summit. The picture shows what he did. Totally sums up what being a mudder is all about.

Tracey V Tough Mudder Tribe

Contributorbronze Tracey V I signed up to be informed when my local toughmudder (Yorkshire, UK) opens for registration for summer next year. I fully intend to do it, joining this tribe should help discourage me from quitting before I begin!


Thanks, I find that telling people you're going to do something is a really good way of making sure you do it, cheers for the encouragement :-)
