Event Overview

Tough Mudder’s monster of the midway is arguably the world’s most amphibious challenge. Meandering through rugged trails, in and out of bone-chilling ponds and over a rushing creek, this course will soak you in both water and sweat. Add our mind-numbing obstacles to the mix and one thing’s for certain: this Windy City sidewinder will blow you away.

      When I hit the fourth electrified wire, the shock knocked me off my feet. I received my fifth electrocution as I fell, tumbling into another live wire right before landing face-first in the mud. I crawled out from under the wires — the final hurdle before the finish line of the 2014 Los Angeles Tough Mudder obstacle course — thinking just one thing: Did I actually sign up for this? ...

Event Photos

Our photographers will be out on the course taking action shots of you and your teammates. They'll be capturing the good, the bad and the ugly. We make you mark your bib number on your face and an arm or leg. How else are you going to find your picture when you're caked in mud?

Tough Mudder Tattoos

Many Mudders like to get a tattoo of our logo to commemorate their achievement. We think this is great, so once you get inked, fill out a tattoo registration entry form to get free entry into a Tough Mudder event of your choice. Please note: our UK and AU venues don't allow tattoos on-site, so you'll need to find a local establishment that can oblige.
