WHY TOUGH MUDDER?

FACT #1: MARATHONS ARE BORING And the only thing more boring than doing a marathon is watching a marathon. 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.

FACT #2: WE LAUGH THROUGH THE PAIN As hardcore as our courses are, there are plenty of reasons to smile. It’s hard to take yourself seriously when you’re covered in mud doing an obstacle called ‘Just The Tip’. Show up with a sense of humor.

FACT #3: YOU CAN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN To get through mud, ice and 10,000 volts of electricity, you’ll need teammates to pick you up when your spirits dip. We expect all Mudders to exhibit teamwork and camaraderie both on and off the course.
