A Tough Mudder event weekend consists of Tough Mudder, a 10 – 12 mi. obstacle course challenge designed to test participants’ strength, stamina, teamwork, and mental grit; Tough Mudder Half, a 5 mi. obstacle course that maintains the thrills of Tough Mudder in half the distance; Tougher Mudder, a competitive take on the signature Tough Mudder course that allows participants’ to push themselves while still maintaining core values of teamwork and camaraderie; and Mini Mudder, a 1 mi. obstacle course designed for children. Tough Mudder events typically draw 10,000 to 20,000 visitors over event weekend and generate an average of $5,000,000 - $10,000,000 in total economic impact.
World's Toughest Mudder 2017 is an annual twenty-four hour, five-mile circuit race peppered with twenty to twenty-five of Tough Mudder’s biggest, baddest obstacles, including never before seen obstacles at a rate of four obstacles per mile. While this event, unlike a regular Tough Mudder event, has winners, it does not have losers. World’s Toughest Mudder is a challenge that celebrates the worldwide obstacle course community, as well as Mudder Nation. Each year, World’s Toughest Mudder generates an average of $15,000,000 in total economic impact and brings significant media exposure to the host community through Tough Mudder’s current partnership with CBS and CBS Sports.
