Tough Mudder is an obstacle course challenge designed to test participants’ overall strength, stamina and teamwork. Tough Mudder places great value in promoting camaraderie throughout the course and designing obstacles that encourage group participation. Tough Mudder Weekend will feature a long and short format Tough Mudder and Tougher Mudder event running concurrently on Saturday and Sunday of event weekend. Each event will feature approximately 25 obstacles, as well as scenic trail routes and challenging course terrain unique to Tough Mudder.
World's Toughest Mudder is an annual twenty-four hour, five-mile circuit race peppered with twenty to twenty-five of Tough Mudder’s biggest, best 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 $10,000,000 in total economic impact and brings significant media exposure to the host community.
