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.

    • U.K. Man Becomes First Tetraplegic to Complete Tough Mudder Challenge

      Rob Camm always wanted to compete in the grueling Tough Mudder race, and after training for the last few months he was able to do just that. The only difference between Camm and the rest of the athletes is a C3 spinal injury that’s left him paralyzed from the neck down. Read more on The Mighty.

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, AU and CAN venues don't allow tattoos on-site, so you'll need to find a local establishment that can oblige.
