Event Overview

Same Awesome Venue, New Course

One of North America’s sloppiest courses, Tough Mudder Central Texas’ landscape is as diverse and challenging as the obstacles that stand upon it.

10 – 12 Miles, 18 – 20 Obstacles

Built upon dirt bike trails, creeks, fields, woodlands and swamps of all shapes and sizes, you’re going to need to take your training off the treadmill to tackle this course.



Create a team of friends, family and co-workers or run solo and let all of Mudder Nation be your team. As Tough Mudder is a team-centric event focused on camaraderie over course time, most Mudders choose to recruit a team to make event day more fun and help them through the obstacles. You can form a team before or after you register. Click here to learn how to create and manage your team.


Redefine team building by getting out of the conference room and into the mud with Tough Mudder Corporate Team Packages. If you’re looking to bond your team in the most unconventionally awesome way possible, running a Tough Mudder as a team is a surefire way to do it.


Make your Tough Mudder experience even more memorable by running and raising for a cause. Fundraise for a charity of your choosing by setting up a fundraising page and sharing it with everyone you know today. We’ve also expanded our tough mudder charity family, providing you the chance to run for free and raise for the cause of your choice.

Just like in a sports stadium, Tough Mudder spectators and fans energize our Mudders-- that’s why we offer discounted tickets for spectators who register before event day. Encourage Mudders as they muster the courage to run through 10,000 volts of electricity at Electroshock Therapy. Explore and enjoy our action-packed base area featuring music, refreshments, sponsor activations and exclusive Mudder Village obstacles for both participants and spectators to try out. This year, being a spectator at Tough Mudder is now nearly as exciting as running one.


Tough Mudder ain’t just for adults anymore. This year, every course in the US, UK and Ireland will feature a Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder obstacle course, a one-mile kid-friendly obstacle course for children aged 7 to 12 and 42 inches tall and over.

Mini Mudder gives children a chance to test their fitness and team-building skills just like a real Tough Mudder. On course, kids will shimmy their way through Secret Agent Squeeze, trounce through Tunnel of Terror and try to stay in their shoes at Gooey Shoes. Once they conquer all the obstacles, they’ll earn a Mini Mudder headband to wear with pride, just like the real thing.

Children who meet the height and age requirements may participate with the purchase of a Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder Spectator ticket. The ticket will also grant access to the additional amenities in the Mini Mudder Village. And oh, yes: Don’t forget their sneakers and a change of clothes.

In recognition of all our Fruit Shoot Mini Mudders in 2016 we will make a donation to Right To Play to help educate children around the world.
