Event Overview

Same Awesome Venue, New Course

As high flying as the airport it’s built upon, Tough Mudder Chicago Presented by Merrell is one of our flattest and fastest North American courses.That means it’s easy, right? Wrong. What this course lacks in elevation it makes up for in multiple gauntlets of brand-spankin-new 2016 obstacles.


10 – 12 Miles, 20+ Obstacles

Diverse and dirty, this Windy City sidewinder of a course will take you through sprawling fields, vegetated woodlands and riverside trails.
