5 Miles. 13 Obstacles. 1 Extraordinary Experience.
Escape the ordinary with Tough Mudder Half Twin Cities Presented by Merrell. Tough Mudder Half isn’t a race - it’s the best 5-mile mud obstacle course challenge on the planet (with no ice or electricity). It’s a community of 2 million strong who’ve already found camaraderie on the course and in the mud...and it’s your first step toward warrior status. With the help of your fellow Twin Cities Mudders, you’ll overcome our highest-rated obstacles, adrenaline-pumping challenges...and the little voice in your head that says “you can’t.”
We've also lowered our minimum age to 14 - so you can get muddy with the whole family.
