Important Event InfoAre you the toughest Mudder in the Midwest? This is your chance to prove it. 8 overnight hours. Five-mile course. Seemingly endless event-specific obstacles and all the mud and tough a Mudder could ever ask for. Toughest Mudder Midwest is your proving ground, with big-time prizes and a bid for a spot on course at World’s Toughest Mudder 2018 on the line.
But that’s just the start. The Koenig Sand & Gravel course is full of opportunity for the mad minds at TMHQ. The varied terrain at this event includes lakes, hills, ponds, meadows, and, of course, heaping helpings of sand, gravel, and skinned knees. If you wanna overcome the Koenig grit, you better come to Toughest Mudder Midwest packing some serious grit of your own.
