2018 Camping, Happy Hour & Briefing
We are very excited to announce that for the first time EVER, we will be opening up the option of Friday night camping at World’s Toughest Mudder. No longer will you have to set up your pit area and leave the night before without experiencing the stars in the sky and the fellow camaraderie between other Mudders. There will only be 400 spaces available with a maximum of 3 people per pit space for camping, so don’t wait, act fast. When purchasing a camping space, a participant will have the option to add up to 2 additional campers in their space at $15 a head.
In addition, Course and Obstacle briefings will be taking place in the pit area at three different times throughout the day. Briefings will be at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm to accommodate the Community Dinner that is happening later that night. With this change, if you have already purchased dinner tickets for Friday before the event, we will be providing you with a FREE beer and food token which can be used on-site during this time.
The Team Relay category will be the same as last year’s National Team Relay category with one major update - no more “National” requirement. Any group of 4 can participate in this category. If a team does wish to declare a nationality they may still do so (they’ll get a unique bib to rep their country too), but it is no longer a requirement. The Team Relay competition will be teams of 4 who have the option to rest half their team while the other half runs. The first and last lap of the event will have to be done all together, but all laps in between must be completed only by a minimum of 2 athletes at a time, allowing the other 2 teammates to rest. Team Relay competitors can register here and must do so by October 1, 2018.

History of World's Toughest Mudder
In 2011, World’s Toughest Mudder was created with one simple goal in mind; to find and challenge the toughest endurance athletes in the world. The format was set at a 24 hour, lap based course, to see who could complete the most laps within a 24 hour period. Each lap features the full set of signature Tough Mudder obstacles + a unique mix of obstacles designed specifically for World’s Toughest Mudder athletes. The first event was held in Englishtown, New Jersey in below freezing conditions where hundreds of athletes from around the globe turned up to compete. The conditions were harsh, but the competition was fierce and a new kind of sport was born. Along with it, a strong community of dedicated World’s Toughest Mudders turned it into an annual passion. From 2011 to 2013, the event remained in New Jersey, building new obstacles and new challenges into the format year after year. In 2013, Ryan Atkins broke the 100-mile-mark for the first time -- a feat most thought was impossible. In 2014 World’s Toughest Mudder moved from the raceway to the desert outside Las Vegas, Nevada where it remained until 2017. In 2018, World’s Toughest Mudder will take place in Fairburn, Georgia.
