Kicking off at midnight on Saturday and going into Sunday, these 8 overnight hours of mud and obstacles are so tough and so extreme you'll beg your teammates to remind you why you signed up in the first place. Toughest Mudder is the overnight obstacle course designed to push your team to their limits. And for those who want to take it one step further, the event series will act as a qualifier to make it into the Contender Category at World's Toughest Mudder.
Strap in. It's gonna be a bit bumpy. Don't let the flat terrain at Chicago Rockford International Airport fool you–there's turbulence ahead. This sprawling course is chock full of wooded areas and river-fed obstacles. Forget tray tables, keeping yourself in an upright and locked position won't be easy.
