Mudder Volunteer Program


Join Probably the Best Team on the Planet

Are you awesome at helping others conquer their challenges? Then we want you to join our team as a Tough Mudder Volunteer. Our Volunteers are called Mudder MVPs (Most Valuable Players) because they are the driving force behind our team on event day.

As the premier obstacle course in the world, we have something for everyone who wants to volunteer, from setting up the event site, being the first to greet thousands of Mudders, cheering them on as they jump into a dumpster full of ice, putting those hard-earned headbands on Mudders or joining our industry leading medical team. Whatever you do as a Mudder MVP, you’ll be at the heart of it all, creating life-changing experiences for everyone – including yourself.

This is one of the best ways to find out more about Tough Mudder, support your friends or family and earn an amazing discount to take to the course yourself and redefine your year.

The volunteers could make you smile while you're hauling butt up a mountain––legs burning.
