Pit Crew & Spectator Pricing
World’s Toughest Mudder® is the culminating event of the Tough Mudder® global calendar, and takes the concept of being a Tough Mudder to a whole new level. Designed to push Mudders℠ to their physical and mental limits, this extreme competition puts the world’s most hardcore Mudders through a grueling 24-hour obstacle challenge with double the obstacles per mile of any other Tough Mudder event.
Unlike any other Tough Mudder event, World’s Toughest Mudder is a competition, with three official categories designed to find the toughest man, woman, and 4+ person team on the planet, plus cash prizes and other awards up for grabs, including an award for the largest World's Toughest Mudder team.
But more than a competition, WTM is the unofficial end-of-year gathering of Mudder Legion. As TM's only truly global event, it offers both the opportunity for regular Tough Mudder teams to come together to face the most challenging of all Mudder events, while also offers the chance to meet and become friends with Mudders from around the world.
For the first time this year, TMHQ will also be trialing a program of team formation for those who want to run with others but do not yet have a team; more information on this can be found on the registration page. At WTM, teamwork and camaraderie are prized above all, as new and old friendships are forged as another year of mud, fire, ice, and electric shocks is put into the books.

Located 35 minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip (the event’s first major obstacle is leaving the partying until afterwards), and just 30 minutes from Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport (LAS), Lake Las Vegas is an ideal venue for the 2014 World’s Toughest Mudder. The site contains several hundred acres of rolling desert landscape and runs alongside a massive freshwater lake. Several natural terrain features and use of the lake will be incorporated into the WTM course design. Temperatures are also expected to fluctuate significantly between day and night.
WTM 2014 is a 5-mile circuit race with 20-25 of Tough Mudder’s insane obstacles, including the debut of new 2015 obstacles and a handful of WTM only obstacles, at a rate of 4 obstacles per mile. Participants set up camp in an area called “The Pit” in order to rest, recharge and refuel during the event – aided by up to 2 “Pit Crew” per participant (see below). When it’s over, the event winners will be the man, woman and team (4+) that achieve the most laps in a 24-hour period between 10:00:00am, November 15th, 2014 and 10:00:00am November 16th, 2014 (participants then will be given until 12:00:00pm to finish their final lap). For more information, please see the "official rules" below.
Before you consider entering World’s Toughest Mudder®, you must understand this event will push you to your limits and beyond. Only those who are in top physical condition, maintain (or are willing to initiate) a regular workout regime - and most of all who have completed multiple Tough Mudders or events of comparable difficulty - should even consider registering.
Ultimately, however, this event is not about how fast you can run or how much you can lift or having a set of six-pack abs. It is about having the determination, strength, stamina, and mental and physical grit to go 24 hours, alongside the most hardcore Mudders on the planet, and beyond what you ever thought you would be able to accomplish. Whether your goal is 25 miles (nearly 1/3 of the field), 50 miles, or 75 and beyond, those who register for this event must be prepared to put in a lot of hard work before event day. Because when it comes to World’s Toughest Mudder, you better show up as the best version of yourself–or not at all. If that sounds like something you want to do, then WTM might be for you. If not, then please type http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com into your web browser and spend your hard-earned dollars there instead. (We hear their new line of duvet covers are just luxurious.)
