Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
You ask, we answer! Here's Everything you need to know about your Tough Mudder start time.
Will start times be enforced?
Yes, you will need to run at the time you have been given. Your start time will be sent approximately 10 days before the event day. No need to bring proof – your start time will be linked to your ticket, so make sure to bring a printed or digital copy of your ticket and your photo ID.
After being inundated with the wacky, the crazy and some of the most innovative ideas we have ever seen our judges have decided on a winner. Our team of obstacle experts from the Tough Mudder Innovation Lab took into account the overall design along with their innovation, improvement to existing concepts and how realistic each design was (sharks in water pits are hard for us to make happen).
The Mangles - Mike Chandler
So with no further ado, the winner of the 2019 competition is The Mangles by Mike Chandler.
We received so many crazy obstacles ideas in this year's Obstacle Design Competition that we needed to give our judges extra time to consider all the different submissions. So while they are deliberating, we thought we would check out the 10 wildest entries we received this year:
Forward Progress - Jeremy Kaufmann
Last year TMHQ made a commitment to putting obstacle innovation back at the heart of everything we do, that means talking about out-of-the-box obstacles ideas, on-course upgrades, and mid-year surprises all year round.
The big brains have been drawing on the walls again but there's only one way to truly find out if an obstacle can work IRL and that's alpha testing.
1. You can enter as many different obstacle designs as you like whilst the submissions period is open.
2. For a submission to be considered, it must consist of both an image of the design and a brief description of how the obstacle works.
3. Submissions will be accepted until 23:59 on 30 August (EST).
4. Submissions are open to anyone age 18+ globally, excluding employees of Tough Mudder or their relatives.
5. The winner will be chosen by a panel of experts at TMHQ. The judges’ decision is final.
The journey to the Holy Grail is the ultimate Tough Mudder challenge, with participants taking on Tougher, Toughest and World’s Toughest Mudder in just one year. For anyone, this is an incredible achievement but there is one member of the community that we feel deserves special recognition.
