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.
So you may have heard of the new way to run Tough Mudder. It occurs downtown, there’s little mud but it’s in no way less awesome. Yep, we’re talking about Tough Mudder 5k. Coming to a venue near you soon but starting in Downtown Nashville. The place of BBQ & country music and now obstacle action.
We have the location, we have the obstacles, now we just need that orange army to bring that energy. That’s right, we’re talking about our MVPs - our volunteers.
Behind every movement is a community of people who passionately push it forward. With the release of Will Dean's first book, Mudder Nation can learn about the faces who've helped build the Tough Mudder tribe since the journey began in 2010. Read on for a personal letter from Will Dean, author and co-founder.

Toughest Mudder Europe brought the wind, rain, and cold–as expected–but Mudders still lived up to their reputation by bringing in close to 1000 participants, with one-third of those completing 25 miles or more. The UK’s own Jonathan Albon completed 10 laps of the five-mile, one-loop course, in 7 hours, 55 minutes while top female, Susanne Krauss completed 35 miles in 8 hours, 10 minutes in the third event of the Toughest Mudder series.
The airmen from Luke Air Force Base are used to physical activity, the desert, and teamwork. This time they decided to combine all of this on their day off. Tough Mudder Arizona was lucky to have a team both volunteer and run from the local air base.

The second of the six Toughest Mudder series went down outside of Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend at Bouckeart Farms. Read on for a full race recap and results.
Held at Bouckeart Farms, 40 minutes from Atlanta, Georgia, and voted best course in North America by mudrunguide.com, boasts some of the best views (which include rolling, green hills, forested trails, and picturesque ponds) and mud east of the Mississippi. The red clay is so thick and so deep that volunteers reportedly had to assist participants out of the mud in 2016.
