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.
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.
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.
CHARLIE'S HOLY GRAIL STORY
We couldn’t be more psyched for the start of the 2019 Tough Mudder season, kicking off in Los Angeles on April 6th and 7th.
Check out all the details on what to expect on site from Tough Mudder in 2019, follow along all weekend on our Tough Mudder social channels, and keep reading below for all the opening weekend, LA-specific goods in store for you:
We teamed up with Openfit to create the ultimate training program and you can join 4-time Tough Mudder Champ Hunter McIntyre at Tough Mudder LA.
Tough Mudder Classic is a return to our badass roots. In 2019 we’ll be testing your strength and mental grit over an 8-10 mile course featuring 25 obstacles—more per mile than ever before—including 10 new or updated 2019 obstacles.
Tough Mudder Classic will give you the chance to get outside your comfort zone to see just what you’re made of. This is one finish line you’ll cross stronger than when you started. Ready for the challenge?
When we launched Tough Mudder Revolution we promised a return to form and a double-down on obstacle innovation. Since then we've started to test new aspects of obstacles (Alpha Tests) in Germany, the UK and the US, asking Mudders globally to try new things and give their feedback.
This was only the beginning. We can now reveal that the first round of obstacle Beta Testing has also taken place on an undisclosed date, at a top secret location.
What does this mean for Mudder Nation? You wanted more new and exciting obstacles, and in 2019 we're going to give them to you.
