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.
The dust has settled and the bruises have healed, but the muddy memories made on the course in 2015 will last a lifetime. Relive the 24 hours of madness with the official World's Toughest Mudder 2015 documentary.
We’re in week two of the month-long #ItsAllBeenTraining photo/video contest series. Check out our second winner, Sophie Pemberton, who teamed up with her stylish pal for a unique perspective of what #ItsAllBeenTraining means.

Last week we kicked off our month long #ItsAllBeenTraining photo contest series and you submitted hundreds of truly amazing pics to choose from. After much debate, we're pumped to announce the first of four winners of a $500 Merrell gift card is this badass chick, Megan Bryant from Atascadero, CA.
Mudder Nation is made of some of the most kickass and inspiring people around the globe, and in 2016 we’re introducing 50 of them to you as Tough Mudder Ambassadors. They’re leaders on the course, and we’re not talking about finishing first - they’ll be the ones to give you a boost over Berlin Walls, a hand at Everest, tips to get through Arctic Enema, or the motivation you need to push through each mile.
Stay tuned throughout January as we reveal who these fine folks are, and why they’re so passionate about mud.
Grab your hot cocoa and gather around, the Yule Log has been Coachified.
What better way to get into the holiday spirit than Coach, a grand fireplace, and some festive hip swivels. If you watch nothing else, skip to 50:10 and feast your eyes on his fantastical dance moves, sure to bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.
Every obstacle on a Tough Mudder course tests your physical strength, but if there’s one that pushes the boundaries of your mental grit to the max, it’s Arctic Enema. This is one beast that no amount of preparation, physical or mental, will leave you feeling prepared for, but there are a few things to keep in mind the next time you take the mind-numbing plunge into sub 40 degree waters.
Don’t freak out, it expends your natural body heat.
Stay calm. Think. And just keep moving forward.
In 2015 we kicked off the first season of Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder - a 1-mile obstacle course for 7-12 year olds who consider themselves Tough Mudders in Training. They climb, crawl and swerve their way through Tough Mudder inspired obstacles all while lending each other a helping, albeit muddy, hand.
Check out this epic compilation video from the 2015 season, and watch as these Mini Mudders show you what teamwork and getting dirty is all about.
Teamwork makes the dream work and at Tough Mudder, that’s a fact. The fourth line of our Mudder pledge, ‘I help my fellow mudders complete the course,' demands it. But what if the sweat you drip on the course could help others off it?
Conquer this beast of an obstacle with 3 killer tips courtesy of Coach.
- Dominate the monkey bars using the rhythm of your supple hip.
- Have some patience and transition with ease. Take advantage of your momentum as you swing from one bar to the next.
- While shimmying down the pole, control your swing, tighten your core (and your butt), and work on stability.
