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.

Toughest Mudder is looking for the toughest volunteers out there for the 2017 season. Think you have what it takes?

Today, we’re very excited to announce Tough Mudder X - a first-of-its-kind elite fitness competition - that TMHQ will be producing in partnership with CBS Sports in 2017.


Toughest Mudders,


Miranda Richardson is well known on the UK Tough Mudder circuit. In 2016 she went international and headed out to World’s Toughest and also the first Middle East event in Dubai. We chatted to her about combat trousers, Arctic Enema and all things volunteering…


You’re probably wondering... “Who is Half-ass Henry?”  While he may be a man of few words, he has wisdom beyond his years. We caught up with the legend himself to learn more about who the beard growing, sunglass sporting, newest member of Mudder nation is.

What are you striving toward?

Greatness. Isn’t everyone? If you’re not, you should be.



Don’t forget, Monday, November 16, 2015 is National Mudder Day. What’s that? Only the best day of the year in Mudder Nation. Whether you’ve just completed your first Tough Mudder, or are on your way home from World’s Toughest, it’s a day to recognize all the muddy accomplishments you made in 2015 and instead of cake, we’re celebrating with free Chipotle burritos. Wear your headband to any Chipotle in North America on Monday 11/16  and fill your belly to the brim with burrito goodness. Here’s how...

Dear Mudders, World’s Toughest Mudders, and Future World’s Toughest Mudders:

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when all of you crazy Mudders start deciding whether you want to put your body through one of the most challenging and badass events on the planet.

Mudder Nation,
Are you ready to take on Tough Mudder Tahoe?
We are back at Tahoe for our fourth time, and this time we are throwing everything and the kitchen sink at this course. Well, not actually the kitchen sink... but that could be a good obstacle name. We’ll work on that for the future. But for now, back to Tahoe. 
In the past we have stuck to a very similar course route at Northstar Resort, but that is all about to change.
From the field of Tough Mudder Portland.
This morning our team decided to test out one of the most epic Mud Miles Tough Mudder has ever built. Prepare to bring everything you’ve got to conquer this obstacle.
It is only 50 yards long, but it took our team of 7 guys a full 10 minutes to get through. You're gonna need all of Mudder Nation to get you through this one.

Ever since wrapping up in Wisconsin, BQ and the Best Friends Gang have been hard at work setting up Tough Mudder Michigan.

Since we’re the best in the biz, you may ask yourself how the Best Friends Gang handles the task of packing so much nonsense and badassery into one innocent piece of land.

Alright, Michigan. Here’s your answer, in chronological order.


“Life is all about teamwork. Relationships are about teamwork.” It’s a good philosophy to adhere to, especially for Kyle Schmid, who makes his living bringing stories to life on television and the silver screen in SIX.


Come prepared for this year’s 8-Hour Toughest Event by packing these 10 must-have gear items.


America’s Toughest Mudder Midwest doesn’t have the elevation gain of Toughest Mudder Canada, but don’t expect this course to be easy. In fact, it might be the most challenging one you’ve faced.
