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.

I did my first Tough Mudder in 2014 at the Tri-State event. Since then I have done four full courses and two half courses, as well as the Tri-State Tougher Mudder this year.
At Veterans Overcoming Obstacles, the belief is that a healthy lifestyle supports change. This Colorado-based non-profit organization helps veterans deal with drug and alcohol addiction, PTSD-related suicide, and the difficult transition from military service to civilian life through a focus on health and fitness.
As men across the country start sprouting mustaches in Movember, you'll see even more Tough Mudders hitting the course with upper lip foliage. Tough Mudder and Every Man Jack have partnered together to raise money for the Movember Foundation to support men’s health. It's all about #GroomingForGood!
Training is almost always better with company, and let’s face it: No one loves hanging out with you more than your dog. In fact, your pooch can even get in on your favorite cardio at a Ruff Mudder event thanks to our friends at CHEWY. So, if you’re looking for a new workout partner, you don’t need to look any further than your four-legged friend.
10 years of Tough Mudder means one hell of a lot of mud. So what better way to celebrate our birthday than sharing our top 10 favorite muddy moments.

This won't be the first time Tough Mudder North West makes an appearance on this list - hands down the muddiest event in the UK.
Everyone who signs up for a Tough Mudder is keen for a challenge. If you’re looking for quiet and comfort, you’ve come to the wrong place! But even though we know the the course will push our physical and mental toughness to the limit, many Mudders—even seasoned veterans—still get frozen by certain obstacles (and not just by the temperature of Arctic Enema).
Tough Mudder obstacles are the biggest and baddest in the business. For nearly 10 years, our Obstacle Design Team has continued to raise the bar and test your will and your courage. So, if you ever feel the natural urge to hesitate before attempting an obstacle, believe me, you are not alone.
Fall is a beautiful time for running and training. As the temperatures begin to drop and the leaves begin to turn, you can’t help but lace up your shoes to put in those extra miles and leap on, up, and over every obstacle (literally and figuratively). After braving the heat from the summer months, athletes can finally embrace comfortable, cooler weather in addition to breaking out some new fall obstacle course gear.
