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.
Tough Mudder is a big deal. Over 3 million people have slapped on the warpaint since 2010. You’ve probably heard the stories…

An update on Josh's story

One of the oldest African proverbs states, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” At TMHQ, we’re a living, breathing extension of this age-old motto. As any member of Mudder Legion will tell you, teamwork is the very foundation on which Tough Mudder is built. But what is it about a team that makes Tough Mudder THAT much better?
Step 1. Team Size
Once you’ve recruited one mate, you’ve got a team. And there’s no cap on how many people you can have it your team. But don’t fret if you only have a few or even on your own – you’ll find an army of teammates on course at any TM event. There is no perfect team size. So, consider it a challenge! The bigger, the better.
Step 2. Team Name

What is WTM?
World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM) is a 24-hour around-the-clock version of Tough Mudder. Whereas regular Tough Mudder is “Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet,” WTM (or “World’s Toughest” as it’s colloquially called) lays legitimate claim to actually being THE toughest event on the planet. WTM this year will be held November 15-16 at Lake Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. (Yes, we said “Vegas.”)
Prior to a Tough Mudder, Mudders are faced with a plethora of mind-boggling gear dilemmas. Glasses or contacts? T-shirt and shorts or compression gear? The Pippi Longstocking leggings or the ass-less chaps?
Everyone’s preferences are different, and we respect that. However, there are three things in particular that you better not so much as dream about bringing to our course on event day, and it’s about time we remind you of them.
When you think of running a Tough Mudder, do the words "yea, right" come to mind? If so, you're far from alone.
