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…
If you haven’t, allow us to let you in on a little secret (or 5). Here’s what they never tell you about Tough Mudder.

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?
The Mudder community embodies the no Mudder left behind mantra.

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
Get creative... Every year we see “Tough Mothers” and “Brothers in Mud” but we know you can do better than that.

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.”)
Nothing beats the feeling you get crossing the finish line for a cause you care about. You’re bettering the lives of others, and in the process, pushing yourself to levels of mental strength you never knew possible. Running for charity can bring some sweet personal benefits, and it’s about time you knew about them.

Any seasoned Mudder will tell you that helping others is a priority - it’s in the pledge, and it’s in their blood. That’s why so many people who lined up at the start line of a Tough Mudder event in 2016 were there to raise money for charity. We love hearing the inspirational stories of our fundraisers, and we know you do too. So, we caught up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a member of the official Tough Mudder Charity Family, to hear about some of their amazing fundraisers who braved the mud in 2016.
