This past Saturday on Randall’s Island in New York, thousands were crowned with green and grey Urban Mudder finisher headbands, as Tough Mudder’s Cousin in the City celebrated its inaugural event.
The five-mile Urban Mudder course, featuring leaps from rooftops, shimmies through laser fields and riverside runs with views of the famed New York skyline, brought a new breed of festival fitness to the Big Apple.
Here are some of our top shots from this weekend’s very first Urban Mudder.
The wait is over. Tough Mudder's brand-spanking-new original web series, Coachified, is here. In episode one, watch Coach T. Mud tackle Tough Mudder Tahoe with his party brigade.
In case you’re new to the party, every Monday after a Tough Mudder event weekend is an official Wear Your Headband to Work Day, aka Headband Monday.
Like these Mudders did, keep the adrenaline-pumping positive energy flowing by rocking your orange in the place you make that green. Then take a photo and upload it to Tough Mudder's Facebook page using #HeadbandMonday for a chance to be featured on our blog.
Tough Mudder isn’t just another mud run or challenge, and Chipotle doesn’t just provide great burritos.
At every Tough Mudder event, and in our Mudders’ everyday lives, we see amazing displays of camaraderie, teamwork and integrity. At TMHQ, one of our core values is pride, and we bring integrity to everything we do.
This year, we’ve already sent one contest winner and a friend to Tough Mudder Whistler, and they were so psyched that we wanted to give you Mudders a heads up about another chance to win a trip to TM Whistler for you and three of your friends.
Right now, Tourism Whistler is running a contest offering an insane laundry list of prizes to one lucky Mudder.
The grand prize includes:
Round-trip coach air transportation to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
A Tough Mudder course is no stranger to side-splitting creativity, and coming into Tough Mudder Los Angeles, we knew LA Mudders would set the costume bar for the 2015 event season.
Needless to say, we were not disappointed. Here are our top on-course costumes from TM LA.
First there was Tough Mudder. Then there was World’s Toughest Mudder. Then came Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder. Throughout the years, however, one vital demographic remained untapped: babies.
That’s why this year, TMHQ is introducing the first-ever toddler-centric obstacle course for children 18 months to three years old and standing at least 1-foot tall: Baby Mudder.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Mudders make the pilgrimmage to run Tough Mudder events near them. Some people are lucky enough to have events in their backyards (we're looking at you, Long Island). While others travel across the country to take part in a new event landscape (think ski slope versus race track).
This is it Mudders. The Tough Mudder 2015 season is right around the corner. We've been preparing for this moment for months, and we're sure you have too.
We want to see how you've been preparing for your Tough Mudder. Working out with friends? Rolling in the mud in your backyard? Chugging beers at the top of mountains? Share your pic using #TM2015isHere for your chance to win a 2015 Season Pass.
