There are less than 100 days until the 2016 Tough Mudder Australia season kicks off at the iconic Sirromet Winery, in sunny South East Queensland. Mudders, this will be your first chance to take on all the new world-class new obstacles over an 18-20 km course that will test your mental and physical strength and take teamwork to a whole new level.
Mudder Nation is made of some of the most kickass and inspiring people around the globe, and in 2016 we’re introducing 50 of them to you as Tough Mudder Ambassadors. They’re leaders on the course, and we’re not talking about finishing first - they’ll be the ones to give you a boost over Berlin Walls, a hand at Everest, tips to get through Arctic Enema, or the motivation you need to push through each mile.
Stay tuned throughout January as we reveal who these fine folks are, and why they’re so passionate about mud.
Every obstacle on a Tough Mudder course tests your physical strength, but if there’s one that pushes the boundaries of your mental grit to the max, it’s Arctic Enema. This is one beast that no amount of preparation, physical or mental, will leave you feeling prepared for, but there are a few things to keep in mind the next time you take the mind-numbing plunge into sub 40 degree waters.
Don’t freak out, it expends your natural body heat.
Stay calm. Think. And just keep moving forward.
In 2015 we kicked off the first season of Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder - a 1-mile obstacle course for 7-12 year olds who consider themselves Tough Mudders in Training. They climb, crawl and swerve their way through Tough Mudder inspired obstacles all while lending each other a helping, albeit muddy, hand.
Check out this epic compilation video from the 2015 season, and watch as these Mini Mudders show you what teamwork and getting dirty is all about.
Teamwork makes the dream work and at Tough Mudder, that’s a fact. The fourth line of our Mudder pledge, ‘I help my fellow mudders complete the course,' demands it. But what if the sweat you drip on the course could help others off it?
Conquer this beast of an obstacle with 3 killer tips courtesy of Coach.
- Dominate the monkey bars using the rhythm of your supple hip.
- Have some patience and transition with ease. Take advantage of your momentum as you swing from one bar to the next.
- While shimmying down the pole, control your swing, tighten your core (and your butt), and work on stability.
Mudders, das Jahr neigt sich dem Ende zu und damit ist es an der Zeit, auf eine glorreiche Tough Mudder Saison 2015 zurückzublicken.
