By TMHQ | December 18, 2017


A New Year. For most it's a chance for fresh starts, resolutions and healthy diets but for Mudders far and wide it holds a special kind of promise.

5 Things You Need to Know About Obstacle Unveil 2018

If there is one thing that Tough Mudder is known for (after the crazy mud and orange headbands) it's obstacle innovation, and the announcement of brand new obstacles stokes a fire under Mudder Nation like nothing else.

So as you wait patiently for the all important details here are the five most important things you need to know about what is to come in January 2018.

1. January 11th 2018 is The Date

Clear your schedule, take the day off work, and prepare your eyes for a feast of information and newness on this very special day. Have toughmudder.com open and every social media platform possible near your face because you're going to want to see this and then you're going to want to share it.

Pro tip: Write this date down now. Google Calender it. Set a phone reminder. You wouldn't want to forget.

2. Brand New Obstacles

For months TMHQ has been abuzz with new ideas, there have been drawings and renderings, designs and redesigns and a whole bunch of testing and finally...FINALLY on January 11th 2018 we can reveal to the world our Brand. New. Obstacles. 

That means if you've booked your ticket for 2018 you can expect to take on obstacles that have never been seen on course before. Think we might have lost our touch? There's a reason we're considered the biggest and bestest in the world.

3. The Vault will be Emptied

It's all been pretty cloak-and-dagger so far, some fuzzy videos, a crazy hacker and a handful of leaked secret files.

Let us clear things up a little. The Vault, which is filled to the brim with classic Tough Mudder obstacle designs has been opened and come January we will be asking you to vote for your favorites.

And the winners? Well they might just be making an appearance on course in 2018.

4. More Legionnaire Exclusives

If you bleed orange you deserve unique challenges that are on course just for you. They will require skill, experience and fearlessness which is exectly why we know the Legionnaires can handle it.


5. Something BIG is Coming

The fun doesn't stop in January either. We're cooking up a monumental, global announcement that will knock you off your feet, and give you something to look forward to once the excitement of obstacle unveil has passed.
