5 Tough Tips for Tough Mudder Spectators

Published on February 13, 2017 by TMHQ

Didn’t think Tough Mudder was a spectator sport? Think again. Attending a Tough Mudder will leave you with a lasting memory, even if you don’t get dirty in the process. Spectators are welcome to soak in the on course energy as Mudders conquer obstacles and participate in all of the on site activities available in Mudder Village.

Sound exciting? Here are a few Tough Tips to make it through event day from the other side of the ropes.

Grab a Map

As you enter Mudder Village, make sure to grab a map and keep it handy. Spectators are welcome to walk the course and watch as Mudders crush obstacles with their team.

Know Before You Go

Pick a few obstacles to meet your team at for prime photo taking opportunities. The facial expressions you’ll catch at Mud Mile, Arctic Enema, Augustus Gloop, Everest and Electroshock Therapy are ones you’ll never want to forget.

Explore Mudder Village

Grab a beer and test out Merrell’s new all-terrain kicks on the Mudderhorn.

Mini Mudder

Available at all of our US, UK, and Ireland Tough Mudder and Tough Mudder Half events, pint sized adventure seekers between the ages of 7-12 are invited to tackle this 1-mile, kid-friendly obstacle course.

What to Bring

Running a Tough Mudder could take a team upward of 3 hours to complete. Wear comfortable shoes (that can withstand a bit of mud), pack a few snacks, and get ready to experience something you’ve never seen before.

Ready to support your team? Spectator tickets are available for purchase on event pages and on-site event weekend (prices increase on event day). Learn more about signing your pint sized Mudder up for a Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder course here.

    My Start time is at 10:15 am at the Long Island Event - so I plan to arrive by 8:15. What time should I tell my spectators to get there?
