Tough Mudder X 2018 World Championship — Athletes to watch

By TMHQ | June 5, 2018

 

The Tough Muddder X World Championship, presented by Kill Cliff, will be the most physically demanding race you’ve ever done (just ask anyone who participated in the Sacramento Open and Miami Open this year) and the most action packed one-mile course you’ll ever watch.

Tough Mudder X is a uniquely designed one-mile race built to test speed, agility, and strength on world class obstacles and in muscle crushing workouts.  Tough Mudder X will push good to great, better to best, and The Toughest Athletes on the Planet beyond their limits.

Filming on June 8 in Richmond, Virginia for CBS and CBS Sports, the Tough Mudder X World Championship is bringing elite athletes to the start line vying for over $66,000 in cash prizing. You can catch the action LIVE IRL for FREE. Check out how to get your spectator tickets.

Here's a taste of who you’ll be competing alongside, or watching from the sidelines.
