By TMHQ | June 6, 2018

 

If it wasn’t the dirty south before, it sure as hell will be in November. For the first time in its storied history, World’s Toughest Mudder is invading Atlanta. The imposing 24-hour race through 5 miles of obstacle-packed insanity has been bringing Mudders to their knees for years, and the ATL edition is a lock to keep that tradition on and popping. Now grab an ice cold sweet tea and check out all the reasons you do not want to miss this.

1. Obstacle Mayhem
Our brand new World's Toughest Mudder-only obstacle will be unveiled—and it’s gonna haunt your dreams.

2. The Bold and the Beautiful
Our Atlanta course is amazingly scenic, with lots of hills and trails through lush forest. Don’t let it fool you, though—it’s deceivingly difficult.

3. It’s All About the Mud
Atlanta's clay-filled mud is a step above. It loves to grab a hold and never let go. Shoes beware.

4. Sneak Peakin’
Test yourself against the epic new obstacles headed for course in 2019 before everyone else.

5. That Southern Thing
Legend has it that Atlanta’s where the players play, guess you better ride on these obstacles like every day.

7. History
Atlanta’s symbol is the phoenix because it rose from the ashes after being the only city destroyed by an act of war. Spending 24 hours in the mud will have you looking to rebuild, too.

8. Badass Status
