Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.

From the field of Tough Mudder Portland.
This morning our team decided to test out one of the most epic Mud Miles Tough Mudder has ever built. Prepare to bring everything you’ve got to conquer this obstacle.
It is only 50 yards long, but it took our team of 7 guys a full 10 minutes to get through. You're gonna need all of Mudder Nation to get you through this one.
Mudder Nation,
Are you ready to take on Tough Mudder Tahoe?
We are back at Tahoe for our fourth time, and this time we are throwing everything and the kitchen sink at this course. Well, not actually the kitchen sink... but that could be a good obstacle name. We’ll work on that for the future. But for now, back to Tahoe. 
In the past we have stuck to a very similar course route at Northstar Resort, but that is all about to change.

Ever since wrapping up in Wisconsin, BQ and the Best Friends Gang have been hard at work setting up Tough Mudder Michigan.

Since we’re the best in the biz, you may ask yourself how the Best Friends Gang handles the task of packing so much nonsense and badassery into one innocent piece of land.

Alright, Michigan. Here’s your answer, in chronological order.


Tough Mudder's 10-12 mile military-style obstacle course is about much more than overcoming on-course obstacles-- it's a chance for people around the world to test their fitness while bonding with friends and fellow Mudders and overcoming physical, mental and personal obstacles along the way. 


Last week, we got around. Now get your mind out of the mud because we’re talking about the worldwide media fanfare surrounding our new obstacles. Here are five of hundreds of outlets that decided that our big news was their big news in one short week.


Every four years, the world’s greatest sporting bodies put on a display of athleticism that grips the globe. FIFA has the World Cup. The IOC has the Olympics. For Tough Mudder, now in its fifth year as the worldwide leader in mud-coated madness, the time to take the world stage is now.

During the weekend of August 16, Tough Mudder will host Global Mudder--a worldwide display of the Mudder spirit so great you need four countries to host it.

So just what is Global Mudder? We thought you'd ask, and we're here to tell you.


Tough Mudder's 10-12 mile military-style obstacle course is about much more than overcoming on-course obstacles-- it's a chance for people around the world to test their fitness while bonding with friends and fellow Mudders, enjoying a hair-raising, new flavor of fun and overcoming physical, mental and personal obstacles along the way.


They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection. Well we have a message for They: Oops. For 2015, our course designers have made some awesome updates to our signature Tough Mudder obstacles.

Here are some new-and-improved challenges you’ll encounter in 2015.


This past Saturday on Randall’s Island in New York, thousands were crowned with green and grey Urban Mudder finisher headbands, as Tough Mudder’s Cousin in the City celebrated its inaugural event.

The five-mile Urban Mudder course, featuring leaps from rooftops, shimmies through laser fields and riverside runs with views of the famed New York skyline, brought a new breed of festival fitness to the Big Apple.

Here are some of our top shots from this weekend’s very first Urban Mudder.


Heads up, Mudders. Throughout the entire mind-numbing 24 hours of World’s Toughest Mudder 2014, one of the world’s most grueling endurance races, Tough Mudder will be broadcasting live media updates right here on the Tough Mudder Blog. Updates will include standing recaps, participant interviews, obstacle highlights, prize giveaways, wild WTM-related stunts and more.

1. It’ll be here before you know it.

Mudder season kicks off in just a few weeks on March 7th with Tough Mudder Gulf Coast. Lucky for you, however, there’s still plenty of time to get on a training regimen to prepare for a Tough Mudder event near you before the coming price increases at midnight on January 29.


While we pride ourselves in being the worldwide leader in mud and grit, our Tough Mudder obstacle courses have attracted some glitz and glamour over the years. Heck, with all that mud covering everyone from head to toe, you might have even run alongside Miss USA without even knowing it. Think we’re kidding? Well, we’re not. We’re kind of a big deal...and so are some other people who have run a Tough Mudder.

Here are some famous folks who’ve gotten down and brown to earn that orange.


You've probably heard the word "epic" to describe Tough Mudder's 2014 season more than once. In case you're wondering why, we've created this:


In case you’re new to the party, every Monday after a Tough Mudder event weekend is an official Wear Your Headband to Work Day, aka Headband Monday. 

Like these Mudders did, keep the adrenaline-pumping positive energy flowing by rocking your orange in the place you make that green. Then take a photo and upload it to Tough Mudder's Facebook page using #HeadbandMonday for a chance to be featured on our blog.


If Tough Mudder were a professional sports league, our all star-game, our celebratory mid-season marker, would be right about now. But just because our athletes aren’t being subpoenaed for steroids or asking their managers for six-figure raises, doesn’t mean we can’t kick back and appreciate the first half of our season in a fan-frenzied way.

And what better way to do that than by revealing our all-star lineup of top Tough Mudder uniforms of the first half of the 2014 Mudder season.
