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.
We’re in week two of the month-long #ItsAllBeenTraining photo/video contest series. Check out our second winner, Sophie Pemberton, who teamed up with her stylish pal for a unique perspective of what #ItsAllBeenTraining means.

It’s Bigger, Better, Badder
In 2016, we've taken everything to the next level: obstacle innovations, on course experiences, and teamwork.
We brought back the obstacles you love most and introduced new creations tested, and approved, by the most badass Mudders on the planet at World's Toughest Mudder 2015. We dare you to dig deep, remember your roots, throw caution to the wind, and take the plunge.
Not quite up for 10 miles of mud, ice baths, and 10,000 volts of electricity? That's quite alright. Instead, kick off your initiation into Mudder Nation on a Tough Mudder Half course in 2016. Crush classic Tough Mudder obstacles the all-new Tough Mudder Half exclusive, Flying Squirrel.
Mudder: Joe Perry
Origin: Wallaceburg, Ontario, Canada
Legionnaire Status: 100 laps at 57 Tough Mudders, 235 Miles at 4 World’s Toughest Mudders
Last week we kicked off our month long #ItsAllBeenTraining photo contest series and you submitted hundreds of truly amazing pics to choose from. After much debate, we're pumped to announce the first of four winners of a $500 Merrell gift card is this badass chick, Megan Bryant from Atascadero, CA.
There’s no better place on the planet to test the extreme ideas from our mad-minded course designers than on the ground at World’s Toughest Mudder with the best athletes from around the globe. Get ready for all-new ab-crushing, calf-burning, mind-blowing obstacles that are going to push your physical and mental strength to their breaking points.
Mudder Nation is crawling with thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies so throughout the month of January we are celebrating the epic moments and experiences that have prepared you to tackle all of Tough Mudder’s 2016 challenges. Share a picture, or video, of the craziest thing you’ve ever done using the hashtag #ItsAllBeenTraining for a chance to win a $500 Merrell gift card (we;re giving away 4!) and a grand prize trip for 2 to a Tough Mudder anywhere around the world.
Mudder Nation is made of some of the most kickass and inspiring people around the globe, and in 2016 we’re introducing 50 of them to you as Tough Mudder Ambassadors. They’re leaders on the course, and we’re not talking about finishing first - they’ll be the ones to give you a boost over Berlin Walls, a hand at Everest, tips to get through Arctic Enema, or the motivation you need to push through each mile.
Stay tuned throughout January as we reveal who these fine folks are, and why they’re so passionate about mud.
Grab your hot cocoa and gather around, the Yule Log has been Coachified.
What better way to get into the holiday spirit than Coach, a grand fireplace, and some festive hip swivels. If you watch nothing else, skip to 50:10 and feast your eyes on his fantastical dance moves, sure to bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart.
Every obstacle on a Tough Mudder course tests your physical strength, but if there’s one that pushes the boundaries of your mental grit to the max, it’s Arctic Enema. This is one beast that no amount of preparation, physical or mental, will leave you feeling prepared for, but there are a few things to keep in mind the next time you take the mind-numbing plunge into sub 40 degree waters.
Don’t freak out, it expends your natural body heat.
Stay calm. Think. And just keep moving forward.
