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.
While every Tough Mudder course has a “no whining” policy, this year, we have no choice but to be a little lax on this rule. The reason? Cry Baby-- Tough Mudder’s latest tearjerker of an obstacle that stirred up a media frenzy earlier this year.
An enclosed structure filled with a (safe) tear gas-like concoction brewed by our mad-minded course team, Cry Baby will have your eyes flowing with tears of, um, laughter--yeah, laughter.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Mudders make the pilgrimmage to run Tough Mudder events near them. Some people are lucky enough to have events in their backyards (we're looking at you, Long Island). While others travel across the country to take part in a new event landscape (think ski slope versus race track).
Mark down this date in your calendar as the day you will travel to Las Vegas to push your own limits farther than you've ever pushed them before. The day you will stop saying, "I'll do that someday" and start saying "F*ck it, sign me up". The day you will embark on one hell of an adventure. Also known as, the day of World's Toughest Mudder 2015.
