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.

Tough Mudder isn’t just another mud run or challenge, and Chipotle doesn’t just provide great burritos.   

At every Tough Mudder event, and in our Mudders’ everyday lives, we see amazing displays of camaraderie, teamwork and integrity. At TMHQ, one of our core values is pride, and we bring integrity to everything we do.


After months of consulting and planning with the hip-swiveling Coach Theodore Mudhoney, we’re ready to launch our official Tough Mudder 2015 Obstacle Training series.

Featuring think-outside-the-gym training videos highlighting how to best prep for each of our world-class obstacles, our series is full of freakishly fun, Mudder-ready training tips for newbies and Mudder legends alike.

So loosen up those hips, press play and get ready to be Coachified.


Many of you know that as a mom, being healthy, fit and in shape are important to me. I like to keep my fitness routine varied and do my best to avoid what I like to call “burn out.” I’ve run my fair share of races and other challenging events. I’m always up for a challenge. Out of all of the events I’ve participated in, Tough Mudder was not only the most challenging, but also the most rewarding. Having recently conquered the LA course as part of Ziploc® Team Tough Mother, I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on what it means to be a tough mother.


It happens every year. As spring heats up, so does your desire to have rip-roaring abs, or at least something of their semblance. But since you don’t have a gym membership or any free time with your “busy schedule,” you’ll just have to accept the baby bump o’ beer for one more summer season, right?


May 2, 2015 marks the five year anniversary of Tough Mudder’s very first event at Bear Creek ski resort in Pennsylvania. Needless to say, it’s been a wild, memorable, epic half-decade ride.

Watch how far we’ve come in a few short years, and then get caught up on your Tough Mudder history by visiting our Tough Mudder 5 Year Anniversary Page.


Over the past five years, we’ve realized that Mudders are as diverse as the reasons that drive them to our start line. As we celebrate our 5th anniversary this week, we’re here to run down the top reasons Mudders have committed to the Tough Mudder challenge--and why you should too.


This year, we’ve already sent one contest winner and a friend to Tough Mudder Whistler, and they were so psyched that we wanted to give you Mudders a heads up about another chance to win a trip to TM Whistler for you and three of your friends.

Right now, Tourism Whistler is running a contest offering an insane laundry list of prizes to one lucky Mudder.

The grand prize includes:
  • Round-trip coach air transportation to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
