5 Miles. 13 Obstacles. 1 Extraordinary Experience
Escape the ordinary with Tough Mudder Half Houston Presented by Merrell. Tough Mudder Half isn’t a race - it’s the best 5-mile mud obstacle course challenge on the planet (with no ice or electricity). It’s a community of 2 million strong who’ve already found camaraderie on the course and in the mud...and it’s your first step toward warrior status. With the help of your fellow Houston Mudders, you’ll overcome our highest-rated obstacles, adrenaline-pumping challenges...and the little voice in your head that says “you can’t.”
We've also lowered our minimum age to 14 - so you can get muddy with the whole family.
Incredible Venue, Challenging Course
You won’t need an all-terrain vehicle to tackle Creekside Edge ATV Park, but make no mistake about it - Tough Mudder Half Houston is going to be one heck of a challenge. Sinking sand, deep forest trails, and swampy mud - this course will be a battle. But if you want that headband (and that beer) you’ve got to go and keep going.
