Toughest Mudder is an 8 hour obstacle course that takes teamwork, stamina and mental grit to the extreme—all between the hours of midnight Saturday night and 8AM Sunday morning. With multiple regions, geographies and hardcore contenders from across the globe, Toughest Mudder is the ultimate challenge for Mudders insane enough to push themselves beyond anything they've ever experienced.
For those that want to take it one step further, the event series will act as a qualifier to make it into the Contender Category at World's Toughest Mudder (which includes eligibility for prizing).
Through our partnership with CBS Sports, we will be sharing all the action of Toughest Mudder and World’s Toughest Mudder in 2018, giving an in-depth look at the newest event series.

Rope-a-Dope Unique Feature
Start off with an 8’ broad leap out to grab, and climb a 15’ rope. Once at the top, enjoy a second transition at the top of the climb where you have to shimmy down a second, angled rope. Oh, and one error has you dropping into 12’ of water...
Funky Monkey Unique Feature
No more standard monkey bar climb up, instead you will have variable hand holds and grips to get across the water pit. Oh yeah, and you might want to watch out for reverse holds and false grips.
Happy Ending Unique Feature
New in 2018 is the massive finisher obstacle Happy Ending presented by Merrell. You aren’t getting the standard obstacle here, we added targeted water pumps to send a flood of water crashing down on your dome as you try to climb up. The higher you go, the tougher it gets.
Everest 2.0 Unique Feature
In 2018 you will see an added vertical wall to increase the already impressive height and difficulty of classic Everest. Want to skip the wall? Feel free, but you’ll enjoy an added run penalty if you do.
