Tough Mudder is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing ‘endurance’ road race. Our 10-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Forget finish times. Simply completing a Tough Mudder is a badge of honor. Tough Mudder has raised over one million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.
WARNING: Tough Mudder is 3-4 times longer and MUCH TOUGHER than a typical mud run such as Warrior Dash. On average, only 78% of participants finish the event. Only those in reasonably strong physical condition should enter. See our Training Page.
the obstacle course is INSANE.
jumping off a 10-20 foot tower into a mud puddle filled with ice.
running through things that are ON FIRE.
passing through a maze of live wires that will electrocute you.
did i mention that you actually have to run too???
this obstacle course is spread out over 10-ish miles.
NO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
i admire the hub's insane sense of thrill seeking...but you better believe that i will be watching from the sidelines (while warm and dry) cheering like a madwoman and praying that he doesn't die. yes all participants have to sign a waver that doesn't hold the race people responsible if you kick the can mid-race. awesome. just what i would want to do....
anyone out there do any 'extreme' races like this?
any mud runs? warrior dashes?
or better yet, anyone do a tough mudder and live to talk about it?
