Stay in the loop with all the muddiest news including price specials, giveaways and all the latest obstacles reveals.


Kiss of Mud requires Mudders to transverse a series of elevation changes, all while hugging the mud-coated ground below and avoiding the barbed wire above. Keeping your head down while sliding into deep trenches and crawling over hay bales ain’t as easy as it sounds.


The Block Ness Monster is as epic and tricky as Nessie herself. Mudders have to push, pull, and roll their way through 60ft of slick, rotating barriers. With a little help from your friends, you can rock and roll your way through one of Tough Mudder’s newest obstacle taking teamwork to a whole new level.


As you approach the angry beast, you can hear it clicking its 1,000 yellow tongues at you, just waiting for you to run right into its gaping mouth. Others go ahead before you and for a split second you think it will all be okay – hey, look, that guy’s making it through fine. But then he goes down, then another and yet another. You can feel the sweat on your brow as you realize, holy sh*t it’s your turn. You’re about to dash through 10,000 volts of electricity and you have no cover.

That’s how Electroshock Therapy may seem in your head. But by the time it’s all over, you have your hard-earned finisher drink in your hand and your new headband wrapped around your forehead soaking up that nervous sweat, and you actually feel damn proud. What was all that fuss about? If you face your fears before you even get on-course, you’re two steps ahead of the game.


The Tough Mudder Obstacle Innovation Lab is determined to create the biggest, baddest brain freeze on planet Earth. Mudders will now be forced to plunge head-first through a tight, dark tube into the ice-laden water before having to upright themselves and duck back under a barrier to get out the other side. Arctic Enema is now truly the ultimate mind f*ck. Mission accomplished.

Don’t freak out, it expends your natural body heat. Stay calm. Think. And just keep moving forward. Though these won’t make it any easier, having a strategy may help you to get in and out as fast as possible.


Faster, higher, stronger – that’s not only the Olympic motto but also the motto of Tough Mudder!  Everest 2.0 is impressive 20% steeper than his predecessor, and drives quite a few Mudders to desperation.  Conquering Everest takes major grit and teamwork. Sprint up this quarter-pipe obstacle and enlist the help of other Mudders℠ to pull you over the beastly summit. Everest is coated in mud and grease, a combo that might send you right back from where you came. Suck it up and keep climbing. The view from the top is worth it.


This Tough Mudder staple keeps coming back bigger and badder. At 9’ 6”, that cleat at the bottom might give you a leg up, but it won’t make you Mary Poppins. Whatever your strategy for conquering this wall, don’t forget they come in pairs. And remember, there’s a difference between a helpful boost and an improper touch.
