7: What is Tough Mudder? Tough Mudder is not a race. It is supposed to be a personal challenge – the goal is simply to complete the course. The Tough Mudder series was launched because there is not an event in America that tests toughness, fitness, strength, stamina, and mental grit all in one place and all in one day. Tough Mudder is a truly exceptional event for truly exceptional people. Fair weather runners should stay at home. Each course is purposefully designed be different, utilizing local climates and terrains to build a series of events that test all-round toughness strength, fitness, mental grit and camaraderie in every environment imaginable. Tough Mudders don’t compare times, they don’t brag, they just achieve. 10 Miles 25 Obstacles Lots of Sweat!
