Egal, ob auf oder abseits der Strecke: Ein Mudder kann jedes Hindernis überwinden und weiß wie es sich anfühlt, Großes zu leisten.

One of the first things you’ll notice upon walking into Tough Mudder Headquarters is a cast of characters as electrifying and diverse as our on-course obstacles. And while there’s no doubt you’re familiar with our military-style obstacles, few have a chance to meet the minds behind the mud-coated madness.

After a sixth place finish at World’s Toughest Mudder 2013, Team Wheaties is primed for Vegas and eager to make another bold attempt at WTM glory. To do so, they’ll need to edge out last year’s team champions, 3am Waterfalls, Under Armour’s All-Australian Team and a pack of scrappy underdogs from across the globe.

Tough Mudder's 10-12 mile military-style obstacle course is about much more than overcoming on-course obstacles-- it's a chance for people around the world to test their fitness while bonding with friends and fellow Mudders and overcoming physical, mental and personal obstacles along the way.

Throughout the years, however, countless amazing, storybook-like team achievements have seeped through the cracks of sports history.

Here are four of our favorites:

Virginia native and six-time Tough Mudder finisher Heather Ferguson is much more than a World’s Toughest Mudder. She’s mother to the World’s Toughest Baby. So what exactly constitutes “tough” for a baby? How about running 1,600 miles… before being born. Yes, we thought she had some explaining to do too--that’s why we asked Heather to tell her story of her daughter Zoey, aka World’s Toughest Baby (WTB), in her own words.

Be afraid, Chuck Norris. Be very afraid.

Before running a big event like Tough Mudder, we look for ways to pump ourselves up. We might dust off our power rock album, look to mentors for words of wisdom or continuously loop the Rocky-Ivan Drago fight (spoiler alert - Rocky wins). But what if instead of looking outside of us, we started looking inside of us for confidence and self-assurance?

Sometimes a few words of wisdom is all it takes to move man into action. During the toughest of times, we all access our internal, inspirational arsenal for reassurance and motivation.

Inspired by the events following 9/11, and officially founded in 2003, Wounded Warrior Project, Tough Mudder's official charity partner, began with the simple desire to provide comfort items to wounded service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Over the past decade, however, the organization has grown into a holistic rehabilitation initiative, assisting veterans in countless ways as they transition back into civilian life.

To no surprise, TMHQ is home to many a dream job, and arguably the most coveted among these is Head Course Designer—a title held by one bold soul since Tough Mudder's inception in 2009. An ever-elusive, globetrotting go-getter, we caught up with the maddest mind in mud this off season to ask the questions on every Mudder's mind.

Thien-than C su-Chet’s (aka “TNT”) favorite Tough Mudder course is Raceway Park, home to Tough Mudder Tri-State. Ask him why, and he’ll tell you that it’s storied, gritty, rugged and demands absolute respect.

Having gotten to know TNT over the past few months, I find that in describing Tough Mudder’s most storied venue, he’s inadvertently describing himself.

When Ryan Atkins told the border control officer his reason for entering into the US from Canada in mid-November, the officer noted that Raceway Park, host of World's Toughest Mudder 2013, was a common calling for crossing Canadians that day. Without missing a beat, his girlfriend, Lindsay, sitting beside him, wittingly remarked, “Yeah, but you haven't had the winner come through yet, have you?”
