What is WTM?
World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM) is a 24-hour around-the-clock version of Tough Mudder. Whereas regular Tough Mudder is “Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet,” WTM (or “World’s Toughest” as it’s colloquially called) lays legitimate claim to actually being THE toughest event on the planet. WTM this year will be held November 15-16 at Lake Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. (Yes, we said “Vegas.”)
World's Toughest Mudder 2014 is officially in the books. Universally regarded as the toughest World's Toughest Mudder, it was also the most complex, challenging, fun, and full of community spirit of any WTM to date. Held on a beautiful but mercilessly hilly course overlooking Lake Las Vegas, and just beside the splendor of the Westin and Hilton Hotels, one of the most unique global events went down in true Mudder fashion. Hot during the day, cold and windy at night, and full of new and different obstacles, participants were challenged like never before.
Hardy competitors continue to press on despite the cold wind, trying to hit mileage goals and go home with a coveted 25, 50, or 75 mile WTM bib. Overall #1 Ryan Atkins crossed the finish line approximately 15 mins ago, having completed 95 miles with an insurmountable 9 mile lead on second place Jarrod Pace (86 miles) of Sydney, Australia. Ryan will stop and repeat as the World's Toughest Mudder. The battle in the overall is now between Jarrod and Trevor Cichosz of Woodland, Washington, USA (85 miles) for second.
Last weekend, over 1200 of the toughest people on the face of the planet descended on the desert sands of Las Vegas. Competitors from every corner of the globe came to Lake Las Vegas to compete in the 5th annual World’s Toughest Mudder competition. WTM is a 24 hour endurance mud run that tests every facet of an athlete.
Saturday at 2pm in Las Vegas cannot come soon enough. Here at TMHQ, we have spent the last 12 months planning what we feel is the best WTM course to date. With year 5 of WTM upon us, we were able to take all of the learnings from the first 4 events, and create the most challenging and well-rounded event you have seen to date. This course will test every facet of the competitors skill set, both mental and physical.

Deanna Blegg is no stranger to the World’s Toughest Mudder. At the second WTM in 2012, Deanna placed second female (third overall). The following year, at WTM 2013, she placed first, boasting 85 miles, or 17 laps of the 5-mile loop course. Then again in 2015 she was on the podium with another third place win to her name. Those who have met Deanna recognize her for her bright smile, determination, and kindness, and while many are aware of her accomplishments on course, few know her story off the course and out of the mud.
The impact of running over 100 courses is deep. Find out how from the most decorated Mudder in Tough Mudder history.
