Breaking News: Tough Mudder Nation is Officially 3 Million Strong

By TMHQ | 20. Juli 2017


This global tribe of people, who have shared the EPIC experience that is Tough Mudder, has been constantly growing since 2010. Seven years later, we’re proud to announce that this month we will see our three millionth Mudder take on Electroshock Therapy to cross the finish line.

What’s made three million people (and counting) escape their ordinary to step outside their comfort zone and into the mud you may ask? You’re about to find out.

3 Million Ways To Push Your Boundaries

Yes there are other obstacle courses- but none like ours. A Tough Mudder isn’t a race, it’s a carefully designed challenge that’ll test your physical and mental strength. And while we maintain that with the help of fellow Mudders, anyone can do it, you’d better be determined to show the mud who’s boss.

Tough Mudders aren’t about how fast you cross the finish line, or who you leave in the dust (or mud) along the way. With obstacles that encourage team-work they’re about camaraderie, and accomplishing something extraordinary tougher. Whether it’s a helping hand on Pyramid Scheme or an extra vote of confidence on King of Swingers, your fellow Mudders will be there for you every step of the way.

3 Millions Ways To Have Fun

Tough Mudders are 10 miles of 20+ obstacles meant to test your toughness.  But every member of Mudder Legion knows that nothing on the course is meant to be taken too seriously. Yes it’s tough, yes it will push you, yes you’ll overcome mud-drenched obstacles. But if you’re not having FUN, you’re doing it wrong!

Tough Mudder has the most fun, epic obstacles in the industry. Getting up close and personal with mud has never been as enjoyable as it is in Kiss of Mud 2.0. Scrambling through 60ft of slick, rotating barriers on The Block Ness Monster (our highest rated obstacle of all time) is ridiculously fun to try, and takes teamwork to a whole new level. Even slogging through a chest-deep water-pit on Snot Rocket will get your adrenaline pumping.

And then there’s the countless wackadoo costumes we see every year on course. From, inflatable T-Rex and Baywatch babes to Gandalf and Saruman, if you can dress up as it, we’ve seen it tackle the mud.  

3 Million Ways To Help Your Friends

When it comes to teamwork we don’t just talk the talk. From Tough Mudder Headquarters to the mud, teamwork is at the core of everything we do.

Off-course, camaraderie defines Mudder Nation. Everyday, 3 Million Mudder are out there helping their friends overcome the obstacles of life.

Plus, what’s better than catching eye of someone wearing a Tough Mudder finisher tee or rocking a Tough Mudder tattoo (yes, over 10,000 people have one)? Nothing says, “Ah, you too have overcome mud, water, ice, electricity and obstacle” quite like the shared look between Legionnaires.

On-course, obstacles such as Pyramid Scheme, Everest 2.0 and Block Ness Monster can’t be completed by one person alone, it takes many hands, legs and arms to tackle these beasts.

So let’s raise a glass and celebrate. Here’s cheers to all of you, 3 million+ finishers.

But that is not all, stay tuned because on the 28 July we have an extra special gift you can enjoy with all of your friends…. (Hint: it involves mud).
