10. 'FIRE IN YOUR HOLE' IS AS INSANE AS IT LOOKS
Ominously looming over the Tough Mudder course, this fire-breathing beast of an obstacle, the crown jewel of Legionnaire’s Loop, is accessible only to Mudder Legionnaires-- Mudders with one or more previous Tough Mudder finishes.
9. THE COURSE NEEDS LEADERS LIKE YOU
Having already navigated the mud-coated madness, when you come back again, your presence and words of wisdom benefit and inspire all first-time Mudders.
8. YOU HAVEN’T RUN TOUGH MUDDER WITH (ENTER FRIEND HERE) YET
Lost touch with your childhood best friend? Brother recovering from knee surgery? Former college roommate acting like being dumped is the end of the world? Get them out of their rut by getting them on your team.
7. YOU’VE GOT UNFINISHED BUSINESS WITH (ENTER OBSTACLE HERE)
You’re not the only one who didn’t make it all the way across Funky Monkey on the first go around. Same goes for Everest, Just the Tip and, well, pretty much any combination of our obstacles. Your next Mudder, beat your best. Even the smallest improvement is a win.
6. WORLD’S TOUGHEST MUDDER IS STILL ON YOUR BUCKET LIST
You haven’t had the full Tough Mudder experience until you’ve given World’s Toughest Mudder (WTM), the insane 24-hour extreme obstacle course race hosted in the middle of the desert, a run for its money.
5. YOU WERE LOOKIN’ DAMN GOOD AFTER ALL THAT TRAINING LAST TIME
Putting on a couple of pounds? We’ve got just the cure for that: Tough Mudder training. Training is a major part of the Mudder journey, and the results you’ve earned stick with you long after the finish line.
4. IT AIN’T THE SAME COURSE YOU RAN LAST TIME
Holing ourselves up at our Obstacle Innovation Lab is one of our favorite TMHQ past times. Like our participants and our venues, no two Tough Mudder courses are alike. Don’t believe us? Ask 50-time Tough Mudder Jim Campbell.
3. BRAGGING RIGHTS. PERIOD.
What’s more badass than running through 10-12 miles of military-grade obstacles combining mud, ice, fire and electrical shocks? Having the guts to do it again - and laughing about it.
2. CRUISES ARE LAME AND YOU’VE BEEN TO DOZENS OF THEME PARKS
At the end of 2014, we’ll have put on 57 events worldwide in just nine months. Our Global Mudder weekend proved that Tough Mudder truly is an international phenomenon. Why not join the craze and find a Tough Mudder event in a destination you’ve always dreamed of going?
1. YOUR NEXT EVENT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
We’re not kidding. Take a look at some of our Mudder Stories. People have used Tough Mudder to pull themselves out of life’s most daunting funks. People have met their spouses at Tough Mudder. People have used Tough Mudder to lose hundreds of pounds. The list only keeps growing.
Hint: You’re not getting any younger.
