You may have already heard rumours about an exclusive, timed start wave that promises a brand new, unique headband and cash prizes.
Well, the rumours are true and it's time you got the lowdown on Tougher Mudder.
The Tougher basics
Tougher Mudder is the first step in our new competitive race series. Those who sign up for Tougher will run in the first wave of the day, be given an official course time, exclusive finisher gear and the opportunity to win cash.
The top three men and women are eligible to win prize money, with third place taking home $(£)100, second place $(£)250 and the top male and female will win $(£)500.
What about teamwork?
Don't worry we hear you. Yes, the very foundations of Tough Mudder are built on teamwork and camaraderie, but we also hold personal accomplishment and courage in extremely high regard. We're constantly striving to do better, be better, offer more and in return, we want the same from you.
Tougher Mudder is for those who want to push themselves and see how far they can go. But although Tougher runners may want to win and want to achieve a personal best - also know that teamwork and camaraderie are still king.
Tougher Mudders still recite a (slightly altered) pledge and they will still help their fellow Mudder to complete the course. In the end, the race is only with yourself.
The Holy Grail
Tougher Mudder is part of a competitive race series, along with Toughest Mudder and World's Toughest Mudder. Each version demands more than the last, presenting new challenges and forcing participants to consider whether they really are tough enough. If you complete one of each within a year you will have achieved the Holy Grail and a unique finisher shirt, patch, TMHQ grail and digital badge are all yours.

Tougher Mudder tickets are available for all events, you can purchase the add-on via eventbrite when you purchase your Tough Mudder Full ticket.
