Tough Mudder 5K

You spoke. We listened. Introducing the ALL NEW Tough Mudder 5k.

More obstacles. Less running. Heaps of Muddy Fun.

Tough Mudder’s NEW 5km course is no ordinary fun run. Experience a teamwork-focused, obstacle-crammed course topped off by the most epic Mudder Village Festival you’ve ever seen. The obstacles are designed to ensure you are challenged but that you and your friends will have fun doing it – this is the perfect Mudder initiation.  Once you’ve conquered the course kick back with live entertainment, epic games and challenges, food trucks, complimentary finisher drink and a never-ending supply of Mudder Nation camaraderie.

Tough Mudder 5K is untimed, so there’s no pressure, no judgement and no need to train. It’s a like-minded community of people who’ve chosen to do something different with their weekend, make new friends, make memories – and have the time of their lives doing it.

All participants across both The Classic and The 5K will start in the same start wave so your team can consist of a mix of Classic and 5K members. The first 5K start wave will be 10am each morning.

If you’ve always wanted to do a Tough Mudder but distance has been your barrier, 5K is the perfect event for you. Guaranteed Muddy Fun
