Tough Mudder is just as much a spectator sport as it is a participant event, and we welcome all spectators.

Whether you’re coming to watch a loved one or just want to check out the action to see what it’s all about – you’re guaranteed an action packed day of laughs and memories.

Our Epic Mudder Village is packed with sponsor activations, Happy Ending our Finisher Obstacle and our brand new obstacle the Gauntlet, a refreshing bar and of course delicious food. We also create a spectator route which takes you out on course to take in some of the obstacles and watch your Mudders tackle the course.

Anyone who wants access to the course or event will need to have a spectator pass to enter. Spectator tickets are available to purchase through the standard registration form as a ticket add-on, as a stand-alone ticket four weeks out from the event or on-site. For those that have already purchased their ticket but didn’t add the spectator ticket, they can do this post registration through your My Events Portal – A link to the portal is found at the bottom of your confirmation email or through the following link:

Please note that on-site prices are higher than online. Anyone aged 13 years old or under is free. That's right, free. No need to sign them up. Just bring them along on event weekend. Spectator tickets that are purchased through the portal or through the registration process will automatically added to the same QR code as your ticket and there will not be an updated confirmation email send. Spectator tickets purchased separately within four weeks of the event should receive a separate QR code and confirmation.



No matter how prepared you think your are or how far away your event is, our friends from Anytime Fitness have created a training plan to get you Mudder ready.
