Same Awesome Venue, New Course
Set within the rolling hills of St Anne’s Winery, this is the perfect introduction to the world of Tough Mudder Half Melbourne Presented by Merrell, with our 9km Half format. Take your first step towards a community of 2 million strong as you get down and dirty.
9km & 10+ obstacles
Challenge yourself with some of our most iconic Tough Mudder obstacles. Yes the Tough Mudder Half doesn’t have the ice or the electricity, but it guarantees a lot of mud and plenty of laughs – and then head for a vino.
We're excited to announce that we've recently lowered the age limit, so mudders over the age of 14 can now participate in the HALF only with a guardian/chaperone who is over 18.
Every Participant ticket purchase includes:
Headband, Performance Finisher Tee, Beer, Insurance.
During registration you have the option of purchasing Ticket Protection for an extra $10. Find out about what is covered here.
All spectators are welcome. Anyone who wants access to the course or event will need to have a spectator pass to enter. Spectators tickets are sold in advance online and on-site. Please note that on-site prices are higher than online. Spectators under the age of 13-years old are free. That's right, free. No need to sign them up. Just bring them along on event weekend to spectate.
No matter how prepared you think your are or how far away your event is, our friends at Virgin Active have a training plan to get you Mudder ready.
Tough Mudder is excited to announce that our Official Charity Partner for the 2017 Season is beyondblue.
beyondblue want every Australian to achieve their best possible mental health and exercise can be a great way to start. We know it boosts physical health, but it can also benefit mental well-being and exercising in a group is a fantastic way to make social connections.
We would love for you to join the beyondblue Team, to run in support of the 3 million Australians currently living with depression and anxiety. By joining our team and raising funds, you're helping to improve the lives of people affected by depression, anxiety and suicide and raise awareness on the work we do across Australia.
