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:
