South Australia’s first-ever Tough Mudder isn’t for the faint of heart. This December, we’re giving Langhorne Creek the works, bringing our iconic obstacles and some new ones fresh from the States. For any average person, wine country would be transformed into whine country. But full-blooded Mudders will conquer the wicked mud from the Bremer River Floodplains, plough through the thick scrub and tackle the open farmland with guts, grit and glory.
Victor Harbor: 1 hr.
Gawler: 1 hr., 35 mins.

Join our team of Tough Mudder Volunteers (MVPs) and create a life-changing experience for yourself and others. Or, if you’re participating, get your supporters (who are ready for the mud, but not the shocks) to volunteer so they can still be part of your day. As an added perk, our MVPs get up to 90% off registration.
What to Bring
Don't leave home without 'em
- Ticket(s): Either print your EventBrite ticket(s) or download the EventBrite app to display your tickets on your phone when you arrive at check-in.
- Signed Waiver: Print and sign your waiver before arriving on-site. This will speed up your check-in process.

You will not be allowed in without proper identification, defined as a government-issued ID with name, signature, photo and birth date such as a driver’s license or passport. Don’t leave your ID in the car - you’ll have to go back and get it.
- Cash: Bring a pocket full of cash for concessions, food & drink and merchandise. ATMs may not be available at some sites so we strongly recommend you bring cash with you - we don't want you leaving you sad and hungry.
- Normal running shoes. Spikes or cleats are strictly prohibited.
- Gloves and beanie if cold or hat/sunglasses if hot - just make sure they're strapped on tight so they don't vanish into the mud.
- Warm/dry clothing to change into after the event.

Save time: print and sign your waiver before arriving on site.
What to Wear
Parking details and check-in times will be available about 2 weeks before the event.
PRO TIP: If you don’t want to rush to the start chute, plan to check in an hour before your start wave.
Head to the registration area with your ticket print out, photo ID and waiver to get checked-in and receive your participant packet.
If members of the same team are assigned to different start times, the entire team is permitted to join the latest start time assigned to a team member. Participants may not move to an earlier start time.
PLEASE NOTE: Wherever possible, participants have been assigned to the closest available start time to what they requested when registering for the event. However, due to demand, participants may find that they are not in the start group time they had requested. Please do not contact us requesting a time change.
Day of Event Ticket Sales
You may purchase a ticket on the day if the event is not sold out. Price will be $240 cash at the registration area. You will need photo ID and a signed waiver.
Mudder Village hosts a range of services and activities for you to access throughout the day.
The Bunker (aka Info Desk)
Get your questions answered at the bunker located within Mudder Village.
Once you walk through registration and get your face marked, head straight to the bag drop tent. Bag drop is for participants only. There is typically a $5 CASH ONLY charge for bag drop. Space is limited, so share a bag with your teammates. If you have pre-purchased bag drop, please be sure to bring your receipt with you and have your photo ID ready.
We’ll be blasting awesome pump-up music in Mudder Village throughout the entire day, along with food, beer and lots of great vibes. Mudders are welcome to sit back and relax before and after their start waves.
Food, drink and merchandise will be on sale throughout the day of the event. There will be a limited number of ATMs or EFTPOS machines so we strongly recommend you bring cash with you - we don't want you leaving sad and hungry.
Portable toilets for participants and spectators are located in the Mudder Village, once you have gone through registration. There may be some located on the course.
Lost and Found
If you find anything that doesn’t belong to you, please, be a model citizen and hand it in at The Bunker (info desk). If you lose something (trust us, this happens a lot...we once found an engagement ring in the parking lot), check at the info desk. TMHQ takes all unclaimed items at the end of the day, so if the info desk doesn’t have it, you should submit your lost item here. Anything that sits in TMHQ for over 30 days goes straight to the op shop.
Mudder Village will be full of exciting sponsor activations, make sure you stop by to enjoy the following:
Garmin - win the chance to have your Tough Mudder experience captured on the Garmin VIRB action camera.
Bosch - check out the Bosch tent for an unique post course massage experience.
Mazda - visit the Mazda BT-50 ute and have all your pre-event strappings taken care of - plus compete to win a rewarding sausage in bread.
Jack Links Beef Jerky - take to the course sporting a new Mohawk before returning to revitalise with some Beef Jerky.
Muscle Milk - have all your protein needs covered as well as a relaxing ice bath.
Double Weekend Discount
If you are truly tough and register for both days, we will give you 50% off your second day registration. Once you have registered and paid for both days, email us via our Contact Form and we will refund 50% of your Sunday registration.
If you raise more than $150 for Soldier On, you will automatically receive a $25 refund to the credit card you used to purchase your Tough Mudder registration within 6 weeks after event weekend. There is nothing more you need to do. You can find your fundraising page on EventBrite.

Tough Mudder Tattoos
Many Mudders like to get a tattoo of our logo to commemorate their achievement. We think this is great, so once you get inked, fill out a tattoo registration entry form to get free entry into a Tough Mudder event of your choice. Please note: our UK, AU and CAN venues don't allow tattoos on-site, so you'll need to find a local establishment that can oblige.
