Phillip Island Circuit features mostly flat open farmland with lakes, marshy stretches, patches of woodland, and tons of mud pits stretching along the coast. With ample amounts of thick Melbourne mud to work with, our main mud features, Kiss of Mud® and Mud Mile®, will have no problem caking you with additional kilos of mud. This course is tough as sh*t.

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 electric shocks) to volunteer so they can still be part of your day. As an added perk, our MVPs get up to 90% off registration.

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.

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.

- Not optional: Please arrive fully hydrated and take advantage of water stations on course.
Parking & Check-In
When you arrive
Before and after the event
Team, double weekend & more
All participants and spectators must sign a waiver in order to enter the event. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver for them.
Save time: print and sign your waiver before arriving on site. Waivers will be posted in this section about 2 weeks before the event.
What to Wear
All attendees must buy a parking ticket to park at the event. All parking is on-site, but we have reserved a limited number of premium parking spaces close to Mudder Village. Upgrading to a premium parking space also guarantees you a spot closest to Mudder Village no matter what time you arrive on site. These spots are only available online. Spaces will sell out quickly, so figure out your carpool and reserve now.
Head to the registration area with your ticket print out, photo ID and waiver to get checked-in and receive your participant packet.
PRO TIP: If you don’t want to rush to the start chute, plan to check in an hour before your start wave.
Keep your eyes on your inbox this week as start times are being communicated via email. All times will be assigned by Friday 3/21. Our online start time lookup tool is on the way, to be launched later this week.
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 $200 cash at the registration area. You will need photo ID and a signed waiver.
The base area, known as '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 info desk 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 make sure to bring your receipt with you and have your photo ID ready.
We’ll be blasting awesome pump-up music in the base area 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 you sad and hungry.
Portable toilets for participants and spectators are located in the base area, 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.
If you are on a team of 6 teammates of more, you qualify for a team discount. Check back at the end of March for updated instructions on how to claim yours. Visit the Mudder Savings page for details.
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.

The Mudder of all Obstacle Courses is Back
Tough Mudder has been hard at work on a labor of love to make this year’s event which will be held Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18 at Plantation Field in Coatesville even more challenging than loyal Mudders have come to expect. They have re-defined old obstacles and given birth to new ones like the Birth Canal where you must crawl under a deceptively heavy, water-filled liner which is pushing down on you as you head toward daylight.READ ARTICLE >>
Tips for Preparing for a Tough Mudder Obstacle Event from Trainer Kyle Railton
Even the strongest athletes struggle through a Tough Mudder course, which might require competitors to crawl through mud and under barbed wire (an obstacle known as “Kiss of Mud”) or climb up a 25-foot scaffold, latch onto a fireman’s pole or slide through a giant ring of fire and into a tank of water.READ ARTICLE >>
From pre-event to post-event, our timeline makes sure you never skip a beat.
Our photographers will be out there on the course taking action shots of you and your teammates. In the week after the event, stay tuned for an email with your photos and go to our Facebook page to view the event photo album. In the meantime, go check out our galleries on Mudder Nation.
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.
