Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
While every Tough Mudder course has a “no whining” policy, this year, we have no choice but to be a little lax on this rule. The reason? Cry Baby-- Tough Mudder’s latest tearjerker of an obstacle that stirred up a media frenzy earlier this year.
An enclosed structure filled with a (safe) tear gas-like concoction brewed by our mad-minded course team, Cry Baby will have your eyes flowing with tears of, um, laughter--yeah, laughter.
Mark down this date in your calendar as the day you will travel to Las Vegas to push your own limits farther than you've ever pushed them before. The day you will stop saying, "I'll do that someday" and start saying "F*ck it, sign me up". The day you will embark on one hell of an adventure. Also known as, the day of World's Toughest Mudder 2015.
Perth and Adelaide Mudders,
We would like to advise that after several months of review and planning we will not be holding a Tough Mudder event in Perth or Adelaide in 2015.
We want you to know that the decision not to hold an event in 2015 was not made lightly and this decision does not mean Tough Mudder will not return to these areas in the future.
For a half-decade, thousands upon thousands of children have witnessed their parents and grandparents; uncles and aunts; babysitters and teachers boldly traverse Tough Mudder’s 10 to 12-mile obstacle course.
They’ve watched on in inspiration with one thing in mind: When will it be my turn?
This year, however, we’re silencing the are-we-there-yets with the release of Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder, the very first kid-sized obstacle course of its kind.
Firstly thanks for your patience, we know you’re keen to find out details of our full Tough Mudder 2015 event calendar. We want you to know we’re just finalising our last two event venues for South East Queensland and Sydney, and will be sharing these exciting venues details with you very soon. The great news is these venues are so close to the cities the car trip home will be the easiest part of the entire day.
The South East Queensland and Sydney events will join the October Melbourne event to form the complete 2015 Tough Mudder Australian calendar.
Look atop any list of history’s most hair-raising jobs, and you’ll find ‘test pilot’ soaring high in the rankings. And while we’re no NASA, you might be surprised that we’ve got some modern-day test pilots of our own.
Throughout our entire off season and a great deal of our event season, the Alpha Testers of our Obstacle Innovation Lab put their daredevil reputations on the line testing our new obstacles for the very first time.
They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection. Well we have a message for They: Oops. For 2015, our course designers have made some awesome updates to our signature Tough Mudder obstacles.
Here are some new-and-improved challenges you’ll encounter in 2015.
In addition to tackling dozens of adrenaline-inducing obstacles, on Tough Mudder event day, Mudders must also run through a gauntlet of emotions. From start line nerves to finish line euphoria, the emotions that Mudders experience are as diverse and exhilarating as the obstacles themselves.
And while every Mudder journey is unique, there are three moments you’re absolutely guaranteed to have on a Tough Mudder course.
