Join the Best Team on the Planet

Are you awesome at helping others conquer their challenges? Then we want you to join our team as a Tough Mudder Volunteer. Our Volunteers are the driving force behind our team on event day.

As the premier obstacle course in the world, we have something for everyone who wants to volunteer, from being the first to greet thousands of Mudders, cheering them on as they jump into a dumpster full of ice or putting those hard-earned headbands on Mudders. Whatever you do as a Mudder volunteer, you’ll be at the heart of it all, creating life-changing experiences for everyone – Including yourself.

  • Attend the entirety of your shift. Full Day shift is 8hr+ and Half Day Shift is 5hr+. Our volunteers play a critical role at our events. If you don’t show up, arrive late, leave early or don’t understand your role, it affects the event experience of thousands of Mudders.

So many laughs were had and the staff and volunteers were awesome.
