What is Tough Mudder?


Tough Mudder is more than an event it’s a way of living, a community of likeminded individuals who want to escape the ordinary, leave the mundane behind them and work together to achieve something new.

Tough Mudder Global in numbers:

  • 3M+ Total Participants
  • 250+ Events since 2010
  • 10 Countries
  • 10,000 Tough Mudder Tattoos
  • $10M+ Raised for charity

In Australia over 200,000 Mudders have graced a Tough Mudder course, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities and creating lifelong friendships (even a wedding or two).

In 2019, Tough Mudder Australia is mixing things up – this is our biggest year yet and there’s no reason to not be part of it. Our events series will include the following:

  • Tough Mudder Classic – 16k course, 25 best in class obstacles designed to test teamwork, mental and physical grit. (links)
  • Tough Mudder 5k – this new 5k course is jam packed with 13 fun muddy obstacles. That’s more obstacles, less running.
  • Tougher Mudder – timed first start wave at each Classic event. This is an add on to your TM ticket and extremely limited.
  • Toughest Mudder – 12 hour race over a 8k course. The person with the most amount of k’s wins! Brutal, rewarding and completely overwhelming. If you want to push yourself – this is the event for you.

Our event series takes in South East Queensland, Melbourne and Sydney – find an event near you.

2019 brings so much more – to find out all about it, sit down, relax and take it all in here

Tough Mudder Legion. Bigger. Better. Badder.

Finishing a Tough Mudder takes your epicness to a whole new level. After completing your first Tough Mudder you’ll automatically be inducted into Tough Mudder Legion, a community of people who Get.Shit.Done. As a Legionnaire you’re considered a leader, and will do whatever it takes to get yourself, and others, to the finish line.


Tough Mudder’s full lineup of team-oriented obstacles guarantees that you’ll cross the finish line with more friends than you started with. Whether it’s through a helping hand or an extra vote of confidence, your fellow Mudders will be there for you every step of the way. Whether you arrive solo or with a team, all you need to come with is the strength to leave your fears in the parking lot and the willingness to push the boundaries your comfort zone.
