Welcome to the 2022 Endurance Series – Tough Mudder’s innovative take on competitive endurance events. With each of the three events in the series – Tough Mudder Infinity, Toughest Mudder, and World’s Toughest Mudder – athletes are challenged to run as many obstacle course laps as they can within a fixed period of time. Here’s the low down on the Tough Mudder Endurance Series.
Tough Mudder Infinity
Tough Mudder Infinity is the perfect entry point to the series, challenging athletes to run as many kilometres as they can within 8 hours, with the freedom to choose between 5k and 15k courses for each lap. Not into running for 8-hours straight? No sweat (well…probably some sweat, but we digress) – athletes can take as long as they need between laps, with full access to the Tough Mudder Village. Participants will need to knock out 20km during the event to earn their finisher medal, but additional achievement awards are earned beginning at 30km. Meanwhile, top athletes will be chasing after the most prestigious award: a 60km gold medallion.
For those who prefer to do their running after sunset, Toughest Mudder offers the next challenge in the Endurance Series – giving athletes 12 hours overnight to complete as many laps of a 10km course as possible. Between laps, athletes will have full access to the Pit Area, where they’ll have a dedicated pit space for tents, gear, and nutrition. Official Finishers will have to fit in a minimum of 20km overnight, in addition to being on-site when the start line closes at 7am on Sunday.
World’s Toughest Mudder
Rounding out our trio of timed challenges is World’s Toughest Mudder – Tough Mudder’s marquee event at the end of the season. Every November, the Tough Mudder community gathers to answer one question: how far are they willing to go? Over the course of 24-hours, athletes take on lap after lap of a 5-mile course, jam-packed with some of Tough Mudder’s most innovative obstacles. At the center of the event is the WTM Pit – a tent-village filled to the brim with aspirational stories and mental grit. Athletes have to stick it out until at least 8am to be considered Official Finishers (and to earn the associated swag) – but for those determined to push it to the wire, sunrise is just the beginning.
The Holy Grail
Tying the Endurance Series together is the Holy Grail – a pinnacle achievement for participants that officially finish all three of the Endurance Series events within the same calendar year. Athletes that successfully earn the Holy Grail will receive a custom 9” steel chalice, with custom inlays to fit each of their finisher medals. The bragging rights are just an added bonus.
Feeling keen, get registered, and start training – adventure awaits on the never-ending courses of the 2022 Endurance Series.
