When we ask our participants why they choose to take on Tough Mudder, time and time again we hear people saying things like, “I wanted a goal so I would have motivation” or, “I wasn’t sure I could do it, so I wanted to test myself”. Humans are a goal-orientated bunch and we just love having something to work towards, something to strive for and most of all we love to achieve our goals. Enter Tough Mudder Milestones.
What is Tough Mudder Milestones?
Put simply, Tough Mudder Milestones is a serious of virtual Challenges based on distance. Choose from a running Milestone, a cycling Milestone or an elevation Milestone. There are even Milestones specifically designed to be tackled by a team, so you can achieve something incredible with your mates by your side.
Once you’ve picked your perfect Milestone you have until the end of the year to achieve what you’ve aspired to BUT we’ll always be encouraging you to push yourself harder. For example this month if you complete Stride 100 you could be in with the chance of winning a pair of tickets to a Tough Mudder event.
Who is Tough Mudder Milestones For?
Anyone. Seriously. Yes the distances are spicy (these are Challenges you know) but they are achievable by anyone no matter their fitness level. Take Stride 100. 100 miles might sound totally ridiculous but if you break it up into small chunks day-by-day it’s doable in one month. If you want to get fitter or start running or hiking in your local area then a Milestone is the perfect way to get motivated and do it.
Milestones aren’t just great for those of us starting out though. If you’re already a regular runner, cyclist or hiker then use Milestones to push you out side of your comfort zone. Or, get rewarded for something you’re already doing – we won’t tell anyone.
What do I get When I Complete a Tough Mudder Milestone?
For each Milestone we’ll reward you with a limited edition collectible coin. They’re basically the good bit of a medal and can be easily displayed so everyone knows what you’ve achieved.
How is Tough Mudder Milestones Different to the Other Tough Mudder Challenges?
Good question. Tough Mudder Milestones is all about simplicity. You choose between running, cycling and elevation, select your distance and off you go. Our other Tough Mudder Challenges, including the Marvel Series and Virtual Events are more varied. For example if you take on The Avengers you’ll do some running, some workouts and some creative tasks. If you choose to take on a Virtual Event you’ll be running a fair bit (5 mile laps, as many as you can in 12 hours for our recent Equinox Ultra event). But in between the running you’ll have physical and mental challenges. Capeesh?
