The Tough Mudder Competitive Series

Quest For The 2018 Holy Grail

The 2018 Competitive Series Is Here

Tough Mudder has always been about pushing yourself to be the best that you can be. The introduction of the Tough Mudder Competitive Series gives Mudder Nation a chance to compete for global recognition, win prize money and to better their best.

While each of these events is a race, it’s a race against the clock, against the lap counter and against yourself. The core Tough Mudder values of teamwork, camaraderie and personal accomplishment will continue to be the driving force on Tougher and Toughest Mudder courses around the globe.

Through brand new competitive events like Tougher, Toughest, and World’s Toughest, Mudders now have a goal to strive towards, and a chance to show the world - and more importantly, themselves - what they’re truly made of.

The Pledge

Just like every previous Tough Mudder event, there will be a pledge to start:

As a Tough Mudder, I pledge that
I understand this event is a race... but not an excuse to be a selfish jerk
I will uphold the Tough Mudder values of teamwork and camaraderie
I will help my fellow competitors complete the course
I will not whine... losers whine
I recognise that in life the race is long... and in the end, only really with myself.
