Event Information

create your team - Bring Your Friends

This might be a new look for Tough Mudder but our core values are the still same and you’re going to need a team to see you over our obstacles. Make sure you create your team no later than two weeks before the event (two Mondays prior) to ensure your friends and family head out on course at the same time as you.

Start Times and Teams

Can I run with my friends/family?

Absolutely, Tough Mudder is all about teamwork and running as part of a team is all part of the fun. When you register online, select your preferred start time window (your final start time will be emailed to you 1 week before the event), and make sure you register yourselves as an official team at least 1 week before the event. Start times are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Please arrive 45 minutes before your assigned start time (which you will receive via email 1 week before your event) to ensure you can check in, drop your bag, and head towards the start line in plenty of time. Start times will be strictly enforced so don’t be late.

If your friends and family register separately, ensure they select the same start time window and ensure they are added to our official team.

How to Get To Clifton Down

We’re in Bristol folks. Getting to Tough Mudder has never been so easy.

Public transport links around Clifton Down are awesome. You can get the bus from Bristol city centre in about 25 mins. You can plan your bus route at the Travel West website.

Once you arrive at the park, signage or volunteers will be available to help you find your way to the event village – located only a short walk from all the stations mentioned above.

There will be no parking organised by Tough Mudder for TM5K events. There may be local parking available but it’s your responsibility to find and organise parking if needed.

Free Spectators

Yeah, you read that right – spectators get in for FREE at Tough Mudder 5K events. That means your mum, dad, partner, the entire extended family and your next door neighbour can all come and experience the excitement of Mudder Village and cheer you on.

What’s more, all the most exciting obstacles will be within touching distance of Mudder Village, so there’s no chance of them missing you (or not taking enough photos). Plus they can enjoy the street food and a few drinks to celebrate as well.

Course Information

The Tough Mudder 5K course will circle around the Mudder Village so that all your friends and family can see you tackle all the best obstacles. The obstacles will be evenly spaced around the course so you won't have to run continuously for very long.

Here's an example of what one of our Tough Mudder 5K courses will look like:

You can read all about our world-class obstacles HERE.

Can my friends/family come to spectate?

Absolutely, spectating at TM5K is FREE and there will be plenty to keep your friends and family entertained. There is no need to acquire a spectator ticket - simply come down on the day.

How many obstacles will there be?

There will be 10+ obstacles spread out throughout the course for you to tackle, including new TM5K obstacles and some favourites from the Tough Mudder course.

What time does the event start?

The first and last start waves will vary according to the event, but is usually 9am-2pm. We ask you to show up 45 minutes before your official start time, which you will receive via email 1-2 weeks prior to your event.
Our Up Lates event is Friday night only, and starts at 6pm (East London - Stratford venue only).

What is included with my registration?

All participants will receive entry to Tough Mudder 5K, access to run the course, a finisher t-shirt, and of course the all-important finisher headband. Oh, and don't forget a refreshing finisher pint.
