Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
Team Mission Mudder is in the final stage of its challenge as the athletes prepare for the big one - the first ever Europe's Toughest Mudder. An eight hour, overnight obstacle course, this is like nothing these athletes have ever attempted before, and with money for their chosen charities at stake they're going to have to dig deep to complete it.
Now in its fith year, Help for Heroes’ partnership with Tough Mudder has raised more than £2.5 million. Thanks to the efforts of Mudders across the country, money raised has gone towards Help for Heroes’ Sports Recovery programme, ensuring wounded, inured and sick Servicemen and women can discover the power of grassroots sport in their recovery.
To kick off episode four Tough Mudder Founder and CEO Will Dean gives us a tour of the site where our six athletes will tackle their first Tough Mudder Full course.
It's a beautiful area in Henley, Oxfordshire but sadly our Olympians won't get much time to enjoy the sights as they tackle Arctic Enema and Electroshock Therapy.
Did you miss last night's episode of Mission Mudder? It's okay, we forgive you and although we can't imagine what you could have been doing instead we understand that these things happen. So, we've recapped all of the action so you won't miss a moment.

At every event we see thousands of women from all walks of life, of all shapes and sizes and from all over the world. It made us realise that for many, taking part in Tough Mudder is part of a fitness journey - and each one looks completely different.
What is Mudder Woman?
We want to see those journeys and more importantly we want to share them - creating a new community (within the Tough Mudder family) of women who do fitness their way. So we’ve created Mudder Woman.
