5 TOP TIPS FOR A GREAT DAY SPECTATING AT TOUGH MUDDER
1. TAKE A PIC OF THE MAP
As you enter Mudder Village, you'll see a number of giant maps, please take a photo of this. Whether you're spectating around the muddy Classic and 5K courses or the city-based Urban 5K it will help you navigate Mudder Village and find everything you need. Wondering where the paper maps have gone? We're trying to save the planet here people.
2. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Pick a few obstacles to meet your team at for prime photo taking opportunities. It's fairly easy to keep track of participants on our 5K courses but if your friend or family member is running 8-10 miles we suggest picking a couple of obstacles to meet them at.
3. EXPLORE MUDDER VILLAGE
In 2019 Mudder Village will be the only place to be. Street food trucks, craft beer and a live DJ will keep the good vibes flowing while you wait for your loved ones. Don't fancy trekking round the course? This year some of our most iconic obstacles will be visible from the village, so you can take in the action from the perfect viewpoint.
Plus, we're welcoming back some great partners as well as introduced some new friends, so expect plenty of fun and games at our partner activations.
4. LIDL MUDDER
Available at all of 2019 UK events (except for Tough Mudder 5K Urban) pint-sized adventure seekers between the ages of 5-12 are invited to tackle this 1-mile, kid-friendly obstacle course. Lidl Mudder tickets are available here.
5. DON'T FORGET THESE
Running a Tough Mudder could take a team upward of 3 hours to complete. Comfortable shoes that can withstand a little mud are a must, plus a few snacks and some water and you'll be ready to spend a day soaking up all of the teamwork, fun and adventure that Tough Mudder has to offer.
It's also always worth checking the weather before you head off, so you can pack extra layers or even some suncream (in our dreams).
