By TMHQ | 8 May, 2019

 

For any Tough Mudder participant what to wear on the day can be a concern. Sticky mud, cold water and plenty of moving about, your event day outfit needs to withstand it all. 

Now try quadrupling the number of hours on course and dropping the tempurature - a lot. Europe's Toughest Mudder demands everything from Mudders and whatever they choose to wear.

Our brand new for 2019 apparel partner Dare 2b are here to help though, below you'll find their top picks for men and women taking on 12 hours of ovrenight obstacle epicness.
