Welcome to the frozen, on fire, wet, barb-wired world of Tough Mudder - where adventure racing starts to look a lot more like hazing.

To understand Tough Mudder’s rapidly spreading appeal, you must look at the event format, designed after British Special Forces exercises.

Each event covers approximately 10 to 12 miles, with 35 military obstacles thrown in to test your strength and thermoregulatory system. Some of the things you might conquer: the Chernobyl Jacuzzi, a neon-colored ice bath resembling radioactive waste; Electroshock Therapy, a field of wires juiced up with 10,000 volts of electricity; and Everest, a quarter-pipe covered in cooking spray that requires teamwork to get up.

Are you ready to get muddy?

Our structured training program is proven to condition you for the physical and mental tests of obstacle course racing.

This comprehensive and progressive guide will establish an optimum foundation of fitness; increase strength relative to body weight, cardiovascular and muscular stamina, durability, and mental toughness.

The plan consists of The Top 10 Tough Mudder Tips, The Ultimate Nutrition Plan and a 12-Week Tough Mudder Training Plan.
