The 2018 Competitive Series Is Here

Tough Mudder has always been about pushing yourself to be the best that you can be. The introduction of the Tough Mudder Competitive Series gives Mudder Nation a chance to compete for global recognition, win prize money and to better their best.

While each of these events is a race, it’s a race against the clock, against the lap counter and against yourself. The core Tough Mudder values of teamwork, camaraderie and personal accomplishment will continue to be the driving force on Tougher and Toughest Mudder courses around the globe.

Through brand new competitive events like Tougher, Toughest, and World’s Toughest, Mudders now have a goal to strive towards, and a chance to show the world – and more importantly, themselves – what they’re truly made of.

Discovery Tougher Mudder:


Discovery Tougher Mudder takes our signature course and adds a competitive, timed twist. This first start wave of the day allows Mudders to push themselves to a new level, while still maintaining our core values of teamwork and camaraderie. In addition to gaining first access to the course, participants will also get Discovery Tougher Mudder exclusive challenges, unique finisher gear, an official course time, and the ability to win prize money. This timed, competitive race wave is the first step in the Tough Mudder Competitive Series. Find new limits at Discovery Tougher Mudder, or if you’re insane enough, complete a Discovery Tougher Mudder, Toughest Mudder and World’s Toughest Mudder in the same year, and achieve the elusive Holy Grail. *Tougher ticket must be purchased as an add on to a standard Tough Mudder Full entry.


The Tougher Mudder Championship Series embodies the same core Discovery Tougher Mudder format that Mudders have been crushing throughout 2018, with the inclusion of unique challenges on course, ability to qualify for the Tougher Mudder World Championship, penalty loops for obstacle failures, and higher prizing per event.

South Africa’s Discovery Toughest Mudder – 2019


Discovery Toughest Mudder is an 8-hour obstacle course that takes teamwork, stamina and mental grit to the extreme—all between the hours of midnight and 8AM. With multiple regions, geographies and hardcore contenders from across the globe – Discovery Toughest Mudder is the ultimate challenge for Mudders insane enough to push themselves beyond anything they’ve ever experienced. For those that want to take it one step further, Toughest is the perfect training ground for World’s Toughest Mudder, so just do it, already!


Our course designers and engineers are the most creative, forward-thinking, and maybe even slightly insane team of innovators on the planet. Whether they’re trekking the globe for inspiration, or testing new ideas in the lab, they’re constantly working to make sure our obstacles completely blow your mind. The masterminds behind our heart pounding obstacles have made brand new obstacles and challenges, exclusively for Discovery Toughest Mudder participants. More details to be released soon.


While this event, unlike a regular Discovery Tough Mudder event, has winners, it does not have losers. Discovery Toughest Mudder is a challenge that brings together and celebrates the worldwide obstacle course community, as well as Mudder Nation. Laps may be tracked, but the same core Tough Mudder values – teamwork, camaraderie, and leaving no Mudder behind – ring truer than ever on this course.


Discovery Tough Mudder South Africa is considering hosting the first Discovery Toughest Mudder event in Africa in 2019, but will depend on the level of interest from the local OCR community.

Worlds Toughest Mudder:


World’s Toughest Mudder is the most extreme, insane, imposing, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping 24-hour obstacle course challenge on the planet. The man, woman and/or team (2+ participants) that completes the most 5-mile (8km) course laps at this outsized event in a 24 hour period will be crowned champion. Individuals and teams who complete 25, 50, 75, or 100 miles will be honored for their efforts. World’s Toughest Mudder is open to athletes of all levels. However, to be a contender for prize money competitors must be a top finisher at a 2018 Toughest Mudder event.


World’s Toughest Mudder 2018 is a 5-mile (8km) circuit race peppered with 20-25 of Tough Mudder’s biggest, baddest, most insane obstacles, including never-before-seen 2018 obstacles and a handful of World’s Toughest-only obstacles, at a rate of 4 tougher-than-you-ever-thought-possible obstacles per mile. “The Pit” is where competitors set up camp in order to rest, recharge, and refuel during the event, aided by up to 4 “Pit Crew” members per participant. Event winners will be the man, woman, and/or team that complete the most laps in a 24-hour period.


The course is designed by the same mad (sadistic is a little strong, but it’s close) minds that deliver Tough Mudder’s world-class obstacles and events every season. However, whether you’ve completed one Mudder or 200, you’ve never encountered obstacles like the ones you’ll find at World’s. In addition to debuting out of this world (see what we did there?) obstacles that’ll be found on course at 2018 Tough Mudder events, this insane course features exclusive obstacles tailored to the harsh landscape and 5 unique miles of World’s Toughest Mudder.


While this event, unlike a regular Tough Mudder event, has winners, it does not have losers. World’s Toughest Mudder is a challenge that brings together and celebrates the worldwide obstacle course community, as well as Mudder Nation. Laps may be tracked, but the same core Tough Mudder values – teamwork, camaraderie, and leaving no Mudder behind – ring truer than ever on this course. Adding to the camaraderie, the course features “The Pit” – an area where all participants and “Pit Crew” camp, sleep, recover, and refuel.


The World’s Toughest Mudder, after four years in Las Vegas, heads for Atlanta, Georgia in 2018. The dates are set for 10 & 11 November, 2018 and with the race happening in Fairburn, Georgia about 40 minutes outside of Atlanta.
