Tough Mudder weekend highlights Include:

Tough Mudder Full is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course designed to pull participants out of their comfort zone. With no winners or clocks to race against, it is not about how fast you can cross the finish line; it is about teamwork and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.

Tougher Mudder takes the signature Tough Mudder Full course and adds a competitive twist. The first start wave of the day allows Mudders to push themselves to a new level. In addition to gaining first access to the course, participants will also get unique finisher gear, an official course time, and the ability to win prize money.

Tough Mudder Half is a five-mile mud and obstacle course featuring some of Tough Mudder’s signature obstacles, but excluding the more extreme elements such as ice and electricity.
