Tough Mudder Announces New Championship Series
3 Oct, 2017
Tough Mudder continues to expand its event offerings and expansion into the competitive obstacle racing arena with the addition of three Tougher Mudder Regional Championships and its own Tougher Mudder World Championship.
Tougher Mudder was introduced this year at traditional Tough Mudder ten plus mile events. The Tougher Mudder heat takes place the first heat of the morning and lets those who want to race, compete for cash prizes and bragging rights. Announced today, Tough Mudder is continuing to build on the Tougher Mudder heats offering regional and world championships and $50,000 dollars in prizes.
The Tougher Mudder Championship Series is based on the same core Tougher Mudder format that Mudder Nation has been taking on throughout 2017, including 10 miles of rugged terrain and 20+ signature Tough Mudder obstacles, with a few small twists:
Unique challenges on course (including obstacle variations)
The ability to qualify for the Tougher Mudder World Championship
Penalty loops for obstacle failures
