Looking for a new fitness challenge for you and your friends in 2020? Tough Mudder obstacle courses and mud runs take place all across the UK.
Each event varies in difficulty and involves a variety of different obstacles designed to put your teamwork skills to the test.
What is Tough Mudder?
The classic Tough Mudder run:
- includes 25 obstacles
- is 8 to 10 miles long
- will take you out of your comfort zone
- pushes you to the limits
- involves lots of mud—so be prepared to get messy!
After you’ve been pushed to the limits and finally crossed the finish line, you’ll be rewarded with a finisher t-shirt, headband and a pint of beer at the Mudder Village. There’ll also be some action photos (sure to be your next profile picture) and a variety of street food to chow down on.
