This looks super fun! what chances does a 38 yr old smoker have in this? is this even doable in a couple months preparation? i might consider going if there are enough LP guys in one event haha

really thought this was a monster truck 4x4 event

Random bump for those who didn't see this thread before, and to those who might have forgotten about it.

I'm still going to this event, right now I have a team of 4 who have paid and are training, and we'll have 1-2 more for sure within a few months time.

I added some videos from the most recent Tough Mudder events. They're basically 2-3 minute clips of the obstacle course + people from various events.

Shameless bump:

Congratulations! You finished in the top 5% at Tough Mudder Southeast/Midlands & have qualified for World's Toughest Mudder 2012! On 17 & 18 November, Big Mudder will be delivering the baddest, most epic Tough Mudder course to date in Englishtown, New Jersey where extreme Mudders from around the world will come together and compete over 24 hours to determine who the Toughest Mudders in the world are in 2012.


The event was less tough than advertised but very good fun nonetheless, anyone done one recently?

I wouldn't get too hyped for this. I've done one and a few others similar to this (like Spartan race) and I have to say it's nothing really like this event "trailer." If you're a front runner in the event, nothing seems ready when you first get there, and if you're in the middle of the pack, expect a lot of waiting at each obstacle as those in front of you need time to climb, maneuver or whatever, and the line builds. I definitely get wet everytime, but honestly, it's easier to come out dirtier from a rainy trail run. It is by far more a social event for friends and having fun than this hardcore, grit your teeth, only the best of the best could do, etc. Very misleading trailer.

Btw, fact #1 is absolutely a stupid thing to claim. I would of quit a long time ago if that was the case.


  Triathlons, marathons, and other lame-ass mud runs are more stressful than fun. Not Tough Mudder.


Wat? I've never met one person who found triathlons or marathons and said it was even the least bit stressful. The bold part is pretty accurate though. I would however, do it again with friends, because it is a lot of fun. Can't really say it's accomplishing though. I'm trying to paint a picture because it's irritating watching the trailer and then knowing what it's really like. Have fun though.

Thanks, seems like a good statement, from the trailer, I did kind of get the fact it seemed a lot more social than challenging (even if probably challenging obv), but they do make it look like the hardest thing ever, but at the same time, I think they also make it look like a big party where you shouldnt take anything serious and just have fun with friends and meet new people

^ My friends and I who went to the Diablo Grande event in Patterson, California. (NorCal)

I'm the nerd with the goggles on, on the far right. (I wear prescription glasses, so I wore goggles so I wouldn't get anything in my already fucked up eyes and make me quit the run. This helped out cuz there was A LOT of dust and mud that was getting all over from people running up and down hill in front of you and the mud bathes you were jumping into.)

During the last obstacle, which is this area where you get electrocuted, I got zapped 4-5 times. Toward the end, I got zapped and fell to my knees, getting a deep scrape on one of my knees which had me limping for 6-7 days. I'll start running again within the next 2 weeks so I keep my legs in shape.

I'll post pics of my injuries if my friend every posts the pics from his iPhone.

To add more: The event was a great first experience in obstacles and long run events, as I had never done one before, and we didn't train as hard as we wanted, but we were able to run 11 miles in our weekly warm-ups, so we didn't worry too much about the 12 miles at Tough Mudder. Also, they didn't have some of the upper-body obstacles like the rope climb you see in a high school gym, so I was sad about that. I'm pretty skinny, but I can carry my own body weight pretty well.

The first 5-6 miles kicked our butts though, as it was uphill for like 85% of it, which slowed us down more than we expected. I was surprised though, because there were people who had to be escorted out on golf carts because they couldn't past the first 5 mile climb, which was sad. Those people paid a minimum of $125 to be escorted out before reaching halfway.

Another sad part was the people who got hurt by twisting their ankles and such, during the last 2 miles of the event, who couldn't finish. The last 2 miles was pretty much flat ground with obstacles, so those people finished the hardest levels and couldn't reach the end.

In conclusion, I'd recommend this for anyone who likes doing adventurous stuff. It lets you know how out of shape you really are. It's also a great event to do with your friends, since you're usually helping each other and having a great time. I'll go again next year.

Thanks for your post. I hate running so much that I think i wouldn't ever take part in one of these races

Yea i went - but i went with friends who were in worse shape than me, was really really fun especially the mud mile but i honestly didnt feel "tested" because of the pace we went at lol!

worst obstacle for me was a low electric wire one where you had to crawl through over a plastic ground sheet while they spray water at you. when we got there everyone was just standing looking at it. so i dive in and start crawling through all hoses direct at me, got zapped a tonne felt like someone stamping on your back lol

Grats on top 5% teej, how fast did you do it in? going worlds toughest?

obligatory finish pic, short one on the right is me hah:

+1 on the electric wire was the worst obstacle.

Finished in 2:15, but spent a fair amount of timing waiting round for team mates early on/waiting for my mate to get over the last wall. I won't be doing worlds toughest as ive been seriously ill the past few months. Was shitting myself before the event and it definately wasnt as tough as advertised, but it was a lot of fun!

The electric obstacles suck. My body would freeze up when I got shocked.

Did you guys have the same black guy at your event who is in all the promo videos?
