Tough Mudder

Tough mudder

The Tough Mudder Series

Tough Mudder Classic is a team-oriented obstacle course over 8-10 miles, designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge with world-class obstacles you won't find anywhere else. 

Like Tough Mudder Classic, Tough Mudder 5K is not a race, it’s a challenge. Designed to test teamwork and grit on a 5K, 13 obstacle course without fire, ice or electricity, it’s all the mud in a shorter distance.

Thanks to our incredible mudders, nobody will have to face living with epilepsy alone.

Registration fee: £30
Minimum sponsorship pledge: £295

So if I understand correctly if I register direct with Tough Mudder we dont have a £295 sponsorship to find but would we still get the support pack with vest etc?
Obviously I will be looking at registering through Epilepsy Action but just asking the question if there are no places left.

Hi Karl,

Yes that’s correct. If you register with Tough Mudder directly there is no minimum sponsorship target, we just ask you to raise what you can. You will still receive the same supporter pack and vest as you would if your signed up through Epilepsy Action.
We hope to welcome you to the team soon

I have received registration details now and its asking for a team name, if I put Epilepsy Action would that ensure I run with other participants running for the same cause?
