What is Europe’s Toughest Mudder? If you are into running and you have not lived behind the moon the past years I am sure you have heard about Obstacle Course Racing and mud runs. One of the biggest players in that market is Tough Mudder. It is not called a race – it’s called a challenge because the classic concept is a 10 mile mud run, which is not timed. In 2011 they started a different timed race format, the 24 hours World’s Toughest Mudder. It is a 5 mile course where people try to complete as many laps as possible.
So I was quite delighted to hear TMHQ (that is Tough Mudder Head Quarters) announce a new race format that bridges the gap between a normal Tough Mudder and the 24 hours WTM. The name of the new race is Toughest Mudder and it is an 8 hour overnight lapped 5 mile course and basically a shorter version of WTM. For 2017 five events were on schedule in the US and Canada, and one in the UK, also known as Europe’s Toughest Mudder.
