For those of you not familiar with the world of extreme endurance obstacle course racing, let me explain this unique event to you. World’s Toughest Mudder is a 24h obstacle course race oragnized by Tough Mudder. It is a lap format, where athletes try to complete as many laps as possble within the 24 hour period. World’s Toughest Mudder was first held in 2011 in New Jersey, and after having been held in Lake Las Vegas for 4 years it moved to Atlanta this year.
When I first signed up for World’s Toughest Mudder I was really confused about what to use for this grueling 24h race (you can read about my experience here). As this race is equally about gear as it is about training (you can check out my post about WTM training here), I decided to publish my World’s Toughest Mudder gear list here on my blog and keep it updated regularly. You can also find some great ressources about the World’s Toughest Mudder equipment on the WTM Community Facebook group. Please bear in mind that a lot of the gear also depends on individual preferences.
With England’s Toughest Mudder just two months away it is time to revise my Toughest Mudder gear list based on my experiences from last year. I am publishing this here as a reference for newbies to the Toughest Mudder series. This list is different from my World’s Toughest Mudder gear list, which I will publish in due course.
