My Regional Toughest Mudder Gear List

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.

As all the Regional Toughest Mudder start at at midnight and finish at 8:30 a.m. you will run at least half of the race in the dark. Also Tough Mudder Headquarters (TMHQ) will have a lot of water obstacles, so I will definitely bring wetsuit gear, but not a full wetsuit.

Also the pit area will be a big tent with about half a table of space per person it is not necessary to bring a tent. Unless you want to camp there which all the Brits love.

I am grouping my Toughest Mudder gear list by use. I will include stuff for various types of weather just to be prepared for everything. Of course gear preferences depend on everyone’s individual needs, so of course you can use other brands. I am not sponsored by any brands, so I am just listing the ones I like. If you think something is missing let me know
