ON THE DAY

What​ ​time​ ​does​ ​the​ ​event​ ​start?

The first start wave will vary according to the event, but is usually 8am for Friday events.  You can select your start time when you register (providing your chosen wave is not full).

 

We ask you to arrive 1 hour before your official start time so you can check-in, grab your wristband, drop your belongings at bag drop, and be ready at the warm-up zone 15 minutes before your start wave.

 

Tough Mudder reserves the right to move your start time for operational reasons.  If this happens, you will be notified no less than 48 hours before the event.

What​ ​do​ ​I​ ​need​ ​to​ ​bring?
  • Your ticket/QR code (physical or electronic - on your mobile - is fine)
  • Photo ID if you don't have a copy of your QR code with you

 

Please ensure you have electronically signed your waiver in My Trumin prior to event day, so can experience fast-track check-in.

What​ ​ID​ ​do​ ​I​ ​need?​ ​What​ ​do​ ​I​ ​do​ ​if​ ​I​ ​don’t​ ​have​ ​any​ ​photo​ ​ID?

As long as you have a copy of your QR code (printed or electronically on your mobile device), you probably won't need any photo ID.  But if you don't have your QR code with you, please bring your resident ID card or your passport.

 

If you don’t have either your QR code or photo ID, please can head over to the Registration Tent where they will be able to help you.

How do I get my QR code?

Will​ ​I​ ​get​ ​muddy​ ​and/or​ ​wet?

Yes. So, please don't wear your brand new training gear.

Where​ ​can​ ​I​ ​find​ ​medical​ ​help?

First aid personnel will be located at the event base as well as out on the course. Please speak to an event official on event day if you want to know more information about where they will be located.

When​ ​do​ ​I​ ​get​ ​my​ ​t-shirt/headband?

You’ll get your Performance finisher t-shirt and headband once you’ve completed the course and crossed the finish line. These items must be claimed at the event, on the day. Tough Mudder cannot mail out items.

You can take your phone with you, but this is at your own risk. Tough Mudder cannot be held responsible for any electronic devices lost or damaged on course.

How do I get my action photos?

Just head over to our gallery page and upload a selfie to see all photos taken of you.

 

THE COURSE AND OBSTACLES

Is​ ​the​ ​event​ ​timed?

Tough Mudder 5K, Tough Mudder Classic and Mini Mudder are not a race, they are a challenge.

 

We created these events so that people can try out awesome obstacles and enjoy the camaraderie and teamwork that is integral to Tough Mudder - not worry about their time.

 

And if you want to skip an obstacle? No problem, we want you to feel comfortable. There’s no punishment for missing an obstacle, and you’ll still get your headband and t-shirt.

 

If you are looking for a competitive timed event, Tougher Mudder would be right up your street - check it out.

Is​ ​there​ ​an​ ​age/height​ ​requirement?

Tough Mudder allows those who are 14 or older on the day of the event to run at a Tough Mudder Classic or Tougher Mudder event. Anyone aged 13 or over can participate in a Tough Mudder 5K. All minors (under 18) must purchase their ticket along with a chaperone ticket and cannot purchase their ticket alone.

 

Mini Mudders must be aged between 5 and 12 years of age and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

 

IMPORTANT: Minors age 13 to 17 can participate as long as they are running with a participating chaperone who is over the age of 18. Minors must check in with their chaperones on event day.

How​ ​long​ ​is​ ​the​ ​course?

Mini Mudder is around 1.5 kilometres long.

 

Tough Mudder 5K is approximately 5 kilometres in length.

 

Tough Mudder Classic and Tougher Mudder are 10+ kilometre courses.

What​ ​will​ ​the​ ​obstacles​ ​on​ ​course​ ​be​ ​like?

Awesome. Check out the obstacles page to find out more.

 

How​ ​many​ ​obstacles​ ​will​ ​there​ ​be?

Mini Mudder has 10+ obstacles.

 

Tough Mudder 5K has at least 13 obstacles for you to tackle.

 

Tough Mudder Classic and Tougher Mudder have 25+ obstacles on offer.

What​ ​happens​ ​if​ ​I​ ​can’t​ ​do​ ​an​ ​obstacle?

There will be plenty of Mudders on course willing to give you a helping hand to get you over all of the obstacles. But if you don’t feel comfortable, you can skip any obstacle you want. You will still receive your finisher t-shirt and headband if you don’t complete all of the obstacles and no one will make you do burpees.

 

The above does not apply to the timed competitive Tougher Mudder events.

Can​ ​I​ ​skip​ ​an​ ​obstacle?

The way we see it, you are there to have fun and get a real sense of achievement at the end. If you think a particular obstacle isn't going to do this for you, just go around it - no shame there.

 

The above does not apply to the timed competitive Tougher Mudder events.

Is​ ​there​ ​a​ ​time​ ​limit​ ​to​ ​complete​ ​the​ ​course?

While there is no set time limit for completing a Tough Mudder, if in the interest of safety or in the circumstance that the course needs to close, you may be shown a modified route to take you to the finish.

 

Please listen to staff and volunteers.
