Now, it's Toughest Mudder at midnight

Now, it's Toughest Mudder at midnight

Tough Mudder Australia has announced the launch of 'Toughest Mudder', a gruelling eight-hour obstacle course built to challenge the strength and stamina of the toughest in 2018.

The early morning event, and we do mean early morning - it launches at midnight! - will be held for the first time in Australia in Woodfordia, north west of Brisbane between the Tough Mudder half and full events on Saturday May 19 and Sunday.

The Toughest Mudder course pushes participants to see how many times they can make it around the looped course in eight hours with the winning male and female each taking home $5,000.

After the course closes after the half event on Saturday afternoon, it will re-open at midnight with brand new obstacles and challenges.

Tough Mudder Australia Marketing Director, IMG, Paul Mudge said, "We have some of the most competitive Mudders in the world right here in Australia and we are stoked to be able to offer them a shot at Toughest Mudder on our home turf.

"Toughest Mudder takes teamwork, stamina and mental grit to the next level, over an eight-hour period after midnight. Ultimately a single competitor's event, it still requires a lot of teamwork and encouragement to overcome certain obstacles and make it across the finish line."

Spanning four countries - the US, UK, Germany and now Australia - each of the Toughest Mudder event weekends will also feature full and half events.

Tough Mudder Inc.'s chief executive and founder, Will Dean, said, "The Toughest Mudder event series expands our global footprint as an industry leader.

“Our commitment towards innovation is demonstrated by providing new experiences for the fast-growing active lifestyle and endurance sports communities, encouraging team-building and facilitating World's Toughest Mudder training and competition."

• Later this month, Tough Mudder Sydney, will be held in Glenworth Valley with more than 12,000 Legionnaires and new Mudders getting down and dirty, through thick scrub, winding trails and neck-deep mud.

Founded in 2010 with the launch of the full event series of 18-20km obstacle courses, Tough Mudder Inc. has since grown to become a leading active lifestyle company and leader in sports video content creation and distribution.

With more than 2.5 million participants globally to date, Tough Mudder Inc. will have hosted more than 130 events worldwide this year.
