Tough Mudder is back! After hitting African soil for the first time in 2018, you can expect even bigger obstacles and even more mud! 

Tough Mudder is a 16km or 8km course of mud and obstacles built to test your mental grit and camaraderieWe are a team-oriented challenge with no winner, no finisher medal, no clock to race against—just an ice cold drink and a few good scrapes from a day spent outside and free from everyday BS. 


We are for anyone who has ever followed their gut, tried to defy gravity, chosen “dare” over “truth,” taken risks, sought thrills, or is generally awesome at life. Turns out, it's all we've been training for. We are made for this!


There are three courses – Tough Mudder Full, Tough Mudder Half and Tougher Mudder for those with a competitive spirit.

The Tough Mudder Full is a 16km course with 20+ World Class obstacles, including the notorious Arctic Enema and Electro Shock Therapy.

The Tough Mudder Half is run along an 8km course with 13 of the 20+ World Class obstacles.

The Tougher Mudder is a timed event where participants compete for honours over the Tough Mudder Full course. This category also serves as a qualifier for the Toughest Mudder series – an 8 hour night OCR and the World’s Toughest Mudder – a 24 hour OCR.

Tough Mudder South Africa is destined to become the premier OCR, testing both professional athletes and passionate OCR participants. It is an exceptional team building event for any size of business.
