If you think Tough Mudder UK is extreme…think again.
What is World’s Toughest Mudder?
World’s Toughest Mudder is an extreme 24 hour obstacle course challenge. When we say extreme we mean a pulse-pounding, heart stopping EXTREME. Up to 1,500 participants attend this event which is held only once a year. Oh and did we forget to mention there is prize money to be won at the end💸.
This year the event took place at Atmore, Alabama🐊🐍 which is just under an hour outside Pensacola where we held our incredible famous brunch for all participants & volunteers.
You had me at brunch.
Oooo yes we thought we did 😜This is not just any ordinary brunch this is the “ World’s Toughest Brunch”. Most participants from the event attend the final hurrah ending the weekend on a high celebrating with awards, prizes, eating, drinking, and basking in on their Mudder experience.
Massive shout out to our UK team.
Over 100 participants from the UK flew out to take part in WTM. Safe to say they smashed it 👏
Let’s get down to the good stuff.
We got to witness some new obstacle Innovations at World’s Toughest Mudder 2022. Here are a few of our favourites from the event.
🥁Drum roll please…
JUST CHUTE ME
Climb up the front of Mudderhorn. A freefall-style slide gets you down from the back of the obstacle and into a pool of water.
CHUNKY MONKEY 🐒
An angled monkey-bar climb over a water pit, utilizing hanging tires and banana-shaped climbing grips on the ascent, with monkey bars on the descent.
DOUBLE RAINBOW (basically Well Swung on steroids)
Double Rainbow is Well Swung’s older brother obstacle. Participants jump from the edge of a water pit onto two consecutive swing arms with the objective of hitting a hanging bell
An enclosed two-chamber structure that must be navigated through. The main chamber is filled with smoke and contains a series of impediments including inflatable walls, bungee cords, and electrical wires. The lower chamber consists of a smoke-filled crawl space, filled with a range of obstacles and blockers to prevent forward progress. The chambers may alternately open and close throughout the event.
RAVING AND MISBEHAVING
oh yeah… this obstacle is also party zone central featuring a 24 hour live DJ 💃🎵
SPICE UP YOUR LIFE 🌶️
Our Mudders had the choice to earn the right to skip 2 obstacles.
The Rules: If you pull a card between 2-10 you have to eat a jalapeño, If you pick joker you get a sweet pepper and a Jack to an Ace you have to have a habanero chili.
Kris Rugloski set new records over the weekend 🏆She is the first woman in HISTORY to hit 100 miles during an event.
Come and watch this incredible moment 👏
