About this event

A truly crazy event!12 miles long and estimated 3 hours length. Not for the faint hearted as the obstacles include running through cow dung, nettles and fire. The race is across two days the saturday and sunday. If you enter both you will get a 50% discount.

The course

The course is approximately 12 miles long with around 26 obstacles along the way (that’s 3 a mile!) – this event really does separate the men from the boys! Serious training is needed for this, with a minimum 5 miles a week combined with some weight and circuit training. Try our 10 by 10 military army work out to get you match fit!

3 reviews for “Tough Mudder – Cheshire/North

  1. Mud








    Tough Mudder is expensive but options such as volunteering and post race feedback discounts make it far more manageable. Great atmosphere making it the perfect race for teams or solos, great camaraderie means there is always a helping hand available. The challenge is tough but attainable for most. This year the added bonus of overnight rain made the mud miles and swamps really challenging. Old favourites such as Arctic Enema and Everest have had a facelift to make them more difficult than last year. North West have good facilities, parking is nearby and there is lots to do for pre/post race and spectators in the village. Highly recommended for everyone.

  2. Mud








    Although expensive Tough Mudder offers alot for your money. 20km of running, excellent obstacles and lots of fun. A real team ethos is established and the headband and the status is great. Fire in Your Hole is a rapid and solid slide. Everest is a challenging and slippy 1/4 pipe. And Electroshock Therapy can knock people to the ground. Loads of marshals, a full days entertainment awaits you. The tenting village is like a music festival. Best to sign up early when its at its cheapest for full value.
