A New Year. For most it’s a chance for fresh starts, resolutions and healthy diets but for Mudders far and wide it holds a special kind of promise.
5 Things You Need to Know About Obstacle Unveil 2018
If there is one thing that Tough Mudder is known for (after the crazy mud and orange headbands) it’s obstacle innovation, and the announcement of brand new obstacles stokes a fire under Mudder Nation like nothing else.
So as you wait patiently for the all-important details here are the five most important things you need to know about what is to come in January 2018.
1. 11th January 2018 is The Date
Clear your diary, take the day off work and prepare your eyes for a feast of information and newness on this very special day. Have toughmudderae.wpengine.com open and every social media platform possible near your face because you’re going to want to see this and then you’re going to want to share it.
Pro tip: Write this date down now. You wouldn’t want to forget.
2. Brand New Obstacles
For months TMHQ has been abuzz with new ideas, there have drawings and renderings, designs and redesigns and a whole bunch of testing and finally…FINALLY on 11th January 2018 we can reveal to the world our brand new obstacles.
That means if you’ve booked your ticket for 2018 you can expect to take on obstacles that have never been seen on course in the UK before. Think we might have lost our touch? There’s a reason we’re considered the biggest and bestest in the world.
3. The Vault will be Emptied
It’s all been pretty cloak and dagger so far, some fuzzy videos, a crazy hacker and a handful of leaked secret files.
Let us clear things up a little. The Vault, which is filled to the brim with classic Tough Mudder obstacle designs has been opened and come January we will be asking you to vote for your favourites.
And the winners? Well they might just be making an appearance on course in 2018.
4. More Legionnaire Exclusives
If you bleed orange you deserve unique challenges that are on course just for you. They will require skill, experience and fearlessness which is exectly why we know the Legionnaires can handle it.
5. Something BIG is Coming
The fun doesn’t stop in January either. We’re cooking up a monumental, global announcement that will knock you off your feet, and give you something to look forward to once the excitement of obstacle unveil has passed.
