2017 was pretty epic, but 2018 is going to be even more insane. We have some new and exciting changes coming this year, so we want to make sure you have all the info you need to be ready to tackle your next Tough Mudder event.
1. More Photos of You on Event Day
Tough Mudder is introducing new technology to provide you with your course images. That’s right Mudders, you are going to have more photos that are more shareable than ever before.
This new process uses state-of-art facial-recognition software that will match you and your photos throughout the course. You will receive barcode sticker at check-in that must be placed high on the centre of your chest, this sticker will then be read as you go around course.
*We are trialling this new technology for the first time at our East London 5K event & London West events. As this will be a test. please bear with the process if it is a little slower and less accurate initially.
How do I get my photos?
You will be able to download your photos directly from our photo gallery by using the link emailed to you 2-3 days post-event. All photo galleries will be available at https://toughmudderuk.wpengine.com/photos
2. Brand New Obstacles
We have all new challenges for you to take on when you hit the course in 2018. Happy Ending is the brand new finisher obstacle and is the biggest all-inclusive finisher obstacles we’ve ever constructed. It will allow all Mudders and Legionnaires to finish the final obstacle and cross the finish line together.
Kong Infinity was designed by 2 of our very own UK Legionnaires and will be out on course to test the Legionnaire community in all new ways. Combining strength, agility and technique Kong Infinity is going to challenge even the most experienced Legionnaires. Find out all you need to know about these new obstacles on our Obstacles Page.
3. The Vault – Your Favourite Obstacles Reborn
The Vault is essentially Tough Mudder’s obstacle archives. It contains every weird and wonderful creation that has ever graced any course anywhere in the world over the last seven years.
In 2018 we’re bringing back some of these beloved (and often feared) obstacles and we gave you, Mudder Nation, the chance to choose your favourites – the ones you want to see out on course this year
