It’s been three years since the craziest among us, duct taped their shoes on, and took to the mud at Hampton Downs for Tough Mudder. Well grit your teeth for blisters folks, because this November, it’s back!
Promising 40 tonnes of ice, and 500,000 litres of mud, Tough Mudder is promoted as one of the toughest events on the planet.
The 18 kilometre course is jam packed with more than 20 challenging obstacles and is designed to drag people out of their comfort zones. Getting to the finish line is the aim of the game and based on previous reviews, it looks like it will take a huge dose of grit and determination to make it. A “half” option with a nine kilometre course of pain, is also available.
Pairing up with Tough Mudder NZ this year, is charity partner, the iSPORT FOUNDATION. Richie McCaw, Ali Williams and Dan Carter created the Foundation in 2009. The Foundation gives grants and provides a crowdfunding platform for young people and teams who need help. Whether it’s equipment, training fees or other expenses, the Foundation is focused on helping make dreams a reality and getting more kids participating in sport.
The Tough Mudder NZ event will be held on the weekend of 4-5 November at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park. Get your mud on and join more than two million other global pain seekers who’ve taken on the Tough Mudder challenge. If you dare!

And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
