Many people enjoy a challenge, and pushing themselves to their limits all in aid of a good cause can make for a great day out. Sponsoring people to take part in charity events, especially those that require dedication and training can be a fantastic way of raising money towards a worthy cause. However, some events may require a little more focus. Tough Mudder is an outdoor event with a twist, it’s extremely difficult and very muddy. This challenge will push even the toughest of athletes to their physical and mental limits, but all in aid of some fantastic charities.

Although there are many outdoor events such as marathons, bike rides and hikes, none are quite as extreme as Tough Mudder. Outdoor specialists have everything participants need to prepare for this event, if they dare to take part. From training physically and mentally to finding the most appropriate kit to wear, there is certainly a lot to plan for. At there is an extensive range of walking and hiking boots along with outdoor clothing such as base layers and waterproofs that will come in very handy during this challenge.

For those wondering what to expect, there will be water, mud, sweat and tears. The arena course will see participants battle their way through gushing water and mud baths, trying their best to stay upright. The backwoods course exposes them to the elements along with obstacles and different terrains taking nature running to the extreme. The open range course goes through country fields, deserts and off the radar trails whilst partakers lumber heavy tree trunks up and over hills. Off road is an adrenaline filled route and will take players through a variety of extreme terrains including ice and of course, mud. For those who have made it this far, the mountain course as the name may suggest involves climbing over obstacles and helping team mates up steep inclines. The muscle course puts participants on the home run and those with enough strength and power to tackle the muddy roads, hair pin turns and never ending tracks will eventually meet the finish line.

This event clearly requires immense training and only the fittest will survive. It is recommended that those interested in applying seek medical and fitness advise prior to the event to ensure they are physically able to complete this incredible challenge. The last Tough Mudder event took place last weekend, however there is another one planned early August on the 2nd and 3rd in Yorkshire for those brave enough to tackle the mud. To help prepare for this event head over to and take a look at the fantastic range of outdoor clothing and footwear to aid performance during events such as Tough Mudder.
