In 2018 Tough Mudder is bringing its brand new city-based event to Clapham Common in South London on both Friday night and Saturday. Waiting for you will be 5 kilometres worth of awesome obstacles along with a bunch of street food, craft beer and party vibes. Clapham Common has never seen anything like this before.

Want to start the weekend early? Tough Mudder will be staying up late on Friday evening, giving you and your mates the chance to tackle a mix of classic and brand new obstacles at night. And when you’re done? Hop on the tube, or take a bus home. No mud, no mess - no stress.

Tough Mudder 5k – South London (Clapham) routes

The Tough Mudder 5K course will circle around the Mudder Village so that all your friends and family can see you tackle all the best obstacles. The obstacles will be evenly spaced around the course so you won’t have to run continuously for very long.

Event Details

Tough Mudder 5k is not a race, it is a challenge. We created this event so that people can try out awesome obstacles and enjoy the camaraderie and teamwork that is integral to Tough Mudder – not worry about their time.

And if you want to skip an obstacle? No problem, we want you to feel comfortable. There’s no punishment for missing an obstacle, and you’ll still get your headband and t-shirt.

All participants get entry to Tough Mudder 5K, access to run the course, professional photos, performance finisher t-shirt, and of course the all important Tough Mudder 5K headband. Oh, and don’t forget a refreshing finisher pint.

Your headband, t-shirt, and finisher drink must be claimed at the event, on the day. Tough Mudder cannot mail out items.

Please arrive 45 minutes before your assigned start time to ensure you can park, check in, drop your bag, and get to the Warm Up Zone 20 minutes before your start time. START TIMES WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.

Cheer on your fellow Mudders, For FREE. There is no need to buy a ticket, sign up or pre-register. Just tell your friends and family to turn up on the day ready to cheer.

Volunteer and join ‘probably the best team on the planet’. You’ll be at the heart of the action, plus you’ll get awesome perks:

  • Get a discount to a future Tough Mudder, Tough Mudder Half, or Tough Mudder 5k and run for up to 90% off
  • Free Tough Mudder MVP T-shirt and gear
  • The feel good factor as you support mudders and change lives


At all events, we suggest wearing normal running shoes – spikes and cleats are strictly prohibited, but MERRELL shoes are highly encouraged. Dress in comfortable clothing (or a costume that will make you more stylish on course) and bring dry clothing to change into once you’re done.
If it’s hot, suncream is a necessity. No matter what the weather is, make sure to come hydrated and take advantage of water stations on course.

Bag drop
If you don’t plan on traveling home muddy, you’ll probably want to bring a change of clothes. Stop by the bag drop tent to store your belongings while you’re on course. £3 cash or contactless, proceeds go to our charity partner Help for Heroes.

Tough Mudder allows those who are 14 or older on the day of the event to run at a TM5K event in the UK. Minors (under 18) must purchase their ticket along with a chaperone ticket and cannot purchase their ticket alone.
IMPORTANT: Minors age 14 to 17 can participate as long as they are running with a participating chaperone who is over the age of 18. Minors must check in with their chaperones on event day.
