Tough Mudder – Chicago routes

10 miles, 20 obstacles:

The event that started it all. Tough Mudder Chicago is 10 miles jam-packed full of 20 epic obstacles specifically designed by our crew of expert engineers to require intense teamwork, get you out of your comfort zone, and test your limits. But make no mistake – this is not a race. There’s no clock, no official times, no podium – just you and your crew forging a bond in the mud that will last a lifetime. Tough Mudder shows you what it means to conquer any task, find your mental edge, and truly be Tougher Together.

5 miles, 13 obstacles:

Say goodbye to the same old, chill-on-the-couch, regular-local-bar weekend and hello to the extraordinary, the epic, the best weekend of your year. Tough Mudder Half Chicago is 5 miles of mud, and 13 best-in-class obstacles designed by our industry leading engineers to be an absolute certified blast. Tough Mudder Half is not a race – just one epic party that will test your toughness and your teamwork, without electricity or ice. Tough Mudder Half will have your heart racing all the way to the finish line where you and your crew can grab a frosty cold finisher beer on us. You earned it.

WHAT TO WEAR

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 cold, gloves are recommended. If it’s hot, sunscreen is a necessity. No matter what the weather is, make sure to come hydrated and take advantage of water stations on course.

FAQs

Are teams required to finish together? Team members are not required to finish the course together. While we place an emphasis on teamwork and camaraderie, Tough Mudder leaves this decision at each team member's sole discretion.

Will start times be enforced? Yes! Your start time will be sent approximately 11 days before event day. No need to bring proof – your start time will be linked to your ticket, so make sure to bring a printed or digital copy of your ticket and your photo ID.

What does my start time mean? What time should I get to the event? Your start time is the estimated time you will start the course. For example, a participant assigned 8:00am will start in the 8:00am or 8:15am wave.

Can I skip obstacles? Yes. Tough Mudder is not a race, nor is it about getting a better time than other competitors, so it's fine by us if you want to skip an obstacle. The way we see it, you are there to have fun and challenge yourself. If you think a particular obstacle really isn't going to do this for you, just go around it - without a penalty or shame. Anyone who is at risk of our electric-related obstacles (due to medical concerns) or cannot swim (and would have a difficult time in water) is strongly advised to skip these obstacles, as safety is held at a premium at Tough Mudder. Please speak with a doctor before coming to Tough Mudder, as they can evaluate your specific circumstances.
