For the past decade Tough Mudder has been getting whole communities off the couch and into the mud, getting them active and providing them with the tools needed to lead healthier lifestyles. Over four million individuals, from across the world, have embraced Tough Mudder’s ways, but they’re not done yet.
The Tough Mudder communities play a huge role in this push, and not just on race day. They come together to train, fundraise, share, motivate, and advise one another. And in this past year especially, what has become increasingly evident is the camaraderie, support and inclusivity their like minded Mudders give one another, because together they are Unbreakable.
Transforming lives is Tough Mudder’s DNA. It is at the heart of everything they do and every obstacle they construct. In acknowledging that the legacies they leave are as important as the next ones they create we have in recent years launched a host of community initiatives and challenges aimed at inspiring the very communities they visit whilst increasing their accessibility, and providing opportunities to those otherwise marginalised.
The Tough Mudder UK team have worked with many national and local partners to help drive community engagement and fundraising. We proudly estimate that we have helped raise over 20 million pounds for U.K. charities in the last 10 years. This has continued even through lockdown, keeping our community engaged with virtual events and our Marvel Challenges, with many continuing to fundraise throughout the digital events.
It doesn’t just stop there though. Tough Mudder has also given back and most recently became the principal partner of local Rugby club – East Grinstead RFC with Matt Brooke, UK & Ireland Managing Director commenting:
“During what is set to be an exciting year for East Grinstead Rugby Club on and off the pitch, we are delighted to be supporting it’s male and female teams deliver against their ambitions on the pitch and all obstacles that lie ahead.
At Tough Mudder we believe that by overcoming obstacles together and challenging yourself then anything is possible. Given this and the fact our events share so many similarities with community rugby – teamwork, camaraderie, inclusivity, resiliency, fun and mud to name but a few, it was a natural fit for us to support this great community.
What’s more, with Tough Mudder London South just a stone’s throw from East Grinstead at Holmbush Estate, we can’t wait to see more of the Sussex Rugby Community rise to the challenge and join us on our start lines in the near future.”
This will see Tough Mudder working very closely with Rugby communities across the South East to promote active, healthy lifestyles, inclusivity and charitable giving.
With Tough Mudder Challenges providing low-cost, virtual on demand fitness Tough Mudder have found the perfect way to keep people motivated during a trying year. Now we cannot wait for event season to come back, so that we can continue to focus our post pandemic attention on getting the country active and promoting meaningful grassroots participation nationally.
With lockdown restrictions easing and live events firmly on the horizon, Tough Mudder cannot wait to get thousands back in to the mud for a summer of pushing boundaries and overcoming obstacles. Book you place now.
