Tough Mudder - Chicago
As high flying as the airport it’s built upon, Tough Mudder Chicago is a flat and fast course. Easy right? Wrong. This course doesn't have a lot elevation but it makes up for in multiple gauntlets of crazy obstacles. Diverse and dirty, this Windy City sidewinder of a course will take you through sprawling fields, vegetated woodlands and riverside trails, making it one of the most unique Tough Mudder courses out there.
Choose from the Tough Mudder 5K with 13 obstacles or tackle 10 Miles and 25 Obstacles with the Tough Mudder Classic, which is an epic return to badass roots packed with more obstacles than ever before. You’ll test your limits physically and mentally and cross the finish line stronger than you started, with your fellow Mudders by your side every step of the way.
Looking for something for your kids? The Mini Mudder Mini Mudder is an obstacle course mud run comprised of 1/4 mile laps designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids and gives children a chance to test their fitness and team-building skills just like a real Tough Mudder.
