An Amazing, Fun 5km Challenge for Everyone

Well-known around the world, Tough Mudder, Inc. and its licensees will host more than 130 events across nearly a dozen countries, including the United States, The United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Dubai, Canada, China and Indonesia, welcoming participants worldwide into a global community that lives courage, personal accomplishment, teamwork and fun.

More than 2.5 million people have participated this challenge. Along the 5 km route, 10 classic obstacle challenges will be set up, including the highly popular “Everest 2.0”, the “Pyramid” which tests both power and teamwork, and the “Kiss of Mud 2.0” where you literally crawl through mud beneath wires. Whether doing this challenge for the first time or a veteran, you will have fun at the Tough Mudder 5K.


“We are looking forward to bringing the world’s greatest obstacle course to China for the first time,” said Barbara Zhang, Vice President, IMG. “Drawing on decades of experience staging world-class competitions for professional athletes, casual outdoor and fitness enthusiasts, we are devoted to creating a memorable experience for all participants of the Tough Mudder 5K. The shorter distance format enables us to bring our events closer to the millions around the world who are based within large metropolitan cities without the need to travel far. We highly appreciate the supports from our co-organizers, Shanghai Sports Federation, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone Group CO., Ltd and The People’s Government of Gaohang Town, Pudong New Area, Shanghai. The event won’t be possible without your big supports.”


A Collaborative Challenge with Friends

Tough Mudder has attracted a devout group of fans for the way in which it brings together so many participants unified by the spirit of collaboration and friendship. Instead of focusing on personal rankings and competition, Tough Mudder encourages participants to challenge themselves through teamwork to complete the obstacles in a challenging yet safe environment. Regardless of where you are from or what your fitness background is, as long as you are over 16 years old, you are eligible for Tough Mudder.


 “We’re delighted to be launching our new Tough Mudder 5K in Shanghai. We encourage participants to join Tough Mudder as part of a team, and complete the challenges by working together and supporting each other. We hope that all our China participants will enjoy overcoming these obstacles and collaborating with their team-mates,” said Will Dean, Tough Mudder CEO and Co-Founder, “The Tough Mudder 5K in Shanghai demonstrates the company’s commitment towards innovation and dedication to providing an array of unique event offerings for current and potential members of the fast-growing active lifestyle and endurance sports communities.”
