Tough Mudder UK has announced new dates in its 2021 season to enable record numbers to get back out into the mud this year.

With levels of infection predicted to reduce in line with the vaccine roll-out, the 2021 season will now kick-off in mid-summer at Tough
Mudder Scotland 3 & 4 July, before rolling south for London West 17 & 18 July.

Tough Mudder has been working diligently with Local Authorities and expert advisors from WHO to ensure as many people as possible can get back out safely on course in 2021.

“Alongside our expert-backed COVID event plans, these calendar changes are the most meaningful way we’re able to ensure people can get back on course this season. These changes give people more clarity and more opportunity to get a date in the diary, commit to a new challenge, and really, have something to look forward to after what have been very difficult months in the UK,” said Matt Brooke, Managing Director.

“We’ve also been liaising with our peers in the mass participation sporting industry around the world, who right now are successfully hosting COVID safe events in locations across the US, the Middle East and APAC.” Brooke adds, “Through changes to our event scheduling, the roll-out of our new training programmes and virtual fitness challenges that can be done at home, we’re doing everything we can to bring some normality back to our community’s lives.”
