Tough Mudder


Our Mission

The Tough Mudder series was created to test toughness, fitness, strength, stamina and mental grit all in one place and all in one day. Sure, there are a few that will test these things - for thousands of dollars and a week of your life. But in one day and in one location? We don't think so. Other mud runs? Forget it - unless you want to run alongside your 60-year-old grandmother. Tough Mudder is a truly exceptional event for truly exceptional people. Fair-weather runners should stay at home.

TMHQ's long-term mission is to create unconventional, life-changing experiences. 

The Culture

Tough Mudder events place an emphasis on teamwork and pushing yourself, and working at TMHQ is no different. All new hires take part in an eight week Induction process designed to get new employees up to speed. The Induction process includes engaging presentations about the company, our culture, and different departments, as well as team-building activities with fellow Inductees. Because feedback is really essential to what we do, Inductees meet with their line managers weekly to talk about what's going well, things to improve upon, and goals and expectations for the coming week(s). Inductees will also make the journey to a Tough Mudder event, where they'll work the event one day and run the course the next.

Benefits & Perks

We believe that hard work deserves to be rewarded. As a Tough Mudder employee you'll not only be helping to build the most exciting endurance sports brand in the world, but you'll also enjoy the below. You won't find these benefits at other start-ups:

Tough Mudder University

One of the best things about working at Tough Mudder is the company's dedication to professional development. Everyone at TMHQ is automatically enrolled in Tough Mudder University which aims to replicate the Harvard Business School education of our founder and CEO Will Dean. Not only does Will share all he has learned but also quite literally brings HBS to Tough Mudder, as the team reads monthly HBS case studies and participates in mock HBS classes.

Tough Mudder Ventures

We're doing amazing things at Tough Mudder, both as entrepreneurs and for entrepreneurs. One of our newer initiatives,Tough Mudder Ventures, is a start-up funding program that will provide competitive seed funding, office space, mentoring, and more to select former Tough Mudder employees who launch their own ventures.
