A New (Virtual) Way to Level-Up Your Fitness Game
We know you’ve seen your fair share of virtual events in 2020. You’ve spent the year racking up miles in your neighborhood. Ready for what’s next?
We got you covered. True to Tough Mudder style, we’re mixing things up a bit.
Welcome to Tough Mudder Challenges 2021. Aspire. Earn. Achieve. Together.
Coming off a successful 2020 Challenges season, where over 20,000 participants around the world took on six different 21-day challenges– we’ve leveled up the game for 2021.
As we return to live events in countries around the world, you now have a new suite of live and virtual Challenges to keep your fitness on track in between events, supplement your training, and collect a new series of Challenge Coins along the way.
The Challenges family now includes four different types of adventures: Virtual Events, Milestones, the Marvel Series and Missions. Mix them, match them and stack them up and set new goals for achievements in 2021. Each Challenge has a unique completion Challenge Coin plus some other great swag and surprise rewards you can unlock along the way.
Similar to a traditional Tough Mudder event, Challenges: Virtual Events are single-day adventures for you to complete solo or even better: with your local crew. Ranging in distance and complexity, add Virtual Events to your calendar to hone your endurance, measure your progress or take on a new twist with some of the more extreme offerings.
First up: 1ST 5K is open for registration now and entry is FREE. Take on a 5k course of your own design between January 1st and 31st to get your new year fitness started off right. Get a group together, put in some miles, submit your results and tag #TMChallenges and #NewYearNoLimits. Want the swag? You can upgrade to get the Challenge Coin and a Tough Mudder 5k Headband for your collection.
Be on the lookout in January for the launch of EQUINOX ULTRA, a sunrise to sunset ultra-endurance race in March on the Spring Equinox. If you’ve always wanted to take on a Toughest Mudder (or you’re an old pro), this is your chance to try out a similar format.
Watch out for at least five more Virtual Events launching throughout the year, including family options and a few for adventure-seekers.
What you get:
A unique Virtual Event Challenge Coin and Finisher Headband for each Virtual Event completed. Some endurance virtual events also have race bibs.
If you’ve always wanted to achieve the New Year’s resolution you set every January– we’ve got your back.
Milestones are a set of goals for you to pursue– in STRIDES (distance on foot), RIDES (distance on a bicycle), ELEVATION (vertical gain on foot) and TEAM (group distance Challenges to tackle as a team).
Set a goal, secure your Milestone and start tracking via our FitRankings platform. You can sync your wearable device and record all active exercise toward your goal. Once you crush your first one, move up to the next level.
Team Milestones will each have their own FitRankings login, but will track their progress on one dashboard as they accrue miles on the map.
What you get:
Aunique Milestones Challenge Coin for each challenge completed.
If you loved the October Marvel Series Challenge, keep an eye on your inbox in late January for the launch of the first of six 2021 Marvel Series Challenges.
Similar to the 2020 Challenge series, the 2021 Challenges: Marvel Series will feature a selection of mandatory and optional physical exercises, mental challenges and creative tests to push you outside your comfort zone.
We’ll drop six Marvel Challenges throughout the year, and you can complete them at any time once they launch. Unlike the 2020 series, there are no hard end dates on the individual challenges, so you can start and finish them on your own schedule.
What you get:
A unique Marvel Series Challenge Coin for each challenge completed.
Top secret Challenges, that you’ll only be able to complete at a live Tough Mudder event. That’s all we’re saying for now.
All Challenge participants can join the Challenges Facebook community from their region for daily inspiration, entertainment and support from Tough Mudder HQ and the Challenges community. The perfect way to keep your fitness up year-round and supplement your Tough Mudder goals– check out your first Challenge today.
