World’s Toughest Mudder Moving to Australia?

Tough Mudder recently posted a video to its Facebook page implying that 2017 will be the last year for World’s Toughest Mudder in Lake Las Vegas. The post is embedded below.

Around the same time Tough Mudder Australia posted some teasers to its Facebook page, including a video showing an overnight Tough Mudder event and stating that something big is coming to Australia.

Is Tough Mudder dropping coordinated hints across regional social media channels? Will World’s Toughest Mudder move to Australia for 2018?

World’s Toughest Mudder is the “most extreme, insane, imposing, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping 24-hour obstacle course challenge on the planet.” World’s Toughest Mudder 2017 takes place November 11 & 12 in Las Vegas, USA.

Or are the social media posts unrelated? Perhaps an 8-hour Toughest Mudder will be held in Australia in 2018? With Australians given the chance to quest for the Holy Grail in the Tough Mudder Competitive Series?

24 Hour Enduro Championship in Australia

If World’s Toughest Mudder makes the move downunder for 2018 the event will join the OCR 24 Hour Enduro Championship, recently announced for the same year. Adventurey, the producers of the OCR World Championships, announced a 24 Hour Enduro Championship to be held in Australia in 2018.

Tough Mudder in New Zealand

In New Zealand, Tough Mudder returned to our country in 2017, after an inaugural event in 2014. Tough Mudder New Zealand recently announced a 2018 date of November 3 & 4 and has opened pre-sale registrations.

Update: Toughest Mudder Coming to Australia

Toughest Australia

Tough Mudder Australia has confirmed Toughest Mudder will be coming to Australia in 2018.

Toughest Mudder is an 8-hour obstacle course that takes teamwork, stamina and mental grit to the extreme—all between the hours of midnight and 8AM. With multiple regions, geographies and hardcore contenders from across the globe – Toughest Mudder is the ultimate challenge for Mudders insane enough to push themselves beyond anything they’ve ever experienced.

It was also pointed out to us that the Toughest Mudder logo was actually hidden within Tough Mudder Australia’s teaser video mentioned in this post. At one point the Toughest logo flashed very briefly across the screen.
