2016 Event Overview

Same Awesome Venue, New Course

Not your typical Tough Mudder venue, the Tall Pines ATV Park feels more like home to Mudder Nation. Owned by the Kent family, it’s arguably one of the messiest natural courses in North America. Featuring 7 ponds, dense woodlands, and a slew of mud bogs and sloppy swamps, you’re going to need to double knot those laces and dig deep to make it to the finish line.

10 -12 miles, 20+ Obstacles

Tough Mudder Western NY Presented by Merrell is no nature walk, get ready to run through a combo of classic Tough Mudder obstacles and brand-spankin new creations for 2016.
