Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to pay for my place?

No, the cost of your place will be covered by the sponsorship you raise.

How much do I need to raise?

In addition to the £25 deposit to secure your place, we ask all participants to raise a minimum of £150 for the hospice.

How do I pay the deposit?

Your deposit can be made via our Make a Donation page. List the reason for the donation as ‘Tough Mudder 2023’ and include your name so we know what it’s for. Please also make sure to clarify whether you wish to take part in the 5 or 10K course.

Can I do it in a team?

Absolutely, the more the merrier! Teamwork is a huge part of Tough Mudder and a great event to do with friends and family. If you are taking on the challenge as a group, you will still need to register your interest and pay your deposits separately so we can make sure you all have a place.

How do I raise the sponsorship?

This part is up to you! You can download one of our sponsorship forms if you’d like to collect it in person. Alternatively, our team can help you set up a JustGiving page connected to the hospice which can be shared via text and social media.

Do you provide transport to the race?

We do not provide any transport for those taking part in the event. However, we give all our supporters the option of joining a WhatsApp group for fellow mudders, so you may be able to discuss transport options with others taking part.

How do I give my sponsorship money to the hospice?

We would recommend creating a JustGiving page using our link so that all money raised is given straight to the hospice which is more convenient for you. If you collect any cash donations for your Tough Mudding efforts, this can be brought into the hospice.

How long is the course?

There are two choices of courses for you to take on this July. The 5K course consists of 13 different obstacles and takes around 1-2 hours to complete. If you’re feeling braver, the 10K course features 20 obstacles and takes an average of 2.5-3 hours to complete.

Is there a minimum age to take part?

Unfortunately due to Tough Mudder rules, participants of the 5K event must be at least 13 years of age, and those taking on the 10K course must be at least 14 years of age.
