    What are Tough Mudder Challenges? with Tough Mudder CEO Kyle McLaughlin

    Tough Mudder is rolling out the new Tough Mudder Challenges for 2020. What is Tough Mudder Challenges? We talked with Kyle McLaughlin, the CEO of Tough Mudder to find out.
    Each month you will be given a new set of Tough Mudder Challenges. You will have four main challenges for each month, with three weeks to complete them. There will be one challenge in each of these four categories:
    Distance Elevation Workout Obstacle In addition, each of the three weeks will have "Bonus" Challenges. There will be four challenges each week and you get to pick the two you would like to do.
    Four main challenges plus a total of six bonus challenges for a total of 10 challenges to complete each three-week session.
    When you successfully complete your challenges for the month you will earn new Tough Mudder Swag, including the new 10th Anniversary Headband, the 2020 Tough Mudder finisher shirt, and a monthly Tough Mudder Challenge coin. The Challenge coin is entirely new to Tough Mudder and you will be able to earn a new one each month.
    The cost for Tough Mudder Challenges is $40/month. If you pay for all six remaining months of 2020, the price is $155 and includes a display case for your six Challenge coins. There is also a $15/month "digital-only" option if you aren't interested in the coins and other award swag.

    Kyle McLaughlin: Tough Mudder is BACK.

    Kyle McLaughlin: Tough Mudder is BACK.

    Kyle McLaughlin went from being the President of Tough Mudder to just another guy like you and me to President of Tough Mudder in about six months.
    Kyle has worked closely with Joe De Sena and Spartan to lead Tough Mudder through bankruptcy and the acquisition of Tough Mudder by Spartan. Without Spartan, and without Kyle McLaughlin, it is our opinion that Tough Mudder as we know it would no longer exist.
    We are happy to welcome back to the show Kyle McLaughlin.
