Mudder Volunteer Program

Join Probably the Best Team on the Planet

Are you awesome at helping others conquer their challenges? Then we want you on our team as a Tough Mudder Volunteer. Our volunteers are called Mudder MVPs (Most Valuable Players) because they are the driving force behind our team and creating amazing life-changing experiences.

We have something for everyone who wants to volunteer, from setting up the event site, being the first to greet thousands of Mudders, cheering them on as they are challenged through a series of obstacles, or crowning Mudders with those hard-earned headbands.

This is one of the best ways to find out more about Tough Mudder events, support your friends or family and earn an amazing discount to take to the course yourself and begin your journey.

Whatever you do as a Mudder MVP, you’ll be at the heart of it all, creating life-changing experiences for everyone – including yourself. are only valid for the same event location.

This was my second year volunteering at Tough Mudder Ireland. There really is nothing else like it. The joy you get out of helping the Mudders through the course is amazing. They are always so happy and excited to see the volunteers. The TMHQ staff were so informative and treated us like family the whole time
