Mudder Volunteer Programme

Join Probably the Best Team on the Planet

Are you awesome at helping others conquer their challenges? Then we want you on our volunteer team. 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 NEW 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.

Apply To Volunteer

The experience as a whole is absolutely incredible.

Receive either:
  • a discount code to purchase a ticket for a future** event OR
  • a reimbursement for a ticket purchased prior to volunteering.

The latter is a helpful perk for anyone wanting to participate on Saturday and volunteer on the Sunday of a two day event.

How it works:

**Future= Any event in the year you volunteer or the following year. Valid for a Tough Mudder Classic or Tough Mudder 5k event.

On completion of your volunteer shift you receive a Volunteer Discount Code to enable you to purchase your ticket to run.

Your discount code is valid for two event seasons, can only be used once, and is collected at Volunteer HQ when you check out.


If you run before your volunteer shift and have purchased your ticket prior to arriving on site, we will reimburse the cost of your ticket, minus the volunteer ticket price. Complete a reimbursement form and hand it in at Volunteer HQ when you check out.
