Tough Mudder London South 2023

What a fitting way to end to 2023 Tough Mudder UK Season.

Tough Mudder London South has always been my favourite venue. But they ave just changed it up enough this year to keep it interesting. The return of Walk the Plank was the coup de grace – who knew that walking off a ledge would be so much fun!

Tough Mudder London South final thoughts

It’s no secret that Tough Mudder London South is my favourite venue. Great woodland running, undulating without being too hilly. 

As it’s London (well Crawley) it has one of the highest attendances which makes for a fantastic atmosphere. The course is also spectator friendly with around 9 obstacles being within very easy reach of the event village.

Pitfall being the second to last obstacle also makes from a great specatcle, with an MC making it even more fun!

Loved the return of Walk the Plank – its great to see so many mudders take on their fear of heights – Im looking at you Jen!

Looking forward to 2024 (sorry for wishing it coming sooner) with France, Germany and the USA on the list
