2020 World’s Toughest Mudder Canceled

 

Tough Mudder Cancelled 2020

The 2020 World’s Toughest Mudder, set to take place near Dallas, Texas was cancelled today. Although it appeared inevitable with all of the rising Covid-19 cases in that area, many still held out hope for what would have been the 10th anniversary.  However, today it officially happened. Tough Mudder cancelled all 2020 physical events including World’s Toughest Mudder.

CEO Tough Mudder said

It has become clear based on our conversations with local officials that the ongoing COVID trends and corresponding restrictions don’t support conducting the remaining 2020 Tough Mudder US events as originally scheduled. We’re setting our sights on a strong 2021, with a full North America and UK calendar rolling out over the next few weeks, and keeping our community active with Tough Mudder Challenges, Virtual Toughest and Virtual World’s Toughest Mudder in the meantime.

You can check out the recently launched Tough Mudder Challenges here.

You can sign up for some 2021 events, including Philly Toughest Mudder on Tough Mudder’s website. There is not a link nor location confirmed yet for 2021 World’s Toughest Mudder.

Spartan World Championship 2020 New Location?

Spartan Race World Championship Change

Spartan Race may no longer be holding the 2020 Spartan World Championship in Abu Dhabi. Covid-19 travel issues may force Spartan to hold the event elsewhere this December. Back in January, Spartan announced their World Championship would be taking place outside the United States for the first time. As of a few hours ago, customers can no longer register for the race on Spartan’s website. This afternoon, Spartan CEO, Joe Desena told us

We are monitoring travel restrictions and access in and out of the middles east, if it looks like its gonna be hard for the world to get to Abu Dhabi, we will find a location that will be easier for the most athletes and countries globally to get into and out of.

In other Spartan Championship news, the Ultra World Championship to be held in Vermont has been moved to a yet undetermined location. The TriFecta World Championship in Greece is going ahead as scheduled Nov 5- 8.

Stay tuned as we continue to get more details on this story.
