About Ruff Mudder

This 5.5km cross country obstacle adventure has you and your dog traverse over 80 amazing obstacles - DESIGNED FOR ALL FITNESS LEVELS. This event is about taking your time and making great memories with your dog. What have you done for your dog lately?

Through forests, fields, streams and MUD our course promises a one-of-a-kind day that you and your dog will never forget.  The Ruff Mudder has been designed to challenge the most avid and energetic teams while allowing all dogs and people of most fitness levels to have a remarkable day. Chihuahuas, Mastiffs, 3 legged dogs - have all loved the course.

There isn't anything in the world like Ruff Mudder.  Designed to give your dog the best day possible this muddy obstacle course is pawsitively amazing.  Ruff Mudder was built over four years by a veterinarian and a paramedic on their family farm.  Both outdoor adventurers they wanted to provide a fun filled, dog friendly event.

Our "less screen and more green" motto puts you and your dog out in nature. This is an "anti race" as we encourage you to stop along route, enjoy the sky, chase a butterfly and breathe in the beauty- before you slip down into the next mud pit.

We would be tickled pink at your pawesomeness if you would help to spread the word about Ruff Mudder. Please use #RuffMudder with your posts to share the event!
