Tough Mudder Las Vegas: Sold Out

Ground-breaking new obstacles, launch of "Mudder Legion" program and most challenging courses yet bring overwhelming demand; Saturday registration closed and Sunday's event expected to sell out on site

BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tough Mudder, the world's premiere obstacle endurance challenge, announced today that this weekend's Las Vegas Saturday event has sold out, becoming the first sold-out event of the company's 2014 season. Participants will travel from all 50 states to test their strength, stamina and all-around mental grit at the picturesque and physically demanding Lake Las Vegas venue. Just thirty minutes off the world-famous Las Vegas strip, event organizers are confident that the venue will offer one of the most challenging courses of the year to Legionnaires (multi-Mudders) and first-timers alike.

"By developing innovative new obstacles like Fire In Your Hole and Pole Dancer, and outfitting world class venues with some of the most formidable courses our experts can dream up, we expect 2014 to be the most exciting year yet for Tough Mudder," said Alex Patterson, VP of Brand. "We've been working all winter long to get these innovations on course, and we are incredibly proud to see the overwhelmingly positive response from our global tribe of Mudders."

Tough Mudder organizers report seeing a surge in registrations as buzz around these new offerings increased in the past weeks, leading to the closure of Saturday's event. Limited spaces for Sunday are still available as of publication, and spectator tickets are available to watch Mudders forge through mud, ice water, and electric shocks. To sign up, visit https://toughmudder.com/events/2014-las-vegas-nv.

With more than 60 events across seven countries globally, Tough Mudder will be bigger, better and muddier in 2014, reaching more fans than ever before. Those interested in registering for future events before they sell out can check out the new ToughMudder.com to sign up.
