Tough Mudder Race Day Essentials Checklist

Heading into a race most people take the time to prepare themselves mentally and physically for the upcoming challenge, but their planning is lacking in detail. To help minimize stress and encourage success on race day here are some important items to consider.

What to Wear

• Most obstacle course races feature mud, water, and off-road conditions. You might want to choose clothing, shoes, and gear that you wouldn’t mind discarding after the race.

• Choose comfortable athletic clothing and fabrics that wick moisture and dry quickly. Consider compression shorts, tops, and/or socks.

• Race in something you have trained in. Do not try a new pair of shoes or compression shorts on the day of the race.

• Opt for trail running or off-road shoes.

• Consider athletic or weight lifting gloves to help with grip and protect your hands.

What to Bring

• Hydration pack.

• Knee, elbow, or leg protection, pads, or compression sleeves.

• Sunscreen.

• Athletic or medical tape.

• Watch and/or heart rate monitor.

Additional Consideration

• Bring a change of clothes, towel, and toiletries to be warm and dry for the post race party.

• Have some extra cash on hand for food and merchandise.

• Enjoy the race and post-race activities.

Thanks for the list! Athletic tape to tape your feet or so before the race because of the heavy terrain? Never did that before, but possibly will try it out before the race.

But I completely disagree on your clothing suggestion. "comfortable athletic"? I chose tough mudder "not because it is easy, but because it is hard" - and I'll do "the other thing". No, not play Texas. Dress unathletic.

I'll let you know one week from now if it was a good idea :)

Greetings to all fellow Mudders,

I wore midthigh length compression shorts as my first layer and wore my running shorts over that because  I feel silly otherwise (dumb). When really muddy the running shorts were a pain. Short running socks let sand UNDER my sock which was a hassle. May see if I can run in long compression socks, but I've had calf cramping with soccer socks before. Quick dry shirt definitely. Didnt need any liquid or food,plenty of stops. I may bring some sort of drinking vessel to be able to skip lines as there was open places to fill. Never felt the need for gloves myself, but if I might see if I can wear some sort of pack to bring some next time. Will wear my running watch as well because we want to see how fast we can go.
