At Eventbrite, we’ve made it easier for organizers to plan lots of different types of events; from classes to NYE parties to music festivals. Today we’re excited to announce a tough and muddy addition to our growing roster. What’s that, you say? That’s right, we’re teaming up with Tough Mudder to bring the most mentally and physically challenging, mud-infused, military style obstacle courses to the masses.
Designed by British Special Forces, Tough Mudder courses test participants’ strength, metal grit, stamina and camaraderie with military-style obstacles such as “Funky Monkey,” greased-up incline and decline monkey bars; “Fire Walker,” a run through 4-foot-high flames; and “Electroshock Therapy,” a gauntlet of 10,000-volt-charged dangling wires that participants must barrel through to get to the finish line.
Currently, Tough Mudder hosts events in the US, Canada, the UK, Germany and Australia, but plans on more global expansion in 2014 (watch out, France!). Eventbrite is thrilled to help Tough Mudder bring this experience to more than 1,000,000 participants worldwide.
“The Tough Mudder leadership team has built a massive business in a few short years, and shares a similar passion with Eventbrite for inspiring people to connect through live experiences,” said Kevin Hartz, CEO of Eventbrite. “We’re thrilled that the work we have done around registration and scalability, combined with our strong feature set and global footprint makes Eventbrite the platform of choice for this incredible experience.”
