Northampton Saints to host Tough Mudder event at Franklin’s Gardens

Rugby might be the ultimate team sport, but Tough Mudder is not far behind.

And this summer Northampton Saints supporters, fitness fanatics and adrenaline junkies alike will have the chance to test themselves on the Franklin’s Gardens turf, as the hugely popular endurance event series rolls into town.

Tough Mudder is an untimed teamwork challenge, and for the first time ever the event will be held inside a sports stadium on Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June, 2019.

Part of the Tough Mudder 5k Urban series, Northampton's event will feature 13 world-class, teamwork-inspired obstacles across a five-kilometre course, and costs just £39 per person to enter.

Aimed at athletes of all abilities, from complete beginners to seasoned runners, Tough Mudder is not about winners and losers – just people banding together to overcome obstacles in pursuit of personal accomplishment.

You're never alone at a Tough Mudder event; everyone is there to help you complete the course, which is filled with obstacles engineered to test your teamwork and help you overcome your fears.

Participants will run through Franklin’s Gardens, hurtle around the training pitches, scramble up and down the grandstands, and then party on the pitch – with all finishers set to celebrate their achievements in the Mudder Village after conquering the course.

Tough Mudder 5K Urban at Franklin's Gardens will run on Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June, 2019. To book your place now for just £39 per person, please CLICK HERE.
