The Mudstacle Awards in association with Eventbrite returned this weekend, bigger and better than ever! After such an amazing year in obstacle racing, it was an absolute pleasure to highlight the very best events and individuals on the scene.

As always, we have used a complex multi-level scoring system that allows the rightful winners to shine in each category, regardless of their marketing clout.

As well as first place "Winners" in each category, this year we have also awarded "Kudos" badges to the runners up, so keep an eye out for them.
