Berlin Walls

The most hellish hurdles you’ll ever overcome.

Teamwork is key for this obstacle. Climb a set of 3 meter wooden walls that our Course Designers have strategically placed for when you’re at your weakest points during the event. Some Mudders℠ will be strong enough to make it over Berlin Walls alone, but most will need a boost from a fellow Mudder, whether it’s a teammate or someone else. There’s never been a better time to make friends with a stranger.

Obstacle Stat: 80% of participants require teamwork to get over Berlin Walls.

Push-Ups: Do 3 rounds of 10 reps.

Tough Mudder Tips

Give ‘em a boost.
Some Mudders with superhuman upper body strength and agility will be able to get up and over themselves. Those with a good vertical leap may be able to reach the top by planting a foot on the protruding wooden 2x6 near the bottom of the wall. Others will have to work together. To boost your teammates over the walls, interlace your fingers and let them step into your hands while they pull themselves over the obstacle. This goes best with two Mudders working together to help another one over the wall. Just make sure someone else returns the favor.


Volunteering at a Tough Mudder event isn't just about giving back — it's about pushing Mudders forward. With helping hands, words of encouragement and an attitude as positive as the day's atmosphere, volunteers ensure that no Mudder gets left behind.
