Cage Crawl

Get in the cage.

This water-based obstacle will test your mental and physical strength as you swim under 20 meters of cage with only inches of breathing room above your head. Floating on your back may seem like a calm break, but the sense of being trapped will quickly begin to play with your mind.

Obstacle History

Cage Crawl was designed to test participants’ mental discipline for small spaces. We wanted to create the experience of infiltrating a military installation via a sewer drain with only a small space of air to breathe.

Tough Mudder Tips

Swim backwards.
The best way to plow through this obstacle is to swim backwards on your back, grabbing the chain link and pulling yourself along, eyes to the sky. Just swim toward the encouraging shouts of your teammates. When you get out, turn around and help the Mudder behind you.


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.
