Island Hopping

This ain’t no tropical getaway.

Previously reserved for World’s Toughest Mudders®, this obstacle requires more speed and agility than any other on the course. You’ll be hopping from one floating island to the next as fast as you can without falling into the muddy water beneath you.

Tough Mudder Tips

Jump lightly or you’ll sink hard. Think like a cat.
The best way to get across the murky water is to take two quick steps on each island. The key here is agility, not speed.The islands will sink if you land too hard or stay on them for too long. Just like life, this obstacle calls for focus and balance.


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.
