Twinkle Toes

Patience, young grasshopper.

This obstacle isn't as easy as it sounds. Call upon your inner Karate Kid to help you keep your balance as you carefully make your way across a narrow, wobbling, wooden beam. Stumble, and you’ll fall into a mud bath. True Mudders℠ use not only strength, but balance and agility to complete the course. Here’s your chance to prove to yourself that you have all three.

Obstacle History

Twinkle Toes first debuted on a lake at our third event ever, TM Tri-State 2010. It was at water level, and we decided that wasn't hard enough and that part of the anxiety of the obstacle should be that if you failed, you had to fall a distance down into the water. Once, at SoCal 2012, we upped the ante and ran a live wire down the edges of the wooden balance beam to prevent people from grabbing it with their hands and attempting to scoot across.

Suggested Training

Build up your leg balance by doing squats on a Bosu ball.

Tough Mudder Tips

Just remember to breathe.
Keep your eyes looking straight ahead, not down at your feet; don’t be distracted by what’s going on around you. Don’t hold your breath. Instead, focus on your breathing while you carefully walk across the beam.


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.
