Walk the Plank

Take the muddy plunge.

Test your fear of heights with this 12-foot high jump into a deep muddy water pit. Don’t think too much before you leap – you’ll hold up others behind you, and the volunteers at the top of the platform don’t like to babysit Mudders. Unless you want a loud earful from them, you’d better just jump when they tell you to jump. You’ve got this – it only lasts a few stomach-dropping seconds. And don’t forget about the 40-foot swim on the other end, so skip this one if you can't swim.

Tough Mudder Tips

Watch your form. Muddy belly flops suck.
There’s no need to get fancy here. Make sure to watch out for other Mudders below, wait for instruction to jump, and take a big leap.


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.
