DESIGNED TO CHALLENGE
Our world-famous obstacles are all designed to challenge you in different ways: confined spaces (hello, Cage Crawl), barbed wire (talking about you, Kiss Of Mud), sheer strength (Devil’s Beard, what’s up), and the freezing cold (Arctic Enema, we see you) – just to name a few.
But we don’t stop there…
In 2023, we’ve modified a few fan-favorites to be tougher than ever before. Here’s a peak at *some* of the obstacle modifications you can expect to face on courses this season. And just remember, these are only the ones we’re warning you about…. you never know what we’ll throw your way once you hit the start line.
10,000 volts just wasn’t enough… Electroshock Therapy now features thicker wires, sure to shock your senses. Oh, and while you’re dodging the cables, try not to trip over the low hanging ropes and straps.
Remember, this is the last obstacle on course and everyone will be watching… a face-plant would just be embarrassing.
KISS OF MUD
Prepare to army crawl 33 yards. That’s right, we’ve extended Kiss Of Mud to 100 feet. With a mere 14″ of space between the ground and the barbed wire, the choice between mud and blood is yours.
🧊 Take a dip & prove you’ve got the grit. There’s no better cure for cold feet than a giant ice bath.
Cue this year’s version of Arctic Enema. Submerge yourself in freezing-cold water as you swim under and climb over the barricades.
Beware, this heavy netting will pin you to the ground.
Sheer strength won’t be enough to conquer this obstacle. The cargo net is staked down every 10 feet, forcing you to either crawl across on your knees or bend over so the net slides across your back, helping other Mudders through.
You thought Cage Crawl made you feel claustrophobic before? Your 4″ of breathing room just got even smaller.
As you pull yourself across the watery trench, mop heads will graze across your face. Too close for comfort? Never.
As if army crawling and dodging cables wasn’t enough, you’ll face a new challenge – squeezing below the electrified bar hanging overhead.
What happens if you bump into it? We’ll leave that up to your imagination…
Grip, upper body strength, and momentum are your new best friends on Hangin’ Tough. Make nice with them, or you’ll be left hanging (or better yet, on the ground).
In 2023, Hangin’ Tough has traded its traditional hanging rings, foot plates and trapeze bars with knotted handholds & footholds – giving you even less surface area to grip on to.
As you climb along the underside of this suspended strap, beware of the buoys lurking in your path.
If you plan to make it across to the other side, you’ll have to work around them… which means you might find yourself in some pretty interesting positions. Spectators, keep your cameras at the ready for this one.

Prices rise September 30. Don’t let this be another one of those “should’ve, could’ve, would’ves”… DO IT.
