Pyramid Scheme

As the name suggests, it's all about forming a pyramid and lifting your fellow Mudders to glory. Even if you have superhuman strength and can make it up alone, resist the urge to take a running start to get yourself to the top - use teamwork instead. Try and boost up a couple of your teammates first, so they can lie down on top and pull others up the face. Or get to know your teammates better: climb their shoulders.

Tough Mudder Tips

Decide whether you'll mostly be a puller or a booster. If you're going to pull other Mudders up Pyramid Scheme, ask a fellow Mudder if you can climb his or her shoulders to get to the top and pull people up. If you're going to boost people, wedge yourself in at the base and help others climb up the slippery face by boosting them up or letting them climb your shoulders. Either way, you're only getting to the top with teamwork.

Side of my knee. Stabilizers...Going downstairs is a little painful but what a great event. Had the best time. Thanks to everybody that participated! I'll be back for sure.
