Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
As Tough Mudder's head course designer likes to say, jumping into Arctic Enema “is like quickly eating ice cream and getting punched in the balls at the same time.” Technically speaking, however, TM's 0-Degree Dumpster of Daze is an industrial sized dumpster filled with ice cold water and ice cubes topped with a barbed wire wooden divider that Mudders must swim under—the long way. This might sound tough enough - but the Tough Mudder Obstacle Innovation Lab are constantly striving to push Mudders even harder and in 2017 this is exactly what they've done.
Remember the sheer joy you felt as a kid the first time you made it across the monkey bars? First there was the struggle as you kicked your legs and tried to get your tiny arms to yank you from one bar to the next. Next was the frustration whenever you fell or had to jump down because it got too hard. But eventually with practice, you made it across.
