Tough Mudder's Brand New 2018 Obstacles

By TMHQ | January 10, 2018

 

For months you've been waiting, wondering, and guessing. There have been teasers, hints and a few sneak peeks but finally today is the day and these are your brand new 2018 Tough Mudder obstacles.

New 2018 Tough Mudder Obstacles

This year we're introducing a brand new finisher obstacle for all Tough Mudder weekend participants.

Happy Ending presented by Merrell

In 2018 it's all about being #TougherTogether and this gigantic finisher obstacle is the physical embodiment of that idea, as participants of all abilities and from different formats come together at the end of the course.

We're pushing boundaries once more by creating the biggest structure ever in obstacle course racing history. Happy Ending will be nearly 25 feet tall, more than 80 feet wide and 100 feet long.

To complete Happy Ending participants will have to climb their way up a 40 angled slippery structure, building human ladders and pulling their team to the top. Once at the summit the challenge isn't over as Mudders must shoot feet-first down a 30 foot slide into a pit of water.

This year we're heading back to basics, remembering that it's the community that got us here and that we're #TougherTogether. This obstacle will bring first timers and legionnaires together so that everyone can share in the Tough Mudder spirit as they finish the course.

Kong Infinity

For the first time ever in Tough Mudder history a Tough Mudder Obstacle Design Challenge winning obstacle will be featured on the course, at Tough Mudder events around the globe. Kong Infinity was designed by Ross Munro and Jonny McDonald from Glasgow, UK.

A spin on the iconic Kong, Mudders will climb a 15 foot structure, at the top they will find a barrell with handles fixed around its circumference. Participants will need upper body strength and agility as they rotate the barrell along tracks, 20 feet in the air. Taking an already difficult obstacle to another level, Kong Infinity will be one of the most technically demanding obstacles on course.

And Kong in it's original form? It isn't being retired, instead it will be moved onto course so that all Mudders, not just Legionnaires can give it a try.

The Tough Mudder Vault

To celebrate our rich history of obstacle innovation we're asking Mudder Nation to choose their favourite obstacles of times gone by and bring them back onto course in 2018.

Mudders have the choice of 25 classic obstacles, and will be able to vote for their favorite until January 26. The winning obstacles will be announced on February 5.

Two to three Vault obstacles will be featured on every course, giving Mudders the chance to relive some of their favourite obstacles from the past.
