Winners will receive 2 tickets to a 2022 Tough Mudder along with the chance to see their obstacle built and tested in real life.


It’s time for you, the mad obstacle scientists of Mudder Nation to create some of the wildest obstacles that you would like to see on course. We’re looking for some crazy new additions to the course in 2022 and, to kick-start the madness, we want your help with our community-sourced Design Obstacle Challenge.

Previous winners of the challenge became Kong Infinity and more recently Tipping Point. Now is the time to unleash all your pent-up creativity on the rest of Mudder Nation.

We’ll be picking an overall winner and a people’s choice.


Submit your obstacle designs above before the challenge closes on 10 September. The Obstacle Innovation Team will choose the winner, and the winning design will have the opportunity to be constructed for testing at our Central Florida event on 11-12 December, along with two tickets to a 2022 Tough Mudder event. 

There will also be a “People’s Choice” award up for grabs for those designs featuring a little crazier design ideas.

Simply sketch or build your design with anything you have lying around. Take a photo or screenshot and submit it above.

All designs will be judged on the following 4  pieces of criteria, so please consider these when designing your own creation. Or don’t – it’s up to you.

  1. Originality
  2. How the design represents our Obstacle criteria; Grit, Teamwork, Strength & Fun
  3. Ease of construction
  4. Creativity of the name
