Tough Mudder Tips
Some Mudders with superhuman upper body strength and agility will be able to get up and over themselves. Those with a good vertical leap may be able to reach the top by planting a foot on the protruding wooden 2×6 near the bottom of the wall. Others will have to work together. To boost your teammates over the walls, interlace your fingers and let them step into your hands while they pull themselves over the obstacle.
