Frequent Flyers’ Club

As a Legionnaire, you earn the right to bypass Electroshock Therapy at the end of a Tough Mudder Course. Unlike the walk of shame you did this morning, this obstacle takes you to higher ground to watch first timers dodge a field of wires. After your exit to a crash pad below, what comes next is up to you - go straight for a Cold Shock Top or go back for a dose of Electroshock.
