Pole Dancer

Making Olympic parallel bars look like a preschool playground attraction, Pole Dancer is the ultimate test of tricep toughness. On this obstacle, Mudders must navigate up and down two slippery, wobbly bars using only their hands and arms. Get all bent out of shape and plummet to a pool below.

Balls to the Wall

Obviously we’re talking about your intense grit here. Balls to the Wall is no elementary school gym class rope climb – but it has the potential to be just as embarrassing. This monster of an obstacle will have you scaling a wall three and a half meters in the air using only a muddy rope and what’s left of your strength. Once you reach the top, work up the courage to descend the rope on the other side.

Greased Lightning

A super-slick, gravity-powered obstacle that’ll channel your inner mini Mudder, Greased Lightning is a grown-up’s Slip n’ Slide that sends Mudders flying down a greased-up tarp and into a pit of muddy water. Just sit back and enjoy the slide.

King of the Mountain

Remember playing King of the Mountain in grade school? Well this is nothing like that. A five-meter high stack of huge, farm-grade hay bales, Mudders must work together to help one another reach the summit before taking in the sweet view with arms raised and heads tilted back.
