Sand Bag / Log Carry

Like the Bucket Brigade, the Sand Bag carry is one of the more challenging obstacles.  Although this obstacle doesn’t require any amazing acrobatic skills, it will test your intestinal fortitude.  Men and women alike will carry a bag filled with sand up and down steep inclines to insure that your legs feel the burn.  Like the Sand Bag Carry, there are variations of this obstacle in which you will carry a heavy log around a similar stretch of landscape.

Barbed Wire Crawl

Getting down and dirty in the Barbed Wire Crawl is mandatory. There are few things more challenging on your entire body than trekking through a rocky creek-bed on your elbows and knees trying to avoid getting ripped up by barbed wire just a few inches above you. Arch your back a little too much and you will need a new shirt and some band-aids. Lift your butt a bit too high and you may be mooning everyone behind you.
