Top 5 Most Awesome Obstacle Updates for 2015

By Matt Alesevich | 16. January 2015

 

They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection. Well we have a message for They: Oops. For 2015, our course designers have made some awesome updates to our signature Tough Mudder obstacles.

Here are some new-and-improved challenges you’ll encounter in 2015.

Everest 2.0


With an increased height, rounded top and extra-slippery surface, this keystone Tough Mudder obstacle is more team-oriented than ever. Higher and slicker with a tougher summit to grip, getting up Everest without a helping hand has never been harder.

Funky Monkey 2.0


Even the most seasoned Mudders have never seen monkey bars as funky as these. The first half of the obstacle: monkey business as usual. During the second half, however, Mudders must grab a trapeze bar, swing onto a descending pipe and shimmy hand-over-hand to the finish.

Electroshock Therapy 2.0


The electrifying crown jewel of every Tough Mudder course has just upped it’s shock value. Now equipped with a voltage meter to provide up-to-the-second voltage flow, EST 2.0 features a “hot zone” which houses wires with increased voltage.

Arctic Enema 2.0


A nerve-wracking update to Tough Mudder’s signature ice bath obstacle, Arctic Enema 2.0 forces Mudders down a short slide, under a chain-link fence, and into freezing cold ice water. Once submerged, Mudders must boost themselves and fellow Mudders over a wood partition in the middle of the vessel before emerging victorious.

Hold Your Wood 2.0


What was once a tiresome trudge with a log on your shoulder is now a four to eight Mudder test of timber-toting, troubleshooting teamwork. For a stretch of course, Mudders must band together and carry a massive log over, under and through walls while ensuring no Mudder gets left behind.
