Arctic Enema 2.0

Appearing at du Tough Mudder

Is a highway to brain freeze in all the wrong places. Our favourite icy plunge has been updated to include a high speed entry slide and centre wall you must scale to escape the 10 tons of ice we jam into this frigid dumpster dive.

Kiss of Mud

Appearing at du Tough Mudder and du Tough Mudder Half

Commonly the first obstacle on a Tough Mudder course, Kiss of Mud 2.0 puts you down in the muck right from the start. With less than 18” of clearance between tangled rows of barbed wire and your bum, and a floor of slushy cold mud beneath you, there’s nowhere to move but forward. At least now you can pretend you didn’t smell like this before.

The Liberator

Mudders must scale this nearly-vertical 12' face with a pair of wooden pegs. Choose the wrong hole, and you could be sent sliding back to the bottom, or stuck dangling like a twisted pretzel.

Electroshock Therapy®

Appearing at du Tough Mudder

The last thing standing between you and that cold finisher's pint is just a short, muddy sprint. It couldn't be that bad, right? Ask your Legionnaire friends. This field of dangling wires delivers a punch at 10,000 volts. It's our way of saying congratulations.

Everest 2.0

Appearing at du Tough Mudder and du Tough Mudder Half

This will be the fastest you’ll ever summit this mighty mountain, but the fall is just as quick. This slick quarter pipe is over 15’ tall, with a recurved top to make it extra hard to get that handhold. You can aim for the top, but there’s no promise you won’t end up at the bottom.

Mud Mile

This obstacle is a classic Tough Mudder fan favorite, with a few little tweaks to ensure no one comes out clean. We’ve dug the pits deeper, mounded them higher, and cut the angles steeper than ever before in this 2.0 remake. If you don’t start this obstacle with a team, you’ll come out with one, or maybe end up stuck for good.

Cage Crawl

Appearing at du Tough Mudder

This is a perfect chance to practice your backstroke, under 60ft of steel fence with only a few inches of air. In this obstacle, Mudders lay on their back and pull their way through this long, watery trench. Muster up the mental grit and you’ll do just fine. It’s as easy as breathing.

Funky Monkey

Appearing at du Tough Mudder

Right in the sweet spot between upper body strength and ability, Funky Monkey 2.0 starts with a pair of your favourite childhood monkey bars, angled upward to meet a trapeze. Which, if you can keep your momentum, will send you swinging into an iron pipe descent. Don't lose your nerve on this one, or you'll drop 6ft to take the swim of shame.

Berlin Walls

Appearing at du Tough Mudder and du Tough Mudder Half

This Tough Mudder staple keeps coming back bigger and badder. At 9’ 6”, that cleat at the bottom might give you a leg up, but it won’t make you Mary Poppins. Whatever your strategy for conquering this wall, don’t forget they come in pairs. And remember, there’s a difference between a helpful boost and an improper touch.

Pyramid Scheme

Appearing at du Tough Mudder

It requires a bit of plotting, but unlike its namesake, this obstacle is all about teamwork. Start with a strong base and scramble, climb, and push your way up a slippery incline with the help of your fellow Mudders. Even with an added strip of Merrell’s stickiest rubber sole rolled across its mid-section, this is one obstacle you can’t go alone.
