Snow Valley

In Snow Valley, California, Tough Mudder competitors burrow through a waterlogged series of tunnels dubbed, the Boa Constrictor. The charge continues under barbed wire through a shallow, muddy pool, with the competitors wriggling on their bellies. Pushing further through the course, participants must tackle a monster log straddling a footpath and then some monkey bar work. After these various obstacles, things get claustrophobic again, as the competitors enter a dark muddy tunnel and break out only to be saddled with some serious log carrying. Finally, this Tough Mudder video features mudders traversing a stretch of water along a rope.

Squaw Valley

The event kicks off with a barrage of orange smoke and competitors crawling on their elbows through a muddy pool beneath barbed wire that threatens them from above. Proving that the teamwork part of the Tough Mudder ethos counts, participants give the other runners a hand during tough obstacles, like the rope net, a hole-filled net bridge, or Twinkle Toes, a skinny bridge strung across a stretch of water. Some competitors desperately inch across supporting their bodies on their hands.

Georgia Mud

Camaraderie kicks in at the sheer wooden wall before the monkey bars challenge participants. After the hanging workout is the log run – the logs look reasonably light, but they feel like lead after numerous other obstacles. The rough bark isn’t kind to the shoulders, and upper body needs to stay in good condition is would-be mudders plan on besting the gymnastics-style dangling hoops.
