Obstacles


Obstacles List & Guidelines

Note: All obstacles MUST be completed in the manner in which they are designed to be completed. Using alternative methods to complete an obstacle will result in either a required additional attempt using the correct method to complete the obstacle OR forfeiting your Mud Titan Elite wristband due to obstacle non-completion. (For example, you MAY NOT use the support braces on the wall climb obstacles to help yourself climb over.) This goes for any obstacle. If you are unsure how to complete an obstacle, ask the volunteer or staff member at that obstacle. Mud Titan Elite runners must do the most difficult of the parts of the obstacles.

Elite wave Attempts – Obstacles may be attempted an unlimited number of times. (There are no workout alternatives.) If you are unable to complete an obstacle on your first attempt, you must make your way to the far right lane (Retry lane) or obstacle area to make additional attempts. This is to avoid impeding athletes behind you who are attempting an obstacle for the first time.
