Tough Mudder Gears Up For An Epic 2015

tough-mudder-2015

Because 2014 was such a huge year for Tough Mudder, we could only assume that the company would have some seriously epic events and new features planned for 2015. Well, we were right. Tough Mudder recently released a ton of exciting information about what’s ahead for the rest of the year.

The good news starts out with details about some of the new obstacles Tough Mudder participants will be encountering during their chosen events.

Funky Monkey 2.0 is one of the many obstacles created just for 2015. The first half of this obstacle is regular monkey bars, while the second half requires you to use a trapeze bar to swing onto and hold a descending pipe, where you will then shimmy down to your finish.

Everest 2.0 is an improved version of the orignal Everest obstacle, which has a harder-to-reach, much higher summit than before, and it will continue to remain one of the most challenging team-oriented obstacles you’ll find.

Arctic Enema 2.0 is the newest edition of the ice bath obstacle Tough Mudder is so well known for. This brutal obstacle forces you down a slide, under a chain-link fence, and then right into some frigid ice water. From there, you’ll have to get yourself over a wooden partition to finish.

Hold Your Wood 2.0 is another classic challenge that has been revamped at bit for 2015. Mudders will work together to carry a gigantic log through a stretch of big walls. 

In addition to all this, Electroshock Therapy 2.0, the obstacle at Tough Mudder that often scares Mudders more than any other, is back with more voltage and a new “hot zone” that is full of even higher voltage wires. 

Mudder Village obstacles are another great thing that has been added to the Tough Mudder experience, which are obstacles that official Mudder participants as well as spectators can participate in. Some of these Mudder Village obstacles include Fire In Your Hole — a water slide through fire, Ring Of Fire — a drop into a pool of water through fire, and Human Hamster Wheel — a constantly revolving set of monkey bars.

Tough Mudder also just released a video trailer about the upcoming 2015 season, which you can watch below.
