That’s right, Mudders, this year, whether you’re a newbie or a Legionnaire, you can choose your challenge and test your toughness like never before. Our all-new Level Up lanes offer a range of difficulty options at select obstacles throughout every Tough Mudder Classic and Tough Mudder 5K course.
So, crank it up a notch or take it down a peg—2019 is the year that you decide.
Tough Mudder Level Up Lanes
- Leap of Faith
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: A higher net that’s 3 feet off the water—requiring a full upper-body grab.
- Kiss of Mud
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: You’ll find a lower section of barbed wires (16 inches vs 20 inches) added to one side of the obstacle.
- Hold Your Wood
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Added heavy/long set of logs or run with x2 single log (x2 heavier than reg HYW).
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: A lower section of wires (4 inches lower, to be specific) and additional hanging obstacles.
- Devil’s Beard
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: You’ll still crawl under that crazy net—you’ll just do it while carrying a 60-pound sandbag.
- Berlin Walls
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: We’ve added a horizontal overhead ledge to the wall.
- Black Widow
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Forget the standard straps on Black Widow—you’ll swap those for a special challenge lane with colored straps. Just try to stay out of the drink, people.
- Pyramid Scheme
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Don’t slip up, but we’re adding grease or soap to a section of this obstacle.
- Cage Crawl
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: You’ll find an overhead plexiglass crawl under the section that’s 6 feet long and fully submerged.
- Augustus Gloop 2.0
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Lanes will have randomly placed grab holes instead of a ladder section climb-up. ‘Cause that’s just too easy.
- Arctic Enema
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: We’ve lowered the chain link section and added a baffle section.
- Funky Monkey
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: We’ve added covers to half of the rungs on the way up, so you’ll have to skip every other rung.
- The Gauntlet
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: You’ll find trouble steps on the balance beam section and swap 1-2 hanging rings with a bungee and ball.
- Electroshock Therapy
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: When you level up on EST, you’ll find a middle section with a higher density of wires. ZAP.
- Everest 2.0
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Call it Everest 3.0: You’ll find a new section added to this obstacle that’s 2 feet taller than our regular Everest.
- Level Up Lane Upgrade: Just in case the Hydrophobia tube isn’t claustrophobic enough for you, the LUL version reduces the tube diameter to 24 inches—and sits 3 inches lower in the water.
