2017 Obstacles

Check out the obstacles in the 2017 Tippy Mud Run, along with 3 NEW OBSTACLES never seen before at Cary Camp!

Carry Your Burden:  Singles or teams pick up an atlas stone (or stones) and maneuver it around the course. Stones vary from 75 lbs. to 95 lbs. (Only competitive participants are required to carry stones)

Muddy Mambo:  A series of up and down mud pits full of a muddy, watery mix. Runners finish with a climb over heaping mounds of mud.

Not Too Proud to Crawl:   A belly crawl built to challenge any and all participants.

Slosh Pipes: Whatever is in these pipes knows how to move! Carry these odd objects around a series of obstacles.

Tire Alley: Crawl under, pick up, and flip over every size of tire you can imagine as you make your way through Tire Alley!

Muddy Mayhem:  It takes no time to get muddy at the Tippy Mud Run. Be prepared for mud pits at every turn.

Pitfall Scary:  Finish the race in style with our signature giant crawling mud pit!

No Bridge Over Troubled Waters:  Experience a wet running through Wildcat Creek on foot.  Be prepared to wade in waist deep water.

Valley of Hurt:  A series of heart pumping hills throughout the course, a true test of endurance where you’ll need to dig deep.

Wet Way Down:  A crowd favorite, our 100+ foot slide is sure to put a smile on your face!
