This no-hands water crossing over a mesh bridge will give you a serious case of the Jelly Legs. Sweet talk the volunteers or they may blast you with a special surprise from the muck cannon.
First, pass below through a tangled web of elasticized mayhem. Later, climb above and say Hello to our giant arachnid, Steve.
It's a bouncy hop, skip and a jump atop a floating, pontoon barrel bridge, and it makes you feel pretty awesome.
A big, muddy, slippery-slidey, up-and-down hill. Conquering it will take teamwork, a sense of humor, and a bit of elbow grease, whatever that is.
Make like a snake or squirm like a worm as you wriggle your way to daylight.
This is one slippery slope to a mucktacular water entry.
If your backside wasn't muddy before, it will be after you pull yourself through this mucky pit. Pro tip: shake out your shorts as you exit.
Criss-crossing ropes above and below create a muck-tacular intersection in the middle of the water. Sorry, it's the traffic cop's day off.
Just like when you were a baby, except without the soiled drawers. Oh wait... never mind.
You did it! Try and cross arm-in-arm or hand-in-hand with your team. Strike a muck-heroic pose, take a bow, and wave to your squad or minions or gaggle of groupies. Give Puck the Muck Duck a rub for a world free of MS!
We have lifeguards on all obstacles with water over 5 feet deep. If you don't feel comfortable taking on an obstacle, you are welcome to skip it.
This is totally dependent on the participant, but it takes most participants 45 to 90 minutes to complete the course.

This will give you enough time to check-in, get your bib, and meet up with your team or spectating family and friends.
