Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of Devil’s Beard. It may not be 25ft tall or include lots of metal to look menacing but it’s every bit as tough.
Let’s breakdown this obstacle for the best tips and the do’s and don’ts.
Pro Tip: Stay Low
This may sound obvious with the idea of crawling through a cargo net, however, you’d be surprised how many Mudders try to stand up. Please don’t.
Follow T-Pain’s advice and stay low. You won’t need any boots with the fur though.
Mudders Help Mudders
Devil’s Beard is an obstacle where it pays to help out or be helped. Having someone temporarily hold the net for you or offer a hand will speed up your progress.
As always with any obstacle on the course, we encourage teamwork and a ‘Mudders help Mudders’ mentality.
It’s Not Always Good To Be Fast
Take that with any context you want…but for Devil’s Beard, you don’t want to rush through it. Go at a steady pace to ensure you don’t catch yourself on the cargo net and avoid any tripping.
