We’re about to dive into one of the muddiest, wildest, and downright dirtiest challenges at Tough Mudder – the legendary “Kiss of Mud”.
Let’s get down and dirty, shall we?
What is Kiss of Mud?
A grueling crawl through thick mud beneath menacing barbed wires that’ll test your mettle like never before. And just when you thought it couldn’t get tougher, this year, we’ve lowered those barbed wires to raise the stakes and unleash a whole new level of mudder mayhem.
How to take on Kiss of Mud
Mud warriors, it’s crunch time. With only a slim 18″ of clearance, you’ve got to become one with the mud. Plant those cheeks firmly down, and let the muck embrace your every move. Trust us, this move’s all in the name.
Probably the most popular technique for tackling Kiss of Mud. Although it means taking the brunt of the uneven, muddy ground on your forearms it also means you can see directly ahead of you, shimmy alongside your teammates and look fairly cool in photos.
KEEP A STRONG CORE
Engage that core, tighten those abs, engage those muscles, and give your core the workout of a lifetime.
To keep low and in control you’ll need to engage your core and keep it strong until the end.
WEAR DECENT TROUSERS 😉
Or at least a large pair of pants. Anything really, as long as it protects your dignity if you do happen to get snared in the barbed wire. Many a Mudder has completed the course baring a little more than they planned after a run-in with Kiss of Mud.
