Mud Pit
Unlike the Mud Pit used in the TTC in Hollister, this obstacle is pre-run by the judges to make sure it is not too hard - or too easy. Each team has 5 minutes to complete the event, and winching is allowed. If you time out your score will be recorded in feet traveled. In this years competition we ran dualing mud pits, Experts on the right and Specialist on the left. As you can see, we made it a little more challengeing for the big boys (and girls) this year.
