Obstacle Racing has become a pretty big thing in the last few years... and if you haven't tried one, you should. They are ridiculous fun. There are a variety of different types ranging from simple, fun 5ks that families can run all the way up to the World's Toughest Mudder -- which can be as long as 90 miles of grueling torture. What obstacle do you dread the most? That you see coming and grit your teeth? Vote, and Add any I missed!

Only in Tough Mudders, the odds of getting a serious electrical shock are high.
This is really difficult to do without help.
Hang on to the cut pieces of 2x4 nailed to the wall and don't fall till you get to the other side.
A rope over a body of water. Get across it any way you can.
Up a knotted rope, ring the bell
What it says. Exhausting.
Immerse yourself in ice water. With actual ice in it.
If you don't know how to throw a spear (because who does?), you're taking that penalty.
Super steep muddy hill
Barbed Wire Crawl
Can be long or short, but always involves a lot of rolling and commando crawling in mud.
So high, you'll probably need help.
Swing from rings across a muddy water pit
Climb a greased slope.
Belly crawl through electrified strings
This could be a log or a bucket of sand or a concrete block on a chain.
Jump from uneven post to wobbly post. Don't fall.
Rubber band around ankles, hop in mud until your quads scream.
Varying in height from 5' to 8'. Sometimes there are ways to climb, and other times you have to have help or jump really high and pull yourself up.
Pretty much what it says
Hold Your Wood
Carry a giant log over your head, uphill
Wiggle through tubes
Walk The Plank
Jump off the end.
Up and over a big pile of logs
