The first obstacle runners had to tackle was “live wires” which gave participants a shock as they passed hanging lines. Others included “HazMat Hills” where runners trudged through muddy waters and climbed slick hills, “Hang Tough”- rings crossing  a mud pit, where runners had to try to cross without falling in, and many more.
