Thick, soupy mud crawls under barbed wire were spread out on several parts of the course; just when you got the mud out of... wherever, you were crawling or swimming in the mud again. Once again, good show Rugged Maniac, there were a lot of water pits dug (and some were lined with plastic too) all over the damn course. Lots? Yes. Gratuitous use of mud pits in lieu of "real" obstacles? No.
