Canada's Toughest Mudder, Whistler
At a glance: Two unique 8 km loops run circuit-style for 8 hours. Starts at midnight.
For those who think they've done it all, the brains behind Tough Mudder have come out with a new, extreme challenge. Starting at midnight, Mudders will take on a circuit-style endurance challenge lasting an incredible 8 hours - most of it run in the dark, with obstacles that are tougher than ever. It’s the only Toughest Mudder to be held in Canada, and a qualifier for the World’s Toughest Mudder event.
At a glance: 16 - 20 km, 20+ obstacles. The same course is run both days.
Tough Mudder Whistler is a Mountain Course where the terrain is added to the man-made obstacles for a totally unique experience. The course changes every year with details released closer to the event - you will have to prepare for anything and everything! Previous years have seen participants taking on ice water plunges, electrical shocks, crawling, climbing and more.
Tough Mudder Teams
Are you tough enough? Try, and you might just surprise yourself. You can do the event solo, but there’s nothing better than getting friends and workmates together to tackle the event as a team, helping each other through the obstacles. Be inspired and uplifted (literally!). The extra support will make your day.
Tough Mudder Half
At a glance: 8 km, 13 obstacles. The same course is run both days.
Tough Mudder Half features all the thrills of the original Tough Mudder over half the distance. This is a Mountain Course where steep, rocky terrain is added to the man-made obstacles for a totally unique experience - no ice, fire or electricity involved. The minimum age for the Half is 14 which means this year you can get muddy with the entire family.
Tough Mudder Half Teams
You can do the event solo to challenge yourself but you can also sign up with friends and do the event together, helping each other through the obstacles. Work teams are also welcome, with the new Tough Mudder Half format lending itself to corporate teams. Be inspired and uplifted (literally!). The extra support will make your day.
There's no two ways about it - whatever event you sign up for you're going to need a place to rest and refuel at the end. Located just 16 km north of the Tough Mudder site, Whistler mountain resort is THE place to stay. You'll want to add a couple days around the event to experience summer the Whistler way with a huge range of things to do, stunning scenery and a Village packed with sunny patios.
