Tough Mudder Whistler

Whistler Tough Mudder

Tough Mudder WhistlerPush your body to the limit and have a great time doing it during the 2014 Tough Mudder Whistler. This year's Tough Mudder roles through town on June 22nd and 23rd, once again taking place in Whistler Olympic Park.

For those who are unfamiliar with Tough Mudder it originated when the founders decided to create a military style training course that could be accessed by the general population. Since its inception, Tough Mudder has grown massively in popularity and now Mudder events take place throughout the world under the Tough Mudder brand. Whistler is currently holding its 4th version of the race and has had to incorporate two Mudder dates in order to accommodate the size of the event.

During the Whistler Tough Mudder participants must navigate a 10 - 12KM long course packed with 20 - 25 obstacles. Every year the obstacles vary with some returning and new ones being added. Some of the staples include the ice bath, electric shock therapy, wall climb, log carrying and cage crawl.

For those looking to compete in a Tough Mudder it's generally advised that you enter with a team or create a team prior to the event. Many of the obstacles will require help from fellow Mudders making it imperative you have a support system around you.

Upon completion of the event Mudders will gather together in the post race area for a frosty beer or other beverage. For those looking to keep the party going there will also be a Tough Mudder after party following each event.
