Whistler, B.C. – Tough Mudder returns to Whistler June 15 – 16, 2019, ready to test participants’ mental and physical strength throughout the rugged and beautifully steep landscape of Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley.

This year, Tough Mudder will feature two obstacle course options to choose from. The Tough Mudder Classic, a 13 km course with 25 obstacles, or the Tough Mudder 5K, a shorter, 5 km version of the Tough Mudder Classic with 13 obstacles. Each option will feature a variety of muddy challenges and military-style obstacles such as slippery quarter-pipes, massive rotating blocks, ice plunges, and a variety of crawling and climbing challenges. Registration for both the Tough Mudder Classic and Tough Mudder 5K is still open.

Whistler’s vibrant Village, just a short drive from the Callaghan Valley, is the Tough Mudder Basecamp. The ultimate place to toast to victory, Tough Mudder participants and spectators alike can choose from a wide variety of world-class dining options featuring multiple sun-soaked patios as well as exciting bars and lounges all within Whistler Village. Finding a place to relax and recharge also comes easy with multiple comfortable lodging options to stay in and a wide selection of spas to refresh in.

While participating in Tough Mudder is already a thrill-seeker’s dream, the adventures don’t end there. Whistler is the gateway to adventure with a wide offering of summer activities to discover like ziplining between mountains, ATV tours through rugged backcountry, and gravity-defying biking in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.

With so much to explore, experiencing everything Whistler has to offer this summer requires more than just a weekend.
