The world’s toughest race is heading back to Callaghan Valley this summer on June 20-21, 2015. This massive obstacle course is designed to be much more intense this year, with a tear gas chamber as the newest addition.
The Toughest Course on the Planet
Although designed to test your stamina and athletic skill, Tough Mudder was never meant to be a race against time. This military obstacle course is meant to encourage camaraderie by helping each Mudder get through the course, whether you’re running solo or as part of a team. The whole ‘Mudder Nation’ is there to support you at when Everest 2.0 just seems impossible to climb over.
This year the crazy guys behind the event has added an new ‘tear gas’ chamber called Cry Baby. The organizers are reassuring all Mudders that the vapour is especially formulated to be completely safe, and that, just like all the other obstacles you’ll encounter, fear is all in the mind. For brief period, they will be a little lax on ‘no whining’ policy, as this obstacle is meant to make anyone shed a few tears.
For Mudders near and far heading to Callaghan Valley in Whistler for the weekend, be prepared for a busier road. Typically, the driving time from Vancouver to Whistler is about an hour and a half. If you’re coming from Seattle, prepare to be on the road for about 3 hours and 50 minutes. Shuttles will be available at certain spots around Whistler to pick-up and drop off Mudders to the event start venue. Parking details and pick-up locations will be announced closer to race date. Event spectators are always welcome to cheer your loved ones on!
For full effect, we highly suggest staying up in Whistler for the weekend, and heading over to the hot tub or Scandinave Spa for a well deserved rest and relaxation. The parties carry on in Whistler Village well into the wee hours of the night. Besides, it’s not every day you get to survive getting electrocuted, or tear-gassed!
