Are you tough enough to face down the Ring of Fire or the Arctic Enema? We thought so, too. Set in the beautiful setting of Whistler, B.C., with spectacular views and terrain is what makes this the perfect setting for the adventure-filled competition known as the Tough Mudder. This year's race will be a gruelling 18 to 20-kilometre course. With a combination of rugged mountain terrian, and beautiful lakes and rivers, Whistler's Tough Mudder course is one of the world's best. Get some friends together and sign up to see if you've got what it takes to wear the badge of courage - the orange headband. 

Featured obstacles

The Block Ness Monster

The Block Ness Monster is as epic and tricky as Nessie herself. Mudders have to push, pull, and roll their way through 60ft of slick, rotating barriers. With a little help from your friends, you can rock and roll your way through Tough Mudder's newest obstacle taking teamwork to a whole new level.

King of the Swingers

Remember that rope swing you built as a kid? Ours is bigger. Leap from a 12 foot platform to catch a swing arm and reach with all your might to tap the bell dangling from above. Many will attempt - few will make that sweet bell-ringing music.

Frequent Flyers' Club

As a Legionnaire, you earn the right to bypass Electroshock Therapy at the end of a Tough Mudder Course. Unlike the walk of shame you did this morning, this obstacle takes you to higher ground to watch first timers dodge a field of wires. After your exit to a crash pad below, what comes next is up to you - go straight for a Cold Shock Top or go back for a dose of Electroshock.

Rain Man

Guaranteed to induce fear, a step up from Cage Crawl for Legionnaires only. The pit is deeper, water pours in from above, and it all starts in darkness. This watery trough will test your mental grit in a whole new way.

Pyramid Scheme

Appearing at Tough Mudder and Tough Mudder Half

It requires a bit of plotting, but unlike its namesake, this obstacle is all about teamwork. Start with a strong base and scramble, climb, and push your way up a slippery incline with the help of your fellow Mudders. Even with an added strip of Merrell’s stickiest rubber sole rolled across its mid-section, this is one obstacle you can’t go alone.

Arctic Enema® 2.0

Is a highway to brain freeze in all the wrong places. Our favorite icy plunge has been updated to include a high speed entry slide and center wall you must scale to escape the 10 tons of ice we jam into this frigid dumpster dive.


The Legionnaires’ version of The Liberator, this 12' wall is built the same, but the challenge increases tenfold. This time it's fewer pegs – fewer holes. There’s only one way up this mountain, and it won’t be easy.

Cage Crawl

Appearing at Tough Mudder

This is a perfect chance to practice your backstroke, under 60ft of steel fence with only a few inches of air. In this obstacle, Mudders lay on their back and pull their way through this long, watery trench. Muster up the mental grit and you’ll do just fine. It’s as easy as breathing.

Electroshock Therapy®

The last thing standing between you and that cold Shock Top is just a short, muddy sprint. It couldn't be that bad, right? Ask your Legionnaire friends. This field of dangling wires delivers a punch at 10,000 volts. It's our way of saying congratulations.

Birth Canal

You’ve already been through this obstacle once, but here’s a second chance to keep it fresh in your memory. Crawl and push your way through a gauntlet of sloshing, weighted barriers to find freedom on the other side. With over 100lbs of water resting on your back, this is no time to be a baby.

Get a team together

Create a team or join as an individual. You can have as many members on your team as you want because the Tough Mudder is a competition built on teamwork and no one gets left behind. Most participants sign up as a team to make the experience more accessible to everyone.
