Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.

May 2, 2015 marks the five year anniversary of Tough Mudder’s very first event at Bear Creek ski resort in Pennsylvania. Needless to say, it’s been a wild, memorable, epic half-decade ride.

Right now, Tourism Whistler is running a contest offering an insane laundry list of prizes to one lucky Mudder.

The grand prize includes:
  • Round-trip coach air transportation to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
