On Aug. 17, hundreds of fitness buffs, runners and athletes will ascend the slopes of Mount Washington Alpine Resort to compete in Vancouver Island’s first obstacle course race put on by Mudd, Sweat & Tears – purveyors of some of the most challenging and rewarding obstacle course races in Canada.

From the spectacular views of the Comox Glacier and Strathcona Park, to the celebrated views of the Strait of Georgia, this year-round alpine resort transforms itself from powder deep turns into a hiker’s paradise; and with numerous natural obstacles and nose bleed steeps, the course promises to be as tough as the competition.

“Mount Washington offers one of the most spectacular coastal alpine settings in Canada,” says John Reed, Partnerships and Business Development, Adventure Architects. “Adventure seekers from around the globe experience all the mountain has to offer every year, and we’re excited to bring together some of B.C.’s top athletes and obstacle course racers.”

Founded by Canada’s own Adventure Architects, a professional sports marketing and event management company, the one-day, spectator-friendly event challenges participants’ stamina, mental fitness and strength, with a number of  adrenaline-fuelled obstacles including: ropes, climbing walls, steep ascents and ice baths, and naturally all things mud!

Extreme obstacle course racing is one of the latest and fiercest fitness trends to move everyone from adrenaline aficionados to routine health buffs. From ski resorts and famous landmarks to urban city centres, each course is chosen and designed with Canada’s ultimate outdoor adventure ranges in mind.

Every location surprises participants with signature obstacles that reflect the unique characteristics of each destination. Across Canada, all races are packed with equal parts intensity and difficulty, but all courses are achievable.

Competitiveness aside, this obstacle course event is as much about crossing the finish line and helping your fellow competitors throughout the course, as it is about winning the race.

If you think you have what it takes to race alongside the toughest, bravest, and boldest endurance athletes in Canada, prove it! Team and individual registrations are available now for all locations and dates. For more information, visit www.muddsweatandtears.com. Prices range from $60 to $120 per person.

Mudd, Sweat & Tears (MST) pushes athletes, runners and fitness enthusiasts to the limit with the ultimate 5K and 10K mud run obstacle course race. Competitors can prove endurance, test toughness, and have a crazy amount of fun with the MST race lineup, and then take on the epic MST monster obstacle course mud run, in addition to the 5K and 10K format in 2014.

Not for the faint of heart or unprepared. Participants will get dirty, muddy, scraped up, cold, physically and mentally punished, and may end up smiling continuously. The MST series supports Breakfast Clubs of Canada as their national charity partner by donating a portion of net receipts towards the organization that raises money to ensure every child in Canada has an equal start in life.

The 2013 Mudd, Sweat & Tears race series includes six events across Canada, from Vancouver Island to Niagara Falls. By 2014, the USA and Australia will host events on their home turf. For more information, schedule of events, dates, and locations, visit www.muddsweatandtears.com.
