Mud run coming to Fernie this summer

Fernie’s newest summer event is not for the faint of heart. Happening for the first time this July, Mudd, Sweat, and Tears Rockies is a 10 kilometre obstacle course mud run.

Taking place at Fernie Alpine Resort the course will combine natural features already in place at the ski hill along with a series of constructed obstacles. Participants, or ‘mudders’, will find themselves crawling, climbing, swimming, carrying, and dragging themselves up, over, under, through, and around just about everything they can imagine.

“The resort’s proximity to Calgary, more than 2,500 plus acres of skiable terrain, the summer mountain bike park, aerial adventure park, and the iconic setting in the Canadian Rockies provides for an endless amount of course design options,” said John Reed, with Mudd, Sweat, and Tears. “Plus, the fact that the Fernie Alpine Resort is an RCR (Resorts of the Canadian Rockies) property makes for a solid foundation and a great partnership over the long term.”

Mudd, Sweat, and Tears offers five kilometre, 10 kilometre, and ‘Monster’ obstacle course mud runs all over the world. Mudd, Sweat, and Tears Rockies is July 6 and 7, 2013. Registration will be open in early February.
