Tough Mudder details slow to emerge

Tough Mudder Vancouver will return in 2013, taking place on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 at a location still to be determined. The website says only that "Tough Mudder Vancouver 2013 will be within a 1 hour, 30 minute drive of Vancouver, B.C.," but does not indicate whether it will return to Whistler Olympic Park.

Whistler Sport Legacies, which owns and operates Whistler Olympic Park where the 2012 event was held, acknowledged that they were in final negotiations with Tough Mudder organizers regarding 2013. As well, the municipality confirmed at the Nov. 20 council meeting that they were part of the negotiations to sign a three-to-five year contract with Tough Mudder to host the event here.
