Published On 1/11/2016

The five-mile obstacle course series designed for women, by women launches new obstacles and heads to five Canadian events in 2016.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (JANUARY 13, 2016) — Today, Mudderella, the five-mile leading obstacle event series for women, unveils brand-new obstacles for its 2016 events season. The obstacle innovations developed for this year will test participants’ balance, strength, agility and fear of heights like never before and will debut on-site at all 2016 events.

New obstacles hitting the course in 2016 include:

•    Peak Performance: Mudderellas must take a running head start to catapult over the top of this ramp-like obstacle that requires upper body strength and speed. Once your reach the top, grab hold of a rope and hoist yourself over before sliding down the opposite side. Built using trampoline material, the surface gets slicker as the mud piles on, making this obstacle as exhilarating as it is challenging.

•    Charlie’s Angels: Make your way to the top of this massive and steep A-frame structure by grabbing for footholds and working together to ascend over the top. Charlie’s Angels will test core and grip strength and stability, giving participants a full-body workout.

•    Stunt Double: Leave your stunt double at home for this one and face your fears with your team by your side. Participants will leap off this 10’ platform onto a large inflatable below, giving them an adrenaline rush and true sense of accomplishment.
“Our new obstacles for 2016 are more challenging and fierce than ever before,” said Ali Schmidt, Event Director for Mudderella. “Mudderella is about being part of a community that celebrates women’s strengths, and we’re thrilled to deliver a new experience at every event this year, giving thousands of new and returning Mudderellas the chance to come together and crush it at the best course we’ve ever built.”

Mudderella will host two events in Canada in 2016, making it the perfect weekend getaway or destination event for friends and family to take together. The event series will be heading to:

Mudderella Toronto: August 27, 2016 at Bingemans in Kitchener, Ontario:

•    Mudderella Toronto is the perfect opportunity for a family-friendly weekend getaway. Spend your days drifting down the Grand River, exploring the quaint town of Kitchener-Waterloo, and your nights making s’mores around a campfire.

Mudderella Whistler: September 24, 2016 at Whistler-Blackcomb in Whistler, BC:

•    Join thousands of women in conquering challenging obstacles and a 8-11 km run atop Whistler’s world-famous Blackcomb Mountain. Serving up some of the most breathtaking views in the Northwest, this is the ultimate outdoor-lovers weekend getaway destination.

Over 95% of participants sign up as a team, and events are non-competitive and untimed to encourage participants to work together as they overcome 5+ miles of diverse terrain and 12-15 signature obstacles. Mudderella encourages women from all athletic backgrounds to join the fun and take on a true athletic challenge while sharing an experience completely out of the ordinary.

In 2016, Mudderella Canada will once again partner with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit that’s dedicated to creating a future without breast cancer through funding vital research, education and health promotion programs. To date, Mudderella participants have raised over $400,000 for our charity partners worldwide.

“The determination and strength of Mudderella participants is an inspiration to the CBCF community, and because of your generosity, this partnership supports research that makes a real difference improving the lives of people experiencing breast cancer," said Lynne Hudson, CEO of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Registration is now open for 2016 Mudderella events; spectator tickets are also available.  For those looking for a discounted registration price, volunteer opportunities are available. To join the Mudderella conversation on social, visit Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
