Following a highly successful event in September 2015, which brought more than 8,000 participants to Snowmass Village, Tough Mudder announced Nov. 10 that it will return to Snowmass once again to host Tough Mudder Colorado on Sept. 10 and 11, 2016. The 10-plus-mile course featuring signature Tough Mudder obstacles is the ultimate test of physical and mental strength, stamina and teamwork. The course ascends over 9,000 feet in elevation, making the event as exhilarating as it is challenging. Registrations are now open for the event and can be purchased by visiting

For 2016 events, Tough Mudder also has announced a partnership with renowned outdoor apparel brand Merrell, which will include performance finisher T-shirts for participants and a joint product line that will feature Merrell’s expertise in designing premier outdoor gear.

“We are thrilled to return to Snowmass once again for Tough Mudder Colorado,” said Courtney Jordan, Event Director for Tough Mudder. “We have such a strong partnership with the Snowmass Village community, and we look forward to building on the success of last year’s event as well as providing a positive economic impact on the region, as we bring together Mudders from all over the world to see what’s in store for 2016.”

Tough Mudder Colorado also will have Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder, a muddy obstacle course designed for kids 7-12. With obstacles such as Gooey Shoes, Mount Mud and Secret Agent Squeeze, Fruit Shoot Mini Mudder is a one-mile course that gives kids a chance to work as a team, get muddy and experience the thrill of outdoor adventures.
