Mud Hero

Canyon Ski Resort

Created and perfected over the past four years by the wonderfully insane team at Crazy Canucks, Mud Hero is the most fun you’ll ever have covered head-to-toe in mud. Take on the muddiest challenge ever and crank your adrenaline as you push yourself and your fellow Heroes to the finish line, smiling every inch of the way. Finally, celebrate your achievement with other mud-lovers and spectators at the post-race Mud Bash, with a barbecue, bevies, live music and more. If you’re mad about mud – or just plain mad – this is the event for you.

Test your mettle at either (or both!) of two annual obstacle races. Red Deer is home to Mud Hero, Canada’s largest mud obstacle race. Held annually at Canyon Ski Resort, the 6 km course features more than 16 obstacles, mud, water and challenging terrain. And Red Deer hosts Alberta’s only Super Spartan race featuring an 8-miles course with more than 24 obstacles and rugged terrain.

Can you beat the ranch tracker? No matter how fast you run or how well you hide, the Ranchtracker at Heritage Ranch will find you. Outrunning a cowboy is never easy. Get dropped in the woods and see if you can beat the man in the saddle. Win or lose, you’ll get a steak dinner after the chase is over. Heritage Ranch also offers Date Night – for romantics only! Their carriage date night package includes a private 30-minute sleigh ride along a trail lit with 20,000 lights, a five-course gourmet dinner with wine, a long stem rose and a box of chocolates.

Enjoy a guided evening of snowshoeing under the stars, right in the City of Red Deer with Pursuit Adventures. Relax with a pint of your favourite locally brewed beer and wings at the Westlake Grill afterwards. This tour is recommended for those 18 years and older.
