Gendarme de fer - Tough Mountie 2019

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Foundation of Stars have joined forces to create obstacle courses very similar to those faced by RCMP officers when they train! During the event, you will get to complete various challenges and see how you measure up to real RCMP officers! Challenges include donning anti-riot gear, shooting, scaling a 6-foot wall and more! Are you ready to give it a go?

During this 2nd edition of the event, participants will be able to choose among 4 different courses:

  • The commanding officer: a 10-km course for die-hard fans always ready to conquer new challenges. Pit yourself against this new course’s 50 obstacles that will call upon your physical and mental strength!
  • The sergeant: a 5-km course with 25 obstacles and 6 separate “starts” (waves). At the time of registration, you will have the opportunity of selecting the wave that best suits you: competitive, 911, university, high school, corporate or general public.
  • The corporal: a 3-km course with 20 obstacles and 5 separate “starts” (waves). Select the wave that is most suitable: university, high school, corporate or general public. competitive, 911, university, high school, corporate or general public.
