Gendarme de fer - Tough Mountie 2019
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Foundation of Stars have joined forces to create four obstacle courses very similar to those faced by RCMP officers when they train! The challenge will for a second consecutive year be held at Percival-Molson Stadium and Mount-Royal Park, October 13th, 2019.
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?
For this 2nd edition of the event, we are adding a yet more difficult challenge: a 10-km obstacle course! If you are a fan of obstacle courses, always ready to conquer new challenges, this commanding officer challenge is for you! See how you fare on the 10-km course with its 50 obstacles that will call on both your physical skills and mental strength. You will receive the support and encouragement of over 200 volunteers at the site, but beware... for every obstacle you fail to conquer, you will have to complete a series of burpees. So athletes, sports enthusiasts and those of you with a competitive streak, come and give our latest course a go!
3 other courses are also offered:
- 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 (speed, penalty for all obstacles not conquered), 911 (policemen, firemen, military personnel, etc.), 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: (policemen, firemen, military personnel, etc.), university, high school, corporate or general public.
- The junior constable: a true RCMP challenge over a 1-km course, designed for children under 12 years of age. The perfect opportunity for youngsters to excel for a good cause!
There are challenges for participants at every level: the not-so athletic, families, students and youngsters will all find suitable courses or “starts”.
You can participate on an individual basis or as part of a team. Don't wait anymore, assemble your team and go for an outstanding experience!
Go above and beyond not only physically... help the Foundation of Stars fulfil its mission by participating in a fund-raising effort. All of the funds thus gathered will go to support pediatric research, and the individuals and teams who raise the most money will receive a reward!
For team registrations (5 people or more):
Each team member must register individually, and personally complete and sign the medical questionnaire and waiver. The registration process includes 5 steps: creation of an account, registration form, waiver, individual/team donation page and payment. During the “individual/team donation” step, you will have the option of creating a team (of which you will be the captain), joining an existing team or completing your registration as an individual.
Creating a team automatically generates a donation page for your team, after which you can set your objective and begin to focus on completing this challenge!
Your registration includes:
- a timing chip
- water supply points along the course
- refreshments and snacks at the finish line
- a medal and …an unforgettable experience!
- event T-shirt

The Foundation of Stars and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have developed over time a tightly-knit collaboration to carry out various fundraising activities. The RCMP’s traditional red garb is one of the most widely recognized uniforms in the world; by extension, the Tough Mountie challenge provides your company with an opportunity to be associated with one of the strongest and most respected brands in Canada.
The money raised during the Tough Mountie challenge will be remitted to the Foundation of Stars. The Foundation of Stars has for the past 41 years had a singular mission: funding pediatric research as a means of protecting, promoting and improving the health and well-being of children and adolescents.
