Tough Mudder and Contiki Team Up to Offer Sweepstakes Giveaway for an Adventure-Filled Weekend

March 15, 2022

The social travel operators and endurance event specialists have joined forces to announce two exclusive active adventures in the USA

BOSTON, Mass. (March 15, 2022)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Contiki, the social travel operator, has teamed up with Tough Mudder, the global leader in obstacle course adventures, to host a sweepstakes giveaway for an adventure-filled weekend. Running today through April 5, 2022, the sweepstakes offers a chance for you and a friend to win a spot on an active adventure trip.

The sweepstakes is part of a new collaboration between Contiki and Tough Mudder to elevate the weekend experience by exploring local destinations and making unique connections and lifelong friends. So, with thrill-seeking adventurers ready to get back out into the world, Contiki and Tough Mudder are offering two unique experiences in 2022:

  • Nashville (June 25 – 29, 2022): After conquering the Tough Mudder event, travelers can hike, learn how to distill whiskey, and sleep under the stars in deluxe canvas tents. With an on-site massage therapist, there’s plenty of time for much-deserved R&R while Dollywood Theme Park is an option for the thrill-seekers.
  • Sonoma (August 27 – 31, 2022): Travelers can celebrate tackling their Tough Mudder in a region of word-class wine and Yosemite National Park. Options include relaxing at the lake-side accommodation, enjoying dinner at a local winery or soaring over Sonoma by balloon. There’s also a hike in Yosemite, for those wanting a (less muddy) connection with nature.

With its 5K, 10K and 15K events, Tough Mudder offers distances for every adventure level. Travelers will have the opportunity to select the distance that’s the best fit for them.

Rachel Storey, Contiki’s head of brand partnerships said, “we’re so excited to kick off our partnership with Tough Mudder. Our brand values are such a natural fit: adventure, friendships, teamwork, getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things. We’re looking forward to launching these two departures in the US, with hopefully more to come soon.”

“Adventure doesn’t stop at the finish line of a Tough Mudder weekend, and Contiki is the perfect partner to help spread this message,” said Tough Mudder CEO Kyle McLaughlin. “Our obstacle courses are best done with others, the same ethos that Contiki encourages on their departures. We are thrilled to be blending the two platforms to offer adventure seekers the experience of a lifetime, outside of your traditional weekend.”
