Tough Mudder Half SoCal is back again, and don’t let the location fool you; this course is anything but a laidback loaf in the mud. No way, not at Lake Elsinore Diamond and not in 2018, when we’re amping up the awesome and pushing wild Mudders like you to their very best. We’ve already been at it for the past two seasons in the cozy confines of Lake Elsinore, and we can’t wait for a third run in the mud. Located directly off I-15 smack dab in between Los Angeles and San Diego, the course at Tough Mudder Half SoCal is primed and ready to run wilder than wild this season. Are you?
