A New Breed of 5K
We’re bringing the party, and the after-party to La la land in 2019. Tough Mudder 5K Los Angeles is popping off just an hour outside the city at Glen Helen Raceway. All the scenic vistas and rolling hills on this epic course prove the left coast is the definitely the best coast. No headshots, no auditions, just a muddy, obstacle packed red carpet bash for you and your crew to crush.
3 Miles, 13 Obstacles
This ain’t your grand-daddy’s fun run. Tough Mudder 5K Los Angeles is 3 miles of best-in-class obstacles, designed and selected by our crew of genius engineers for max levels of fun and intense teamwork. None does it better than our most iconic obstacle, Everest 2.0, a 13' quarter pipe with a curved top that requires real teamwork to conquer. Bust through the finish line and the party keeps going. Grab a frosty cold beer, listen to music, hang with your new best friends from course, and soak in that sweet first taste of Tough Mudder.
Epic action. Legendary party.
