A New Breed of 5K

Tough Mudder 5K Philly at Plantation Field is much more than just a fun run. TMHQ doesn’t half-ass; it’s whole ass or no ass at all, which is why we’re bringing the toughest, coolest, obstacle crushin’-est 5K mud run in the world back to the beautiful Brandywine Valley. With plenty of trees and grassy fields it's the perfect spot to experience the new breed of 5K. Get ready for the best obstacles in the industry, and the best weekend of your year.

3 Miles, 13 Obstacles

Tough Mudder 5K is pulling out all the stops for an epic bash so fun you’ll have no choice but to have the time of your life. It all starts and ends in Mudder Village with killer live entertainment, epic games and challenges, authentic local food, and a never ending-supply of Mudder Nation camaraderie. After you’re done crushing the course, the good times keep rolling with a frosty cold finisher beer and your new best friends from course.
