A New Breed of 5K
Tough Mudder 5K Seattle is invading the legendary Palmer Coking Coal Co yet again, so strap for an all-out epic bash you don't wanna miss. Just 40 minutes from Seattle, you and your crew are gonna roll over open fields, down deep gravel pits, through extensive wooded trails, scramble to the top of a 100-year old coal slag and get down at a shindig bigger, and bolder than Mt Rainier itself.
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.
