A New Breed of 5K
The dirty truth is - nobody knows how to party like Virginia Mudders. That’s why Tough Mudder 5K Virginia at Camp Snyder is gonna be the most epic bash of the year. Just one hour from Washington D.C. you and your crew will take in the mud-soaked trails and expansive open fields before you go wild at the Mudder Village Festival.
3 Miles, 13 Iconic Tough Mudder Obstacles
Tough Mudder 5K Virginia is 3 miles of best-in-class obstacles, designed for intense teamwork and fun. None does it better than our most iconic obstacle, Everest 2.0, a 13' quarterpipe with 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.
