A New Breed of 5K

Tough Mudder 5K SoCal is storming through Lake Elsinore again in 2020 and bringing with it a party so epic you’ll never want it to end. This course with it’s beautiful and rocky lakeside terrain is smack dab in between San Diego and LA, which means no matter where you’re at this is the definitely the hottest shindig around. So crew up and get to Lake Elsinore for the wildest weekend of your year.

3 Miles, 13 Obstacles

Tough Mudder 5K SoCal 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.
