Tough Mudder is an endurance race where participants overcome an obstacle course of 10–12 miles (16–19 km). The obstacles include fire, water, electricity, and heights. Many of the barriers are designed to enhance teamwork. In Los Angeles, Tough Mudder offers a 5K and 8-10-mi Classic course at Tejon Ranch. Participants will have to run uphill, cross muddy waters, and overcome tough obstacles on their way. Large mud-soaked rolling hills and beautiful views will ensure all participants in their ability to challenge themselves and push their limits while also having some fun. Spectators are required to purchase a ticket to view this event.
It was 2010 when Tough Mudder was held in the US for the first time. It was created by Will Dean, a former counter-terrorism officer, and Guy Livingstone, both British who live in New York City. Over 3 million people worldwide have participated in Tough Mudder events. There are over 50 races in seven countries, including Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.
