With major events returning to Northern California in 2021, one is guaranteed to challenge every muscle in your body. And get you a little muddy in the process.
Tough Mudder is returning to NorCal on August 28-29 at the Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California. The 2-day event will include a classic, 5K and kid’s courses. Each event will include a timed start, free headband, free shirt and a post race drink.
The Tough Mudder classic course has made these mud runs famous across the globe. This year’s NorCal event will include 25 obstacles over a 10-mile course, including the Arctic Enema, Mudderhorn and Electroshock Therapy. The 5K event will include 13 obstacles that you would see on the classic course, leaving out difficult challenges like Electroshock Therapy and Mud Mile. The kid’s course will allow children 5-12 to take on their own version of the legendary Tough Mudder course and learn the benefits of teamwork, overcoming obstacles and, of course, getting really really muddy.
“NorCal is one of our most scenic and popular destinations and we’re thrilled to be returning this year with more than ever,” said Rabia Qari, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Tough Mudder, Inc. “Our new 5K distance has been a hit all season long and really opens the event to participants of all experience levels. We think our NorCal Mudders are really going to enjoy it.”
Tough Mudder has become the premiere mud run across the globe, with 5 million participants raising more than $15 million for the Wounded Warrior Project, which offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001. The event includes a 25 percent discount for military veterans and first responders.
