$39 for Entry to the Temecula Mud Run 5K on Saturday, April 20 (Up to $79 Value)
The Temecula Fun Mud Run pits runners against a 5K obstacle course fraught with hills, walls, slippery mud mounds, tunnel crawls, and a pond crossing at Galway Downs. Each contestant gets a complimentary event T-shirt; however, fun team and individual costumes are encouraged. This Groupon also includes a drink after the race.
Runners depart in waves every 20 minutes beginning at 9 a.m., and onsite are available to rinse off after the race. There is a $10 fee for parking that is not included in this Groupon.
It’s simple enough to run three miles around your neighborhood, but why do that when a Healthy Races run could potentially involve a giant inflatable killer whale, mud-soaked ballerinas, or a mischievous leprechaun? Healthy Races injects each of its events with a crucial ingredient that is sadly all-to-often missing from exercise: fun. Though the company's events change based on the season, it has previously held mud runs, glow stick highlighter runs, Oktoberfest beer runs, and St. Patrick's Day–themed 5Ks.
