Published on June 24, 2015 by in News

07/25/2015 to 07/25/2015 –

Presented by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro of American Gladiator fame. The Gladiator returns to the place where the MUDNESS all started for the SIXTH annual Gladiator Rock’n Run. We’re talking about the OC baby!

Brand new location. Same awesome event.

Sign up for the mudslinging at Gladiator and you’ll run, slide, jump and crawl your way through piles of slop so thick and dark, you’ll think you’ve wormed you way back into the comfort of your mother’s womb.
But Gladiator is more than just mud. Prepare yourself for 5 kilometers of collective scampering as you bound over walls, conquer the Beast and leap fire on your way to Gladiator Glory at the finish line. Just wait until you meet the Tube-a-saurous!

After the event you’ll revive your weary, mud-splattered soul with beer, food, ample live music and Gladiator games as you finish the day in epic OC fashion.

Please use the code IRVINE20 for 20% off the Orange County Race.
