Welcome to race #1 of the Bulldog Challenge Series.

A quad-burning, glute searing and ego breaking 10k among the red rocks of Topanga. LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!

Tucked away in magnificent Red Rock Canyon, Topanga, this hidden gem replaces the Tough Topanga for 2024. Bringing the Topanga spirit, this tough course features the same distance and vertical gain – it has it all from steep uphills, epic views, a descent to the finish like no other, and even an incredible singletrack section!

The 2024 Red Rock Rumble offers a winner takes all cash prize, a “Fastest Final Mile” cash bonus, and the fastest “Local Legend” award for Topanga’s local runners!! This event also features a Hiker’s Delight, a non-timed, early start directly to the summit.

Kids, get ready to race!! The 1/2-mile course for the little ones shares the start and finish of the 10k course, but turns around at the Red Rock Caves. The 1.5-mile course for the young teens climbs a super fun winding singletrack to the top of a red rock cliff before running down to the finish chute.

Finisher medals, overall winners and age group awards are handcrafted by local artists, the shirts are soft, a sweet design, and fit specific to women and men.

Sip some coffee before the start, enjoy a hard-earned breakfast after the race, check out the post-race festival, or make runner friends in the beer garden over your race adventures. There’ll be plenty of breakfast and places to sit for everyone. Stick around for the awards ceremony honoring the fastest runners!
