About

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

-Theodore Roosevelt

Looking for your next adventure? How about a day filled with epic obstacles, rockin' music and plenty of beer? Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race has you covered! Here's how it works: Sign up for the race and you'll get a chance to run our 3.1-mile course filled with 25+ obstacles designed to push you to your limits! While you're waiting for your turn on the course, you'll get to hang out with thousands of other maniacs in the festival area where you can ride mechanical bulls, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, or just rock out to the latest tunes while enjoying some tasty food or beverages. Not only that, but each runner gets a high-quality t-shirt, free professional race photos and a beer (if 21 or over) with their registration!

Ready to be challenged? Our courses feature at least 25 obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over towers of stacked shipping containers, rocket down a 100’ water slide, jump over fire, crawl through underground tunnels and face a host of other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes! And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 300 maniacs to avoid overcrowding.  

In short, Rugged Maniac strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality with our day-long party and award-winning course. That's why Men's Journal named Rugged Maniac one of the best obstacle races in the country. Want more reviews? Check out what people are saying about us on Facebook.
