North Carolina

Rugged Maniac is returning to North Carolina on May 16th with a BRAND NEW VENUE – Rockingham Dragway!  That’s right.  No more buses or shuttles – all parking is now right on site!  Get ready for another round of 25 epic obstacles, 3 fun miles and 1 rockin’ party!  You’ll climb towers of stacked shipping containers, crawl through underground tunnels of mud, rocket down a massive water slide and experience a lot of BIG new surprises (trampolines?!)!  As if that weren’t awesome enough, before and after you run you’ll get to party with thousands of other maniacs in our day-long festival, which includes mechanical bulls, adult bounce houses, a foam dance pit, and lots of new games and activities!  Beer will be flowing from our friends at Harpoon Brewery so be sure to snag one (or two) while you enjoy an awesome day outdoors!  So what are you waiting for?  Grab your friends and register now before your preferred start time sells out!
