Are you ready to let loose and get wild? You'll do just that in the Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race Series. Start and end your race in a day-long festival with drinks, music, games, and a mechanical bull. Then, once you start, you'll embark on a course over 3 miles and more than 20 obstacles of pure insanity. Run, jump, shimmy, and slide through challenges such as fire jumps, trampolines, ropes, tunnels, and plenty of mud. Once you cartwheel across the finish line, you maniac you, a party awaits with an ice cold beer (21+ of course), finisher's medal, beach volleyball, contests, and endless fist bumps. So drop the hum drum, and prepare to conquer the epic challenge of a lifetime!

  • Parking: $10 per car (online) | $15 per car (on site)
  • Bring a towel, a change of clothes (including shoes or flip flops), sunscreen, water, a plastic bag to put your muddy clothes in, and a folding chair or blanket to sit on

  • Racers of legal age will get 2 wristbands: one to verify that your ID has been checked and the other to be redeemed for one free beer
  • There will be 2 water stations for racers throughout the course and again at the finish line, and there will also be oranges and bananas

All was good until after the purchase, the fine print informed me that I had to run my heat at a specified time. But the price saved me quite a few $

The eveent was great. I received a discount on my tickets making it 2 for 90 basically. I cannot see spending 89 per ticket on the event, but with the deal i was satisfied with everything.
