About Rugged Maniac
Rugged Maniac is another addition to the list of obstacle race courses that are rapidly growing in popularity.  These events combine endurance running with challenging, often team based, obstacles that require a wide variety of fitness and strength.
These races are competitive but also have a fun party vibe to them with all contestants celebrating with food and drinks upon completion of the race.  The events are scheduled all over the country in different varying cities.

How Does it Work?

The Rugged Maniac race is a 3 mile course featuring 25 obstacles such as muddy crawls, tough climbs, and long slides.  The specifics may vary based on the local features of each event.  Depending on your level of physical fitness the course should take between 30-60 minutes to compete with the winners coming in around the 20 minute mark.
You can choose to run the race individually or as part of a team.  Every 15 minutes a wave of runners starts the course, the most competitive slots are early in the morning starting at 9am and often sell out.
You have the option of running the race recreationally or competitively, those racing for results will be given RFID chips that will keep track of their race times for official records and chances to win.


The prices vary per location and also depend on when you register with most races costing between $70-$90 and $100 for day of tickets.  There are no hidden fees and the only extra will be taxes based on the state you’re in.
Rugged Maniac also gives people the option to earn entry into races through volunteering.  By working either the AM or PM shift you can get entry into the race you’re working or a future event.  These spots fill up very quickly so if you’re interested register as early as possible.
It’s important to note that there are no refunds issued once you have registered, and the races will go on even through bad weather.
