Prove your rugged, maniacal mettle at the Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race, named one of the best obstacle races in the country by Men's Journal, that covers 3.1 miles, 20 obstacles (including a 100 foot slide and 20 foot climbing walls), and terrain that takes a toll.
Slog through mud pits, toil through tires, and brave a swinging pendulum as you make your way to the end of this gauntlet of glory. But the frenzy doesn't end at the finish line. At the post-race festival, the first beer's on the race (if you make it to the end, you've earned it) but the real draw is the kid-style fun that's just your size. From adult bounce houses to a mechanical bull to live music, there's plenty to keep you and all those other maniacs moving despite your tired muscles. Best of all, you'll finally get to wear a hard-won mantle of mud and the moniker "maniac" as badges of pride - not just signs of mental instability.
