Adventure Race and Music Festival. 5K, 14+ serious obstacles, live music, food and beer!

Not for the faint of heart, frail of body, or weak of mind, the Rugged Maniac 5K was designed with the assistance of Navy SEALs* to push your limits and determine how rugged you truly are.

Ask someone who has run one - Rugged Maniac is the most challenging 5K obstacle race on the planet!

This five kilometer course loops through the woods and a motocross track. That’s right, a motocross track, built for dirt bikes, and we’ve amped it up with barbed wire, fire, tunnels, mud pits, pools of water, barricades, cargo nets, scrambles, swinging pendulums, and a host of other obstacles that make this course one rugged gauntlet of glory. When it’s all done, you will have the right to declare “I am a Rugged Maniac” … and you will have a t-shirt bearing this quote to prove it. So come on out, push your limits and then celebrate with live music, food, beer, fun natured contests, friends and other likeminded maniacs. We will also have a pee-wee course available for children under 13 (no preregistration necessary).
