Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, the CDC’s recommendation of no events of 50-plus people for the next two months, and the government’s rolling mandate around no public gatherings, we’ve made the decision to reschedule Rugged Maniac Columbus, originally scheduled for May 9th, to a new date of June 27, 2020. The event will remain at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our running community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.

All registered runners will have three choices:

●     Your current registration and any add-on items you purchased (VIP packages, parking passes, Rugged Maniac X, or headbands) will automatically be transferred to the June 27, 2020 Columbus Rugged Maniac. If you choose this option, no action is required on your end; OR

●     If the new date doesn’t fit your schedule, we’ll still mail you your tech tee, finisher’s medal, and race bib! Let us know by filling out this form. If you select this option, you will receive your package within 2-4 weeks to the address your provide in the form. If your package is returned to our office because of an incorrect address we won’t reship it. If you choose this option and you purchased any add-on items with your registration (VIP packages, parking passes, Rugged Maniac X, or headbands), please allow 30 days to see that money returned to the card you used to register for the race; OR

●     You can transfer your current registration and any add-on items you purchased (VIP packages, parking passes, Rugged Maniac X, or headbands) to any other Rugged Maniac event happening in 2020 by clicking here

If you don’t select any option by May 8th, you’ll be automatically moved to the June 27, 2020 Columbus Rugged Maniac.

We also encourage everyone to remain as physically active as safely possible during this time, which is why we’ve created a Virtual Fitness Challenge.

As a thanks for your understanding during these trying times, we’ll send you a special code for a $24 entry to the 2021 Columbus Rugged Maniac once registration opens.

Unfortunately we’ve already put a year’s worth of time and resources into setting up the event, so no refunds will be offered. During this difficult time we appreciate your support and cooperation in this serious health emergency.

On behalf of the Rugged Maniac team, we look forward to running with you later this year!
