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 Florida, originally scheduled for April 18th, to a new date of October 31st. The event will remain at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. 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 October 31, 2020 Florida 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 in 2-4 weeks to the address you 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 April 17th, you’ll be automatically moved to the October 31, 2020 Florida 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 in the near future for a $24 entry to the 2021 Florida Rugged Maniac.

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!
