Due to an increase in email volume within 24 hours of the event, we’ll do our best to respond to all requests; however we cannot guarantee a response before Saturday’s race. With that said, our most frequent pre-race questions and answers can be found in the Event Guide as well as this document.


50% FESTIVAL + 50% MUD RUN = 100% AWESOME!

Rugged Maniac is like recess for grown-ups, except our playground has a 3-story water slide, trampolines, and a fire jump, and there’s a huge festival right in the middle of everything with a DJ and plenty of beer! Sounds amazing, right?! Here’s how it works:

THE FESTIVAL

The 5,000-person party starts at 8:30 a.m. with a DJ on the main stage, booths giving away free stuff, all kinds of interactive games (dance-offs, stein-hoisting, pie-eating…), and tasty food and beer to keep you fueled all day. The best part? The festival and games are completely FREE, no ticket required, so even your least adventurous friends can join the party!

THE PLAYGROUND

But the real fun happens out on the playground — our 3-mile course packed with 20+ epic obstacles designed to both challenge and thrill Maniacs of all fitness levels, from couch potatoes to marathoners.  The course opens at 9 a.m. but you’ll select a specific time to run when you buy your tickets. If you’re a late sleeper, that means you can wake up at noon, run at 1:45 p.m., and then party the rest of the day!  Or if you’re the competitive type, join the 9 a.m. “Elite Heat” to race other speedsters for a chance to be crowned the winner!

Each time slot is limited to just 200 Maniacs each, so grab your friends and reserve your spot before it sells out!
