Calling all Maniacs!

Rugged Maniac is seeking energetic volunteers to assist with the obstacle course and all race day festivities. Volunteers provide support to the thousands of participants as they take on 25+ epic obstacles (fire jumps, water slides, trampolines, and underground tunnels) along a 3-mile course and celebrate in a day-long festival of fun!
