Rugged Maniac (Asheboro, NC)
Looking for your next adventure? How about a day filled with epic obstacles, live bands and plenty of beer? Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race has you covered! Here’s how it works: Sign up for the race and you’ll get a chance to run our 3.1-mile course filled with 20+ obstacles designed to push you to your limits! While you’re waiting for your turn on the course, you’ll get to hang out with thousands of other maniacs in the festival area where you can ride mechanical bulls, play muddy tug-o-war, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, or just hang out and listen to the bands while enjoying some tasty food or beverages. Not only that, but each runner gets a high-quality t-shirt, free professional race photos and a beer (if 21 or over) with their registration!
Ready to be challenged? Our courses feature at least twenty obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over walls up to 20’ high, slide down a 100’ water slide, jump over fire, crawl through tunnels of mud and face a host of other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes! And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 300 maniacs to avoid overcrowding.
In short, Rugged Maniac strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality with our day-long party and award-winning course. That’s why Men’s Journal just named Rugged Maniac one of the best obstacle races in the country.
