Rugged Maniac is a 5K (3.1 mile) obstacle course race that combines the most rugged terrain and burly obstacles to allow those with a sense of adventure to define themselves, then bask in glory at a rocking after party with great bands, good food and plenty of beer!
Each Rugged Maniac features at least twenty obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These arenít the pop-up kiddie obstacles youíll see at other races. Youíll climb over walls up to 12 high, crawl through mud under barbed wire, slide down a 50 water slide, jump over fire, and face many other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes!
Unlike other races, we wonít run you around a golf course or parking lot and proclaim it rugged. We wonít make you wait in ridiculous lines mid-course and pretend youíve been challenged. Instead, we offer a truly challenging and well-organized course that beats all others. But you donít have to take our word for it. Check out what people are saying about us on Facebook.


Course Description
Rugged Maniac is returning to Virginia to host the muddiest 2-day event in the country! The event will take place at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, Virginia on May 4th and 5th. The course will have several hills, walls, cargo climbs, and of course mud pits! First time mud-runners will be challenged to finish the course while those looking to truly conquer the Rugged Maniac will be encouraged to run in the elite heat and race for the fastest time possible!

Post Race Activities
The fun wonít stop at the finish line though, as our post-race festival area will feature live bands, food, and of course plenty of beer! There will also be a mechanical bull, tug-of-war mud pit, and inflatable obstacle course for the mini-maniacs! Registration for the race can be done online on our website at www.ruggedmaniac.com.

Still using GU, PowerGel or Clif SHOT?
See why athletes are making the switch to e-Gel, the only Electrolyte Energy Gel. Get 230 mg Sodium, 85 mg Potassium and more complex carbs than any other gel.
