Course Description:

This five kilometer course traverses some of the most rugged terrain southern California has to offer, including a mountain! We’ve amped it up with barbed wire, fire, tunnels, mud pits, pools of water, barricades, cargo nets, scrambles, swinging pendulums and a host of other obstacles that make this course one rugged gauntlet of glory!
Each Rugged Maniac features 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 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!

Aid Stations:

We provide water at one station halfway through the course and again at the finish line. We don't provide water to spectators or in the festival area generally. Water and other beverages will be available for purchase from vendors, but you can also bring in your own non-alcoholic beverages (no glass bottles).


Awards are available for:

  • Top Overall Finisher
  • Top 3 female finishers
  • Top 3 male finishers
  • Top racer over 55
  • Top racer under 18
  • Most rugged team (based on presence and attitude)
