Course Description:

Picture this: You arrive at Virginia Motorsports Park with a carload of your most adventurous friends. As you step out you notice the people around you admiring your group’s coordinated “Avengers-in-bathing-suits” costumes and your on-point Hulk-green body paint. In the festival, people are already riding the mechanical bull and playing beach volleyball (Rugged Maniac is definitely more than just a mud run), but you’re more interested in the stein-hoisting contest on the main stage. You make a note to sign up for that and the pie-eating contest after you run. You see obstacles in the distance – mud-covered people jumping over fire, bouncing on trampolines, rocketing down a huge water slide – and your surging excitement confirms what you already knew: Today is going to be awesome…

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 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!
Here’s how it works: Register for the race and you’ll get a chance to run our 3-mile course where you’ll climb towers of shipping containers, rocket down a massive water slide, crawl through underground tunnels, leap over fire and experience some BIG new obstacles (trampolines?!)! As if that weren’t awesome enough, before and after you run you’ll get to party with thousands of other maniacs in our day-long festival where you can ride mechanical bulls, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, dance your butt off in the foam pit and enjoy lots of new games and activities! Plus, beer will be flowing from our friends at Harpoon Brewery so be sure to snag one (or two) while you enjoy an awesome day outdoors!

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:

Awards are available for:

  • Top Overall Finisher
  • Top 3 female finishers
  • Top 3 male finishers
  • Top racer over 55
  • Top racer under 18

Spectators:

Free! A spectator ticket gives you access to the viewing areas on the course and the festival area, which features live music, beer, food, vendors and festival games!

Parking:

$10 per car online in advance, $15 onsite

Post Party:

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 (mechanical bulls, 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!

Other:

You won't get a private shower with hot water, but we'll have a public hose-off station with nice cold water for you after you run. Our system has been redesigned to accomodate our crowds, but with over 5,000 runners at each event, lines are unavoidable, especially if people decide to clean their shoes, wash their hair and give their dog a bath while others are waiting. Here's a tip: bring a gallon of water with you and skip the rinse-off station. You'll look like a genius to everyone else standing in line with mud in their eye!
You are welcome to don any kind of footwear you want. However, you assume the risk of any injuries that result from your decision to do so. Rugged Races LLC does not guarantee that the course will be free of sharp objects, including rocks, splinters, pinecones, glass, nails, knives, swords, chainsaws or anything else whatsoever.
Water obstacles are no more than 4 feet deep
You're free to go around any obstacles you can't get over or don't want to do, but you won't be eligible to win based on ime

Rugged Maniac no longers offers official timing at their event. Run in the first wave if you want to measure yourself up!

Barefoot running is allowed, but you assume the risk of any injuries
Racers must be at least 14 years old.
Please arrive at least 1.5 hours before your wave starts. This gives you enough time to park, stretch, hydrate, check-in, etc. If you miss your start time and the race is a sellout, you won't be able to run.

Team:

Teams are allowed, but team times are not recorded. All racers are timed individually
