Looking for adventure? How about a day filled with 25 epic obstacles, a crazy party, and plenty of beer? Rugged Maniac Obstacle Race has you covered! Here's how it works: Sign up for the race and you'll run our 3-mile course where you'll climb towers of shipping containers, rocket down a 50′ water slide, bounce on trampolines, jump over fire, and more!

Before and after your 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, and dance your butt off in the festival and enjoy lots of new games and activities. As if that wasn't awesome enough, you also get a high-quality t-shirt, an awesome medal, free professional race photos, and a beer (if of legal drinking age) with your registration!

Unlike the other guys, we don't nickel and dime you with ‘insurance' and ‘processing' fees that add $30 or more to your registration cost. You'll pay the price listed on the event page plus any tax required by the man. That's it. So what are you waiting for? Reserve your preferred start
time today!

One of the best all around mud runs

Jan 30, 2013 by Alexis Cooke

the phoenix event was totally awesome!!! this was my 4th mud race and i thought it was the best one i had been too so far. the obstacles were challenging and well placed over all the course and the mud pits were really filthy! my fav part of the event tho was the afterparty, awesome music and beer with lots of food vendors. my friends and i ran in the 9:30 wave and didnt end up leaving until they shut down around 5:30. im a rugged maniac!


Good run if you just want to do it.

Nov 01, 2012 by Bud Bartnik

This run was very brutal, which I enjoyed. This is a pro... Now the cons... No enough or lack of photographers. We were only in 1 picture hopping over fire (Which looked terrible). They didnt even get any pictures of my girlfriends son. We didnt even have any pictures of crossing the finish line. They started packing up at about 2 pm before the last of the runners at 3 pm even started.

So if you want to run the race just to say you did it...Cool... In my opinion the Warrior dash was easier but at least we got pictures, medal and crappy viking hat.

For the money the Rugged Maniac was asking to run is not worth just running the race.


Complete blast

Oct 30, 2012 by Mike Lancaster

This was my first mud run and all I knew about it was what I saw on the website. It looked like a lot of fun and a good challenge for a guy that had just lost ninety pounds. I wanted to push my new found fitness and prove to myself that I am still somewhat an athlete. It was a challenging course, (ski slope) the hills were insane. The weather in Kansas City this time of year can be 75 to 25. Fortunately it was a balmy 44 degrees (sarcasm) which made the course even more of a challenge. Getting into water that cold takes a little bit of nerve. My wife and I finished together and we both agreed we have not had that much fun in a long time. Thank you Rugged Maniac!!


So Much Fun!

Oct 22, 2012 by Mindi Fried

This was my first OCR, and I had a complete and total blast. I was VERY nervous going into it, but I trained for the event several months, mostly so I could run any distance.

The course itself was on a motor cross track, which had ups and downs, but for a first timer, way more manageable than, say, a ski slope! I found the obstacles occasionally challenging, but the only one that caused me to hesitate was jumping over fire. Probably because I actually stopped to think about it, I psyched myself out a little bit. The rest of the obstacles were very approachable and achievable by a beginner obstacle course racer. The walls had a step built in that you could use if you were unable to just jump and pull yourself up to the top.

That said, my one complaint is that the steps on just about everything were set very far apart. My much taller friend found it challenging, and being short, made it even more difficult. The one that sticks out was the one where you are stepping from stump to stump. A friend of mine gave me a hand, it would have been nice if one of the rows of stumps was set slightly closer together. Without my friend's help, I would have had to leap from one mud covered stump to the next, which sounds horrifically dangerous!

In the middle of the course there was a slide - which, I'll be honest, I had a blast with. I did see a lot of injuries from the slide, however (mostly bruises and scrapes), and one of my friends who is more familiar with OCR's said it was needlessly dangerous, because it was the kind of thing that you couldn't do safely by training for it or being prepared. Basically, through most of the slide, you were completely out of control, and just had to go with the flow. Lots of feet hitting into heads and backs as a result.

Overall, it was a great introduction to OCR's and I'm already signed up for two more. I'm also signed up to do the RM next year again - all of us on my team are.
