OCR fanatics in Arizona are lucky enough to have the Rugged Maniac come into town twice a year. The first Arizona Rugged of the 2019 race season was held April 6th at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler.

Twice a year F.I.T. Challenge hosts a small race in Rhode Island. November 17th at Diamond Hill State Park I had the pleasure of attending my 1st F.I.T. Challenge race. F.I.T. has won and been a top contender for many Mud Run Guide best of awards the last few years which made me very excited to see what all the talk was about.
Rugged Maniac X is for those obstacle course racing athletes who feel "one lap is never enough". For those who want to really challenge themselves on race day. Kathleen Davis tackles Rugged Maniac X for the first time in Pennsylvania.

It's billed as the 'Rumble at the Rose Bowl'. Every year for the past seven years, Dan 'Nitro' Clark (of American Gladiator fame) brings his Gladiator Rock 'N Run to Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and I've had the pleasure of participating for the last three. Always a fun event, Dan strives to make sure the participants always have a good time, and there's a fun, family atmosphere at the venue. This year was no exception.
