Runners, thrill seekers, and adventurous spirits unite! If any of these apply to you, or you have an interest in working toward a fun, yet challenging fitness goal, you’re meant to complete the Rugged Maniac. It’s so much more than an average 5k.
What’s Rugged Maniac?
Rugged Maniac is an exciting and messy race held in various locations around the United States and Canada. It features a 5K course with 25 daring obstacles along the way to keep it incredibly interesting. Get your mess on while climbing the Blobstacle, crawling under the Dragnet, taking a Leap of Faith, and so much more. Bonus: you get to support the American Cancer Society.
At the end—once you’re incredibly wet, muddy, and proud—you’ll get a celebratory t-shirt, medal, and beer (if old enough!). Plus a party. That’s right: There’s a day-long festival happening while waves of runners hit the course! Ride mechanical bulls, challenge friends to eating and drinking contests, and burn more calories while dancing the day away to the tunes coming from a DJ on the main stage.
Anyone Can Be a Maniac
Runners of all ages (14+) and abilities have fun at this race. But make no mistake: it’s work to complete the thrilling course. The obstacles and 3-mile course are designed to challenge you as well as entertain you, so they’re likely a lot more fun if you’re physically ready! That’s why Anytime Fitness is the Official Fitness Club of Rugged Maniac.
We’ve created a special four-week training program designed to improve your strength, speed, and endurance so you can begin acquiring those ninja-level skills needed to be a true Rugged Maniac. (Never fear: If an obstacle looks too hard or unsafe for your ability level, you can skip it—you just remove yourself from placing in official results.) Run at your own risk—and pace! This is supposed to be fun, after all.
