Adding mud can make a race more fun, while taking mud away can punish a pig for failing to symbolize the empty promises of communism. Just add mud with this Groupon.
$24 for Obstacle-Race Entry (Up to $53 Value)
On Saturday, October 26, athletes flood Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race’s course in 300-person waves that depart every 30 minutes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Kansas City course boasts 18 taxing obstacles, from tunnels deluged with muddy water to a behemoth Suicide Slide. Participants wade through mud on hands and knees, narrowly escaping the prickly caress of barbed wire before bumbling between a jungle of hanging tires and scrambling up the final, steep, muddy incline. Registration includes a T-shirt, a beer (for those 21 and older), and fresh fruit at the finish line. Purchasing this deal does not register you for the race; online registration required at www.ruggedmaniac.com before 4/5/13.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race
Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race sends runners into an obstacle-filled odyssey of muddy endurance. The 5-kilometer course features more than epic 25 obstacles, with participants scaling towers of stacked shipping containers, crawling through underground tunnels, and leaping over fire. After the race, live music and cold beer invite triumphant runners to unwind. Those with excess energy can head over to even more kinetic activities such as mechanical bull riding, beach volleyball, and adult-sized bounce houses.
