The one-day Rugged Maniac 5K challenges participants to a 3-mile course littered with 20 burly obstacles cribbed from Navy SEAL training grounds. Lakewood’s rough terrain welcomes runners with mud-covered obstructions planted throughout forests, fields, motocross tracks, and ski slopes. Test endurance levels while scaling 7-foot high walls, shimmying quickly down a 60-foot waterslide, or mending clothes after run-ins with the course’s piranha sentries. To eliminate runner roadblocks and obstacle waiting lines, groups of 350 runners start in 30-minute waves through out the day. An electronic timing system helps clock each participant’s times as well as alerts officials in case hurdles gain self-awareness.
Post-race, participants chill out at after-party events including live music, grub, and frothy brews. While not invited to the after-party, spectators make their own fun in the festival arena, open for for all-day partying backdropped by concerts, nationally recognized brewskis, and festival fare.
