$34 for Entry for One in Rugged Maniac 5K (Up to $68 Value)
The 5K Rugged Maniac obstacle-course race takes place Saturday, November 17, at the Firebird International Raceway in Chandler. The first wave of runners takes off at 9 a.m.; participants should arrive about 90 minutes before their assigned wave. The race features mud crawls, a 40-foot water slide, and a mystery challenge that might take the form of anything from leaping over a fire pit to a grueling endurance tea party. The event also includes a day-long festival, featuring live music along with games such as mechanical bulls and adult bounce-houses.
Every year, enterprising athletes across the nation line up with courage beyond reason for the 5K Rugged Maniac obstacle-course race. Fiery hurdles, 12-foot climbing walls, and barbed-wire-blanketed mud pits await those indomitable souls, who garb themselves in glory, grit, and sometimes banana costumes. Whether going it alone or collaborating as a team, finishing racers are rewarded with a banquet of hot food and cold beer, a commemorative T-shirt, and the ability to make muddy tires the world over cower in fear.

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.
