The one-day Rugged Maniac 5K challenges participants to a 3-mile course littered with 14 burly obstacles cribbed from Navy SEAL training grounds. Arizona Cycle Park’s rough terrain welcomes runners with mud-covered obstructions planted throughout its forests, fields, and motocross tracks. Test endurance levels while scaling 7-foot-high walls, shimmying quickly down a high-speed 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 throughout the day. An electronic timing system helps clock each participant’s times and 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 all-day partying backdropped by concerts, nationally recognized brewskis, and festival fare.

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 towering walls, 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.
