- $35 for 5K mud run entry for one ($50 value)
The Rugged RockMan 5K mud run takes place on Saturday, September 19, 2015. Each entry includes an event t-shirt and a chicken dinner.
Mud covers the 5K Rugged RockMan course, but that's only the first of the challenges racers will face. Soon enough they'll encounter tire runs, inclined walls, and more than a dozen other obstacles standing between them and the finish line. As if that weren't enough, drill sergeants dot the course, pushing racers to complete burpees and other military-style challenges.
Still, the race isn't as serious as it may sound. Organizers see it as an alternative to "tough guy" mud runs that are less interested in promoting fun than in dishing out punishment. That's why they encourage racers to dress up in costumes, and it's also why they provide music and food at the race's end.
