- 3 miles/5K
- Mud/Obstacle Race
I have run the Rugged Maniac New England for years now, and always have an amazing time, this race proved to be a very similar experience. Rugged Maniac are my favorite OCR brand since they cater to the widest range in skills and abilities. They have obstacles for everyone and I have taken many OCR, running, and non-running friends alike to their races for everyone to always have a blast and want to return the next year!
They upgraded to nice tech t-shirts this year. You also get a medal and really nice free race photos as always!
Aid stations were at every mile and had plenty of water.
The scenery was just desert, but you don't really run OCR for the scenery anyway.
They had a stage with live interactive entertainment going on. They also had a good amount of food and drinks being sold. They had a mechanical bull, which I tried!
Elevation was pretty easy, but they did add some in so it wasn't just flat desert which was nice!
Parking was really easy since it was at a motocross venue. The only thing was it got a bit crazy leaving if you had a heat toward the end of the event.
The Rugged Maniac's race management is one of my absolute favorites. They put on amazing races and are always kind and helpful when you need. I was late for my heat (by my own fault) and the changed my time quickly with no questions ask, at no cost.
