    Rugged Maniac – Pheonix (Fall)

    10710 W Camelback Rd, Glendale, AZ 85307, USAView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    You could spend your Saturday running errands or binge-watching TV, but wouldnt it be more fun to do something absolutely insane with your friends?!

    Picture this: You arrive on November 2nd with a carload of your most adventurous friends. As you step out you notice the people around you admiring your groups coordinated Avengers-in-bathing-suits costumes and your on-point Hulk-green body paint. In the festival, people are already riding the mechanical bull and playing beach volleyball (Rugged Maniac is definitely more than just a mud run), but youre more interested in the stein-hoisting contest on the main stage. You make a note to sign up for that and the pie-eating contest after you run. You see obstacles in the distance mud-covered people jumping over fire, bouncing on trampolines, rocketing down a huge water slide and your surging excitement confirms what you already knew: Today is going to be awesome!

    Stop daydreaming. Grab your friends and get your tickets now!

    • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

      Race expo had lots of goodies and reasonably priced items. Race day I was bussed to start area. Gear bags were secured by National Guard volunteers. Free pre-race massages and other items. Race was chip timed and there were pacers for the half which was good since my Garmin died. The course was paved with multiple roller hills but no huge inclines (my perspective). All intersections were closed and water Gatorade stops were every mile. Several first aid stations that I noticed. Drummers, music, great audience. Finish corral was cleared out right away. Finisher Medal given immediately. Medals for each race were different, unique and well designed. Large leaderboards for all races. Computer available to check and take pic of your stats. Place medals for top 3 per age group. Usual snacks at race end. I arrived at 5:30 and had medal and award and headed home by 11:15.I would do this race again.Driving course helped!

    Ironman Arizona

    15 W 5th St, Tempe, AZ 85281, USAView event

    About the event
    From the organiser

    This race stands out as one of the most urban races in North America.

    The race kicks off with a single-loop swim in Tempe Town Lake. The rolling start is just west of the Mill Avenue bridge and begins by heading east. The rectangular course will go just past Rural Road bridge and first turn north and then west all the way back under the Mill Avenue bridges, where another turn south will put athletes on course to head straight back to shore and transition at Tempe Beach Park.

    The relatively flat three-loop course heads out of Tempe and zig-zags out to the Beeline Highway, which gradually climbs approximately 10 miles through the Sonoran Desert to the turnaround just before Shea Boulevard. Athletes then return to Tempe Beach Park to start their second and third laps.

    The run course is flat and spectator-friendly with a few small rollers, as athletes wind their way around Tempe Town Lake and through Papago Park. Athletes should be sure to pack a visor or hat in their T2 bags, as the course offers very little shade.

    • Did the Ironman in 2018

      The Salt River is cold to me, 60 degrees this year. Wore a neoprene cap under my swim cap and also wished I had put on warming cream for my calves which cramped a few times as well as maybe swim booties. I also wore earplugs or else I'd get vertigo out of the water. The sun was in our eyes 2/3 of the way though not a big issue for this course. For the bike course, practice being in aero for long periods because you will be on this course, even possibly near the end of the out section with more elevation. I got uncomfortable for the 3rd o&b and couldn't maintain being aero as much. Run is not flat but no real challenging hills per se. A few of the short "ups" surprised me but nothing I couldn't handle. Be prepared for the long gradual climb on the back end. Also, the dirt sections along the river were uneven and one has to watch your footing. I did like the courses overall and hope to see what I could do another year now that I know.
    • Did the Ironman in 2018

      Well the race is in Arizona and most of the athletes would probably start running around lunch time so expect it to be hot. The course has no shade to so I suggest wear a hat or whatever headwear you're comfortable wearing. The course is well marked too so you dont have to worry about directions.

      Travelled over from the UK for IM Arizona as a final race of the season. Loistically this is a pretty easy with direct flights with BA from LHR into Phoenix, hire cars pretty cheap or there is good transport links into Tempe where the race is held. Roads are easy to drive on, with a multi storey car park within 200m of the race village. This makes the registration process easy and and access on race morning straight forward.

      Swim is in Tempe lake and its cold, with air temps in the single digits it make for a cold swim. Rolling start and easy to navigate with markers every 100m. The biggest issue is the cold and not being able to warm up before the start as this proves a shock to the system other than that the swim has no real standout features.

      T1 is a decent run up but the helpers are awesome with bags handed to you and direct you to the change tent where they pt all the kit in the bag. Top Marks.

      Bike is 3 loops out of the city onto the highway to a turn point. Its fine for the 1st lap but then its dull. The crowd pool themselves at the start/end of the lap by transition in about a 500m stretch then the only people you see are the aid station guys who are again awesome and so helpful.
      Its a lonely 180km as there wasn't any chat on the bikes either which is different to what i have found in Europe and NZ. The roads are also not flat due to the heat cracks so it gets a bit jarring on that 3rd lap.

      T2 has a bike catcher and same as T1 they are great. Cant praise them highly enough.

      Run is 2 laps but a few turnaround points mean you pass transition at 4 miles. Its pretty exposed with little shade throughout and again spectators are in a small section by around transition making the far side of the run lonely. Marshalls & aid stations are great but its nice to see someone at some point. Never had a Long Distance where the crowd is in one spot.

      If you choose this race then prepare for mental games as its a windy bike course, lonely on both bike & run and exposed. I will say the locals are very friendly and the marshals are top notch, on par with NZ & Roth

    • Did the ARR Festivus 15K Race in 2018

      It was a good race all the way around from the people that checked people in to the announcer making it very enjoyable! The course was just 3 5k loops.
    • Did the ARR Festivus 15K Race in 2018

      Full loop course at Kiwanis Park, each loop is 5k. You run around the lake and some winding paths, all cement.
    • Did the ARR Festivus 15K Race in 2018

      It was a really nice course, a few hills, aid stations, and all paved, but the weather was a little nippy. I recommend wearing a hat and maybe some gloves. It was definitely worth the 7 bucks tho!
