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 at Virginia Motorsports Park on May 4th 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!
Over this weekend, run with Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the gang! Kings Dominion knows how to bring the fun---from amazing thrill rides to great half, quarter-marathon, 5K, and 1-mile races with the Peanuts Run & Ride! These events will have you twisting and turning through the park way before the gates even open.
