Rugged Maniac – Pennsylvania
Mohnton, PA, United States

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 Maple Grove Raceway on August 3rd 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!
