Here's what races are available for Rugged Maniac – South Carolina
Pole Position – Pole Position is a teamwork obstacle that requires a good amount of upper body strength to complete solo. It’s like trying to pull yourself up and over the side of a swimming pool without a ladder. With Pole Position you’ll first have to pull yourself up and onto a 5′ tall platform. This is where the teamwork comes in. If you can’t make it up on your own, ask a fellow runner to give you a boost. Once you make it to the top of the platform the fun part begins. Ever wanted to slide down a firefighter’s pole? Now’s your chance! Reach out and grab the pole and slide on down to continue with the race!
Off The Rails – Off The Rails is our take on a zip line but with more of a challenge and a watery end. Zip lines are easy and go downhill. Off The Rails requires you to use momentum to slide uphill far enough to ring a bell at the far end. This will really test your running speed, grip strength, and coordination. Get a running start, grab the hanging rope, and try to make it over a pool of water all the way to the bell at the end. Slap the bell and fall into the water to complete this one.
Full Tilt – Full Tilt could be our most challenging obstacle to date! It’s a monkey bar crossing with a twist… or tilt. You’ll first have to work your way up an 8′ inclined ladder, which is pretty difficult by itself. But we’ve made it even more challenging by making the ladder pivot downward as you pass the mid-point. Although going downhill is easier, you’ll first have to survive the jolt of the ladder moving into place. Hold on tight and don’t start moving until the ladder is in place. Complete the second half by working your way down to the far side.
Sled Dog – Sled Dog is a total body challenge that’ll test your arms, shoulders, back, core, and legs! As you approach, you’ll see a rope on the ground connected to a 50lb sled about 30′ away. Grab it and pull the sled all the way to you, then jump over to the opposite side of it, grab the short rope on the back, and drag it all the way back to where it started. After completing Sled Dog, you’ll have a new appreciation for our four-legged friend in the Great White North!
The Crag – To conquer The Crag you have to climb steep inflatable cliffs and then squeeze your way through the logs on top before climbing down the other side. NO CLEATS ALLOWED!
Accelerator 3.0 – The Mount Maniac water slide just got a serious upgrade! The Accelerator you know and love just grew to almost double its old size and is now inflatable! Get ready for a serious splashdown!
Pull Your Weight – Pull your weight is exactly what you’ll have to do to complete this obstacle. Grab a rope and pull as hard as you can to lift the 30-pound keg to the top and continue on your way.
Jump Start – Jump Start is a new twist on a classic Rugged Maniac obstacle. We’ve removed the bottom rungs of Beam Me Up! so you now have to jump and use your arm strength to get to the top. This one might require some teamwork!
Fenced In – Fenced In forces you to get up close and personal with 30 feet of mud while trapped under a huge chain link fence!
Antigravity – We’ve built the only trampoline obstacle in the world! Defy gravity as you bounce your way to the padded cargo climbs using TWO rows of trampolines!
Frog Hop – Leap to each floating “lilypad” without falling in! The trick is to land near the center each time.
The Ringer – This obstacle will test your grip strength and hand-eye coordination. The trick is to swing like a monkey with each hand on a ring!
The Gauntlet – Avoid the swinging bags and make it to the other side without falling in! New for 2016, we’ve increased the difficulty by adding floating pads that move beneath you as you run!
Pyromaniac – Leap over rows of flaming logs! Be sure to build up sufficient speed before jumping!
The Warped Wall – A running start is essential to get to the top of this warped wall. Try to find a helping hand near the top!
Mount Maniac – On one side is The Warped Wall, on the other is the Accelerator, and in the middle is the Mount Maniac cargo climb between towers of shipping containers! You’re not afraid of heights, are you?
Let’s Cargo! – How quickly can you get over these cargo nets? Getting your footing is no easy task on these flexible rope braids.
Commando Crawl – Crawl through muddy water under real barbed wire. Stay low!
Claustrophobia – Conquer your fear of dark, close spaces when you go underground in these dirt tunnels.
Speed Trap – Beware the drop-offs hidden beneath this muddy water!
The Trenches – Mind the gap! Your best bet is to get a running start and leap at full speed.
Quad Burners – Dirt hills that will make you feel the burn! Watch out if it rains – they’ll turn into slippery slopes that require teamwork to conquer.
Jacob’s Ladder – Climb up and over these 12-foot wooden pyramids. Try to maintain your speed without losing your grip!
Head Scratcher – Crawl on your belly under barbed wire through a (relatively) dry mud pit. Stay low and keep your butt down!
Shoe Catcher – Thick mud that can suck the shoes right off your feet! Make sure you tie those laces tight!
Barricades – Vault over these 4-foot walls on your way to the finish line! New for 2016, we’ve added rolling pipes on the top to add another degree of difficulty!

Event day logistics
ID & Waiver
If you’re 18 and over*, you need to bring a photo ID to verify your age, but you DO NOT need to bring a copy of your signed waiver. You’ll sign the waiver at the Check-In Tent before you run. If you’re under 18*, you need to bring a copy of the waiver located on the event page signed by your parent or legal guardian. If you forget it, your parent can still sign a waiver for you at the race.
Each racer gets a race bib which must be worn on the front of his/her body (shirt or shorts). The bib serves three purposes: (1) It lets security know that you’re a paid runner, (2) you can enter your bib number into the designated website after the race to find any pictures and download for FREE, and (3) items at the bag check are organized by bib number, so you must have it in order to retrieve your bags. Your final start time may vary by up to an hour from the ticket time - you exact time will be sent to you upon receipt of booking.
The 5,000-person party starts at 8:30 a.m. with a DJ on the main stage, booths giving away free stuff, all kinds of interactive games (mechanical bulls, dance-offs, stein-hoisting, pie-eating…), and tasty food and beer to keep you fueled all day. The best part? The festival and games are completely FREE, no ticket required, so even your least adventurous friends can join the party!

Remember when you were a kid and you used to run around outside with your friends climbing trees, jumping in puddles, playing tag, and just plain having fun? Well Rugged Maniac is simply an adult version of that! We build 25+ epic obstacles for you and your friends to play on (like fire jumps, water slides, trampolines, and underground tunnels), put them in a 3-mile course, and then throw a crazy party with plenty of beer and music!
Spectators are welcome!
What to bring
Unless you have trail running or OCR-specific shoes, whatever shoes you wear will likely be ruined by the mud and water. So wear old sneakers you can toss in our donation pile after you run. Protect your elbows and knees from getting scratched up during the crawls with compression sleeves and or tights, and wear quick-drying and snug athletic shorts and tops so you don’t get weighed down with water after the first mud pit!
Bring a towel, a change of clothes (including shoes or flip flops), sunscreen, water, a plastic bag to put your muddy clothes in, and a folding chair or blanket to sit on. If you want to skip the rinse-off lines, bring a couple of gallons of water to leave in your car – they’ll heat up throughout the day giving you a nice warm rinse while everyone else shivers from the well water! Coolers aren’t allowed into the event.
