Are you ready for a challenge? Get ready! Rugged Maniac is coming to Texas Motorplex on November 9.
RUGGED MANIAC CHALLENGES ALL WHO STEP ON TEXAS MOTORPLEX GROUNDS WITH A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE
20-Obstacle Course and Festival Comes to the Motorplex Nov. 9
ENNIS, Texas (Oct. 8, 2013) – Looking for your next adventure? How about a day filled with epic obstacles, live bands and plenty of beer all at a location known for being in the extreme sport business right here in the greater DFW area?
Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race has you covered! Texas Motorplex is proud to host the Nov. 9 Rugged Maniac event for the first time ever. Rugged Maniac has been hosting the most dynamic, extreme and fun events for years and are constantly recognized for putting on some of the nation’s best obstacle course events.
Here’s how it works: Sign up for the race and you’ll get a chance to run our 3.1-mile course filled with 20+ obstacles designed to push you to your limits! While you’re waiting for your turn on the course, you’ll get to hang out with thousands of other maniacs in the festival area where you can ride mechanical bulls, play muddy tug-o-war, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, or just hang out and listen to the bands while enjoying some tasty food or beverages. Not only that, but each runner gets a high-quality t-shirt, free professional race photos and a beer (if 21 or over) with their registration!
Are you ready to be challenged? Get your costume together, grab a team of friends and prepare for epic fun on a 5k course filled with unique obstacles.
Rugged Maniac courses feature at least twenty obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over walls up to 20’ high, slide down a 100’ water slide, jump over fire, crawl through tunnels of mud and face a host of other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes! And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 300 maniacs to avoid overcrowding.
In short, Rugged Maniac strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality with our day-long party and award-winning course. That’s why Men’s Journal named Rugged Maniac one of the best obstacle races in the country. Want more reviews? Check out what people are saying about Rugged Maniac on Facebook.
Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
