RUGGED MANIAC ANNOUNCES LIVE MUSIC AND DRINKS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS AS TEXAS MOTORPLEX IS TURNED INTO A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE

RUGGED MANIAC ANNOUNCES LIVE MUSIC AND DRINKS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS AS TEXAS MOTORPLEX IS TURNED INTO A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE

The Enablers to Perform in Festival Area at the Motorplex Nov. 9

For the adventurous types who love live music, drinks, fun and mud (yep, we said mud), Texas Motorplex is pleased to host, for the first time in its 28 years, the 5k Rugged Maniac mud run and obstacle course. The 20-obstacle challenge will be set up and ready for those rugged enough to take on the mud, fire and walls, on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Texas Motorplex.

If you want to be close to the action but aren’t sure about diving in, Rugged Maniac is still looking for volunteers. Go to the website and sign up and you will receive a free registration on race day or in the future.

But if you ARE rugged enough from the start, the event features 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 – Texas Motorplex.

And just announced, the live music will be performed by The Enablers, on stage in the festival area with all kinds of activities including a mechanical bull.

Registration will be available online and in person right up to the day of the event. Go to www.ruggedmaniac.com for more details.

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.
