Remember the good ol’ days when you spent your summer playing outside in your backyard with friends all day long? Forget Saturday morning brunch and running errands for a weekend. Sign up for the Rugged Maniac 5k with a group of friends and flashback to your childhood. Race through a mud course with your friends while tackling epic obstacles, enjoy a day-long festival, and top it all off with a cold beer.

The Rugged Maniac 5k will take place on Saturday, June 24 at Aviator Sports in Brooklyn. The race is more than your typical mud run, it includes over 25 obstacles like fire jumps, underground tunnels, trampolines, and water slides all over a three-mile course. Registration includes access to a day-long festival before and after the race. Attractions at the festival include mechanical bull rides, music at the main stage, pie eating contests, and beach volleyball. The fun doesn’t stop there. Once you complete the race, enjoy a cold beer included in your registration fee. Registration is $99 plus tax and includes a t-shirt, racer medal, full access to the festival, a free photo, parking, and one free beer.
