Are You a 'Rugged Maniac?' Brooklyn 5K May Be For You

Are you a burly, rugged maniac? The kind that considers no work out complete unless it includes a crawl through mud under barbed wire?

Have we got a rugged event for you: the Rugged Maniac Obstacle Race at Aviator Sports Complex on June 30.

Rugged Maniac features twenty rugged obstacles. The sponsors say: "These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over walls up to 12’ high, crawl through mud under barbed wire, slide down a 50’ water slide, jump over fire and face many other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes."

Like any good rugged adventure, the event ends in a blaze of rugged glory with "a rocking after party with great bands, good food and plenty of beer."

Aviator is at 3159 Flatbush Ave. in Brooklyn. More here.

I love adventure. I have done and tried that obstacle racing before. I find it fun and so adventurous activity.
