Obstacle Course in Brooklyn
Rugged Maniac brings a muddy race to Brooklyn
There's a big difference between a maniac and a crazy person.
Crazy person: no idea what he's capable of; erratic; scares small children.
Maniac: no idea what he's capable of; erratic; scares small children; is awesome.
A respectable, but not overwhelming, 5K with 14 obstacles, the BK Maniac is like a Spartan Run-light or a dialed down Tough Mudder. By no means is it an obstacle course on easy mode, but expect to have more fun than debilitating injuries.
Runners will get some sweet swag: a T-shirt, recovery food at the finish, one free beer and a welling sense of self-satisfaction.
If watching pain and suffering are more up your obstacle alley than enduring it, buy a spectator ticket and hydrate at the beer station.
But why watch when you can have fun in the mud? That's just crazy.
Rugged Maniac; November 19; $78; Spectator tickets $10
