Spectators were free, the event was well organized and had lots of fun things to do afterwards. You had to be present to get your wrist bands and they checked wave times at the start line, seems like good common sense to keep things running smooth.
The medic tent was right by the finish line, which was great for scrapes and cuts. I wish they had water at the end in addition to the sport drinks, but you could buy it if you wanted.
I loved the t shirt women's cut and super soft and medal, and you didn't get a bag full of advertising and junk to throw out. Perfect spring weather and a great group of friends didn't hurt! Due to inclement weather tornadoes ,if you could not race and if you requested it they transferred my registration to race.

I ran this in it was my first one and loved it. Can't wait to go back and try it again! One of Rugged Maniac's big selling points is that unlike everyone else, they offer refunds! A few days before the race, acres and acres of the deadliest wildfire in CA history broke out and continued burning throughout race day.
The race was near the fires. Breathing the fire air for so long made me have cold symptoms, so I thought running in that air would be a bad idea, and requested a refund two days before the event. They denied my request because it wasn't a good enough reason. WHY would you advertise refunds as a huge selling point when you won't give refunds for gigantic, air-compromising wildfires??

This was my third year in a row doing the Rugged Maniac, despite saying i would never do it again after last year that first hill is a doozy! Note on that later. I added the new VIP option to my registration which was a bit of a joke: i managed to utilize the VIP services i signed up for despite the lack of direction from the race organizers in how to. That alone would've dropped my review down to three stars if it wasn't for the fact that i think they shortened the initial hill climb by a good half.
The race is still a tremendous challenge! They changed up the obstacles too, taking out one of my favorites not a big deal. Incidentally, according to my Apple Watch, the actual distance of this "5K" was actually 3. I did the Rugged Maniac before and it was so amazing!!! The party starts at sunset! This fall, we've got a line-up of some of the flattest and fastest events around. With only four months to spare, now is the time to accomplish your goals. Want to run farther, recover faster, and feel better? Of course you do, and we know just the thing.
