Rugged Maniac 2013 – Chicago/Milwaukee


Name: Katie Nowik

Event Details (parking, facilities, vendors, schwag, etc.): Plenty of parking.  The food was the BEST I’ve had at any race.  The veggie burger was FANTASTIC!  Being able to buy shots (shot skis!) was a nice surprise.

Event Name: Rugged Maniac – Chicago/Milwaukee

Race Details (length, obstacles, difficulty, etc.):

I love this race (second year doing it) because it is the only one I know of in the Midwest on a ski slope.  Many of the obstacle were challenging, yet not impossible.  I’ve described this event as a mini-Tough Mudder (without electricity or ice baths) as many of the obstacles are similar (albeit easier versions) and the up/down on the ski slope makes this a challenge.

Rating: 4 Stars (Great)

What would make this race better?: BLING!  The ONLY thing I would change about this race is having a finisher medal.  If this race had that, the icing on the cake so to speak, I would give it 5 stars!
