Rugged Maniac

Rugged Maniac boasts 25+ obstacles consisting of unlimited mud, giant inflatables, epic fire jumps, and rope climbs for you and your friends to test your limits on while having as much fun as a kid on a playground. Plus, you’ll enjoy a day-long festival with ice-cold beer, rockin’ music, interactive games, and tons of delicious food.

Hot Chocolate Run

The Hot Chocolate 15k/5k is America’s sweetest race. With over 200,000 participants running for chocolate across more than 20 cities in the United States, this race series is one of the fastest-growing in the nation. The Hot Chocolate Series is widely regarded for its award-winning goodie bags featuring premium swag and tasty chocolate treats.


RAGBRAI, Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is more than just a bike ride, it is an epic eight-day rolling festival of bicycles, music, food, camaraderie, and community. It is the oldest, largest, and longest multi-day bicycle touring event in the world.

Statesman Cap 10K

Everything’s bigger in…Austin! When the Cap10K was off to the races in 1978, it had 3,400 participants. Looking forward to the 45th in 2022, the local race has not only grown to become the largest 10K in Texas, but also the sixth largest in the nation.
