|The third annual Southwick Rugged Maniac is going to be the biggest and baddest yet, so they are opening up a second day of racing on Sunday to meet demand! This five kilometer course loops through the woods and a motocross track. That's right, a motocross track (built for dirt bikes). They have amped it up with barbed wire, tunnels, mud pits, pools of water, barricades, cargo nets, scrambles, swinging pendulums and a host of other obstacles that make this course one rugged gauntlet of glory! When it's all done, you'll have the right to declare "I am a Rugged Maniac!" and you'll get an awesome t-shirt to prove it. So come on out, push your limits and then celebrate with live music, food, beer, and other like-minded Maniacs!|
