There are a lot of similarities between Rugged Maniac vs Tough Mudder, but there are also a lot of things that make them stand out from each other. Below, we found some key information that will help you prepare, whether you’re an OCR pro or a first time racer looking to get their feet wet (or muddy!) when one of these races comes around.
Tough Mudder has some of the best obstacles on the OCR circuit. Perhaps no race is as creative when it comes to creating (and naming!) the obstacles they will challenge racers with this year. With some old favorites coming back, and some new obstacles no one has faced, you will want to be sure you look ahead to make sure you can visualize yourself overcoming each obstacle and getting to the finish line.
The Spartan Race Obstacle list is a lot like Fight Club: the first rule of Spartan Race is that you don’t talk about the Spartan Race Obstacle list. The second rule is…well you get the picture. While Spartan Races tend to use the same locations from year to year, they always add and remove obstacles, change up the order, and give racers a whole new feel every year. Race organizers also keep the Spartan Race obstacle list secret until the day of the race, and even then, only some of the obstacles are shared that morning.
