Manic Race Team

There is hardly anything more important to us here at Manic than to be able to test the fitness we build in the gym.  Besides all of the amazing adventures we know you go on in these Colorado mountains and everywhere else in the world, we think getting together at organized events is one of the best ways to build community and see what we are able to do.  These reasons are why we started the race team and will continue to grow it!

This year we are putting forth a large list of events ranging from local trail races, to relay races in the mountains, to obstacle races such as the Spartan Super in Fort Carson, as well as several other exciting events.

Who should be on the TEAM?

Anyone who is planning on doing more than one event outside of Manic should join!  It is not for any particular level of athlete and having something to train for out of the gym keeps you motivated!

How do you join the TEAM?

The process is fairly informal.  Shoot us an email or ask one of our coaches at the gym!  We have some awesome gear for purchase to represent and also have plenty of training days you can join for FREE and fun!

What are the events?

So. Many. Events.  With a community like Manic with so many amazing humans who like to try new things and test themselves there are so many events.  The best place to see the events in a list is at the bottom of this page.  It is forever evolving.  The best place to see the events on a calendar is here.  The best way to stay in the loop is on our Facebook Group called Manic Adventures.  The best way to share events is on the Facebook events page.


While we are serious about our lifestyles and training, we’re not looking for “serious” racers only. We want people who exemplify the Manic Training mantras of “ready for life” and “train in – adventure out”.  You do not need to be a top level athlete, you just need to want to get outside, get after it, and cheer on and support all of your friends!
