Ok so for those of you who know me, you know I consider myself to be a lil bit of a badass. But in all of my running, crossfitting, and weightlifting badassery I haven’t tackled a mud/obstacle run since the Warrior Dash in 2011.
Enter the Spartan Race.
First, the race itself comes in four different categories, with the most extreme one called the Death Race. Yea. DEATH… RACE. Cheers to the souls who have the athletic prowess and mental fortitude to enter that category. But for us regular folks the other levels are:
Spartan Sprint (for beginners), which is about a 5k
Spartan Super (intermediate), which is 8+mi
Spartan Beast (advanced), which is 12+mi
I’ve no clue what Spartan Death entails, but I salute you brave souls who have a go at it.
Obstacles and overall race distance seem to vary depending upon the “level” you sign up for. It looks like a fun time, and definitely something I’d like to give a go…
So…are there any takers? Anyone planning on running the Spartan this year? If so, I’ve got a little gift for one lucky Spartan wannabe, courtesy of the folks at the Spartan Race. One reader will win a FREE race entry!!!
