Spartan Up! Extreme Racing

If you read anything about fitness trends, you have probably heard of extreme racing.  You cover distances and overcome obstacles.  These obstacles can include large objects to push, pull, climb over or duck under.  There is also usually, mud, water and occasionally even fire involved.  If this sounds like a challenge you would like to accept, take a look at the Spartan Race

Spartan Races are held all over the country. The unique feature of a Spartan Race is the different levels of Spartanism you can achieve. Complete beginner? Join a Spartan workout in your area to prepare.  Then try a Spartan Sprint, a 3+ mile race with 15+ obstacles. Hitting your stride? Try a Spartan Super, which is 8+ miles and 20+ obstacles. A true extreme junkie? Go for the Spartan Beast a 13+ mile race with 25+ obstacles. If you do all three in one calendar year, you can earn your spot in the Trifecta Tribe.

A great Spartan Race opportunity is coming up on October 4, 2014 in Ohio.  A Sprint, Super and Beast event will all be held over one weekend. To help kick the racing season off, the folks at Spartan Race have given me one code, good for FREE entry into any open heat Spartan Race in the continental US. If you would like to enter for a chance to win the code, comment on this post and let me know why you would like to Spartan Up! A winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, August 13 (one month from today).

  1. Congratulations to Jasper! He is the winner of the free code to enter a Spartan Race. Thanks to all who participated in my contest!

  2. I want to try this because I keep getting mad fun of for not running anything by my friends. So I guess I should give it a shot

  3. I want to run this and get all my friends involved. The dirty girl doesn’t seem hard enough anymore. This looks perfect

  4. I would feel very appreciative if I won the free race because it would give me a chance to show improvement in myself! I ran my first Spartan Sprint this June, and I had a blast, but it also showed me that with more training I could push myself mentally and physically to go beyond what I was first capable of! If I win, I’d like to challenge myself to a Spartan Super! 🙂
