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.
