If you’re a runner like me (stop laughing, I was out running at 5:30 this morning!), you know that races can put a slight dent in your wallet! So today I’m giving away a free race registration for one Spartan Race! This is not your grandmother’s 5k- read on!
Spartan Races are “adventure races” which means you’ll face lots of different obstacles along the way. They have all levels, ranging from an entry level sprint (3+ miles/15+ obstacles) all the way to the extreme level Death Race (basically the Hunger Games). Yikes!
What obstacles will you face? Well, here’s what they have to say about that:
There are some staples in our repertoire. There are also some venue specific and terrain inspired obstacles. We will not, however, spell it out for you. As well, you will get no course map to inspect. There is fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. There WILL be obstacles to catch you off guard. Curve balls, so to speak. Get over it.
Wow, so okay…nervous laughter. I’m afraid of you, Spartan Race.
WHICH OBVIOUSLY MEANS I MUST COMPLETE YOU NOW.
There will be a Spartan Sprint in Arizona, on February 8th and 9th:
And a Spartan Super will be held in Las Vegas on April 5th:
And for those of you with kids, every Spartan Race in the US includes a Spartan Kids racing event! There’s a half mile obstacle course for kids ages 4-8, and a mile long course for 8-13 year olds. Check out the Spartan Kids website for more information.
I’m giving away a free race registration code today, good for any open 2014 Spartan Race in the continental US. This would be awesome for any runner (or non-runner!) who wants to take things to the next level. Could be for yourself or would make a great gift!
Also, if you don’t win or you want to register right now, you can get 15% off Spartan Race registration here!
Good luck, and let me know how it goes! You know, if you survive.
