Spartan Race Giveaway

Recently, I was contacted by the guys behind Spartan Racing to host a giveaway! Before we get to the details, let me first tell you about the Reebok Spartan Race.

Please note: I have not yet run a Spartan race although it sounds incredibly thrilling…I’d love to one day, hopefully soon!


First off, what is Spartan Racing and what makes it different from a typical “mud run”?

Spartans believed while on this earth, they should achieve one moment of excellence and understood they might die trying. I love this philosophy, although I’d rather not die mid-run. Beyond the thrill of exciting obstacles, the Spartan Race also encourages you to RUN this race and test yourself! According to their website, obstacles along this course include fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. There WILL be obstacles to catch you off guard.

Spartan Sprint = 3+ miles, 15+ obstacles
Super Spartan = 8+ miles, 20+ obstacles
Spartan Beast = 13+ miles, 25+obstacles
Ultra Beast = 26+ miles, 50+ obstacles
I’m just saying, if you complete the final race, you are the beast to end all beasts. The URL of the website to register for this event alone scares the poo out of me.

Complete all three race distances (Sprint, Super, and Beast) in a calendar year to earn the Spartan Trifecta Badge of Honor!
