In just about 2 weeks, the obstacle-running enthusiasts of the world will likely have their eyes turned to the 2014 Spartan Race Triple Crown and the World Championship Race in Killington Vermont on September 20th. Or maybe you’re one of the people tuned into NBC’s series on the Spartan Race and dream about wanting to do one of these races yourself.
Good news! Because I’ve got a passion for running and love to participate in not-so-girly events like mud runs and obstacle races, I’ve been asked to share some info with you about the Spartan Race. From their website, you’ll find that:
Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.
Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.
This I love. I truly believe that every body is capable of pushing their own limits and challenging themselves mentally and physically. I don’t love obstacle races for the medals or beers at the end. I love them for the teamwork, the mental challenge (I cried more in the races I’ve done than I did in childbirth), and the glory of finishing even if it takes hours.
And because Reebok and the Spartan Race embrace a challenge, they have “a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race”…and a series for kids ages 4-14!
What’s even better? You can participate in any remaining 2014 Spartan Race (open heat) for 15% off the registration fee by using my special code, SPARTANBLOGGER. Or, you can enter to win a free entry right here through September 13. Check out locations near you and enter today!
