For those that feel their regular 5k jaunt around the city is no longer cutting it, this true test of endurance might just be for you. Broken down into Sprint, Super and Beast categories, the Spartan Race is an unparalleled opportunity for those fitness fanatics out there.
Come join a literal army of like-minded participants as you tackle 6, 14 or 21 kilometers filled with a range of innovative and often muddy obstacles. Between you and the finish line expect to come across tire drags, barbed wire crawls, rope climbs and – of course – good old-fashioned walls, among other things. Those who reach the end will receive a medal, T-shirt and plenty of pride.
Age is no issue either, with a three-tier Junior option offered for those little Spartans out there. And if you’ve already beaten the Beast, you’re eligible to enter the Hurricane Heat 12-hour endurance contest. Keen? If so, remember spectators are welcomed, so grab some vocal friends and family to scream support.
