Have you tried a Spartan Race before?
I haven’t tried one yet and I’m considering the challenge to get back in shape. I’ve participated in color runs, mud runs, half marathon and even a sprint triathlon in the past but I’ve gotten out of training mode which is why the Spartan Race might be good motivation.
So what is a Spartan Race?
Here is a little more from the Spartan Race Website.
Spartan Race is a true adventure that anyone can do, and everyone should try. With course lengths of 3+miles (Sprint), 8+miles, (Super) and 12+miles (Beast) each course is filled with mud, water, and signature obstacles designed to help you discover your inner Spartan. Athletes of all fitness levels will enjoy participating in a Spartan Race and the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the finish line.
Spartan Race even has events for kids. We believe that fitness and adventure should involve the whole family. Come out and watch your kids run, jump, and climb like children were meant to do all in their own Spartan Kids race.
For those that want a more team based experience Spartan Race has the Hurricane Heat and for the truly adventurous theHurricane Heat 12 Hour. The Hurricane Heat takes you out of the individual role and has you work with a group of complete strangers to complete tasks designed to bring you together as a team. Those that have done the Hurricane Heat have often done multiple across the country, making friends for life along the way.
Not sure you are ready to run a Spartan Race? It’s ok we have everything you need to get you ready: Spartan SGX training, workouts-of-the-day, nutrition tips to help you eat better, and free workouts held in cities all over the country. Spartan Race is not only the worlds best obstacle race (period), but can be a complete lifestyle overhaul.
So even if you’ve tried a trail race, mud run, obstacle race, or adventure race it’s time to try a Spartan Race. Unlike other obstacle races we offer something for everyone. So sign-up, gear-up and find out why we say…
You’ll know at the finish line.

I really enjoy the challenge. I’d love to win this giveaway.
I’d love to get my trifecta this year in Tahoe.
I want to win! I love the outdoors!
I’ve been working extra hard this year on fitness goals. This race would take me even further out of my comfort zone, which I woul LOVE. I’ve begun practicing yoga and am final training for a half marathon! Basically I feel like a beast at this point ! Haha
I would like to win because I have heard great things about spartan after trying a warrior dash and tough mudder.
This is one of those things I always say I want to do “someday…” I suppose winning an entry would motivate me to make someday come sooner!
