5 Simple Steps to Become Hardcore (A Spartan Race Giveaway)

I have another amazing giveaway for you! Who wants to run a Spartan obstacle race for free?

There are four types of Spartan races:


Sprint: 3 miles + 15 obstacles - entry level.
Super: 8 miles + 20 obstacles - intermediate level.
Beast: 12 miles + 25 obstacles - advanced level.
Death: 99.9% need not apply - extreme level.

This race is definitely on my fitness bucket list. I love obstacle course races but I have yet to graduate from the girly fun run obstacle runs. This is not a girly run. This is hardcore. Ready to step outside your comfort zone? I wish I could run the Texas race in December but I am grossly unqualified for a Spartan Beast distance I am running the Dallas marathon the weekend before and I am sure I will still be recovering from my 26.2.

Do you want to see what it is like to run a Spartan race? Check out this video for glimpse into the pain fun! To me it looks both really fun and really scary! I hope a Sprint distance comes to my area soon so I can cross a Spartan race off my fitness bucket list!
