“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.”
YES!!! That is some good sh*t! (I especially love the “excited about change” and “challenging today’s perception of normal” parts!)
When I read the mission of Reebok Spartan Race, I couldn’t help but be drawn to their desire to help ordinary people reach higher and to do something truly extraordinary!
The peeps at Reebok Spartan Race are reaching higher too! They’ve outdone themselves this year with some really exciting things in store.
“Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.”
In order to make their events accessible to everyone, they’ve added a new feature this year. In 2015, there are more options than ever to experience what it means to be a Spartan. For the beginner, there is the Spartan Sprint. (That’s me!) The Super Spartan event is for intermediate athletes. Advanced? There is an event for you: The Spartan Beast! Oh, and let’s not forget the cray-cray among us, (and they say 99.9% need not apply) is the extreme level Death Race. EEK!
But wait! There’s more!
Why stop at doing just one Spartan event this year when you could purchase a Spartan Annual Pass, which also offers VIP access to all US races, kick ass perks like travel discounts, and unlimited racing!
Or, how about a Spartan Cruise that takes you to a private island in the Bahamas for the ultimate tropical island Spartan race? How cool is that?! Part vacation, part epic obstacle adventure on white sand beaches. The Spartan Cruise is coming up in early March so if the idea of a weekend of racing in the Bahamas interests you, you can find more information about the Island Cruise here.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 2015 Spartan World Championship in Lake Tahoe this October. The weekend-long event will feature all four racing options with over $500,000 in cash prizes being awarded to top finishers! You’ll find more beastly details at the aforementioned link.
