Reebok Spartan Race Series | Giveaway!


It's no lie that I like to run. But sometimes, it's fun to take on a different sort of challenge - one that's just not all about running. While I have no strength in my body besides my legs, it's nice to put that theory to the test and see if I can manage any other strenuous activities that require muscles from my waist up (hint: my arms are more tired than my legs usually).

Obstacle courses are probably the best way to do that - with so many around by name (Spartan, Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder) and then smaller, local races that do the same, there are plenty of options to get your obstacle on and see what you're made of, too.


I have yet to add a Spartan race to my schedule this year, but maybe at some point in the near future, it'll get on my race calendar too! I'm excited for a little not-all-running fun, you know what I mean?

The cool part about the Spartan series is that there's varying degrees of intensity to choose from: Spartan Sprint is 3+ miles with 15+ obstacles, Super Spartan at 8+ miles and 20+ obstacles, and Spartan Beast at 12+ miles and 25+ obstacles! Each course is filled with mud pits, water, and their signature obstacles for you to tackle. Sounds like a blast to me!


For more updates all about Spartan races, be sure to follow their news feed - you can check out their new Podcast series, learn about the Spartan pass that allows you do to multiple races in a year, and even check out their newest venture - the Spartan CRUISE! Yep, a cruise down to the Bahamas so you can get your obstacle on internationally. If only I'd be ready, I'd say count me in!

Spartan races are all over the country, from Washington to Florida and Vermont to California - where will you take the challenge?
