In the past year or so, I have had the opportunity to participate in some pretty awesome races and runs. Two that really stick out are Pretty Muddy and the Dirty Girl Mud Run. These are great events, centered around empowering women, and gave me the opportunity to do something I hadn’t done before. There are a lot of other events out now similar to these runs, but one in particular caught my attention – Reebok’s Spartan Race!
Unlike the races I have done in the past, these races are open to anyone, both men and women alike. This definitely adds a little bit more challenge to the obstacles, as we as competition between the teams. The Spartan Race has multiple distances they offer, which is unique to the race series. Depending on your location, you could end up running a Sprint (3+ miles, 10 obstacles), a Super (8+ miles, and 15 obstacles), or a Beast (10+ miles, 18 obstacles). As for your race location, just check it out! There are quite a few to choose from!
The Spartan Race is new to Tampa and will end up being the sprint distance in February of next year. Seems like far away now, but I know it will creep up on me before I know it! This race definitely isn’t going to be tutu’s, bubbles, and smiles like my last couple of obstacle races – just check out the intensity!
The Spartan Race Series was nice enough to give me a race registration to give away to one of you, with a value of up to $205! Not too shabby, right?
