There are three main types of Spartan Races. For beginners there is the Sprint. Spartan’s shortest courses are 3+ miles and 20+ obstacles. Ready for more? The Super is 8+ miles, 24+ obstacles, and often hosted on a tougher terrain. The hardest of the three races is the Beast: 12+ miles and 30+ obstacles. For kids there is the Jr. Varsity and Varsity races. These races, ½ – 1 mile in distance, have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy and are definitely in the future for the Monsters!
Athletes of all fitness levels will enjoy participating in a Spartan Race and the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the finish line. To ease your anxiety, the Spartan website offers both physical and mental ways to train. The harder you train and better you eat before race day, the easier the course will be. Ready to get started? Well, I happen to have two adult complimentary races to giveaway! You and a friend can each run a spartan of your choosing absolutely free (a value of $70-$140 per race entry!)
