Are you SPARTAN strong?  SR_altbizcard__girljump_1

As explained on their site, 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.


This obstacle race series has three exciting announcements…

1.  Spartan has recently partnered with Runner’s World.  The collaboration and partnership of these two premier fitness brands is sure to guarantee a fabulous FIT event series.

2.  They are bringing the race [three distance options] to OH-IO on October 4th for the first time ever!   img-1

  • The Spartan Sprint is comprised of 15+ obstacles over 3+ miles and is a great way to get off the couch and onto the course!
  • The Spartan Super will test your physical strength and mental resolve. Tackle 20+ obstacles over 8+ miles, and show that you’re Spartan tough!

Lastly, a quick SHOUT OUT to Francesca & Julia of for the Sunday Shout out idea!  Thank you!


  1. I did a Spartan Sprint back in June and it was very challenging, but fun! It showed me my strengths and weaknesses, and I’d love to use the registration to get the chance to show my improvement at a Super this time!

    1. Thanks Kate! I haven’t tried one yet, but I’m SUPER excited to someday 🙂 Good luck on the contest and feel free to enter the other two ways for 3 chances!

  2. I really want to try and and complete the trifecta in one day in ohio. I don’t think anyone else has done that yet so I really want to be one of the first to do it.
