Fitness Friday: Are You SPARTAN Strong?

Happy Friday everyone! It's time for another race entry giveaway. Aroo! (not something I would normally say, but completely appropriate today!)

I've been in Ohio visiting family, but I couldn't resist signing on and letting you know about another great race taking the country by storm. You have probably heard about the Reebok Spartan Race Series. 

From the website:

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.

Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.
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.
Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race. 
Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.
There are Spartan events taking place all over the US in 2013, which means that there is probably one near you!

Use this url to access a discount code that will give you 15% off any Spartan Race.

Ready to find out if you are Spartan STRONG? Founder of Spartan, Joe De Sena, is traveling around the country giving free Spartan workouts in local gyms and facilities.

Reebok Spartan wants me to give YOU a free race entry to any open heat event in the continental US during the 2013-2014 event calendar. Use the rafflecopter below to enter.

I was asked to help promote the Spartan Race Series. I have not been compensated for this post.


  1. Oh man! what a fun looking race!!

  2. I totally want to do a Spartan Race!

  3. I want to do a Spartan Race because I've never participated before.

  4. I want to complete a Spartan race because it looks like a fun way to challenge myself.

  5. These look fun and challenging but none close to me.

  6. I've done a Tough Mudder, but Spartan is a whole different kettle of fish. It's a race, not really about team work.
    I have however put my name down to be a volunteer at the Melbourne race in october. i'm looking forward to it. It will make me decide if I want to do one or not.

  7. I want to prove that I am Spartan strong!

  8. I'm signed up for the sprint in MA next month. I've debated doing the Beast. How about I publicly say now that if I win I'll do the Beast??? Egads, what did I just do?

  9. I just did the Tough Mudder a few weeks back so why not compare the two events and see who really is the best obstacle course!!!

  10. just did the PA sprint.....would love to do the NJ Super!

  11. I have heard great things about the Spartan race and am up for the challenge! I'm doing my first mud run in a couple weeks, but I've heard this race is great!

  12. I am simply DYING to do this race!!!!


I love comments!
