This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Spartan Race for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever ran a race? I haven't. I know quite a few people who are into marathons and even triathlons, but I have yet to personally know someone who joined and succeeded a Spartan Race.


The main goal for marathon is to run towards the finish line, whereas in triathlon, one needs to swim, cycle and run to the finish line. However, to emerge as a Spartan, one needs to run, jump, climb, crawl, dive, slide, dodge, carry, drag, throw and be on your feet without knowing what you're going to get next! Created by eight ultra endurance athletes and a marine, Spartan Race is a world class obstacle race that requires participants to be totally athletic, disciplined and mentally tough. One can choose to traverse and battle the unknown miles alone or by group with friends or even family members with one objective in mind and that is to reach the finish line as a Spartan warrior(s).

The Ultimate Spartan Challenge is a three-part race.  The first part in this challenge is the Spartan Sprint.  If you think this is just another mud race, you have to rethink that. There may be fire, wires, and a whole bunch of what-nots that come with this sprint.  Next is the Olympic Super Spartan which involves 8 miles and a dozen plus obstacles which will make you push yourself harder to catapult your way to the finish line.  If the first two races did not faze you, step up to the Ultra Spartan Beast Challenge.  With another 12 miles of obstacles, this race will show your strength, weaknesses and commitment to finish what you have started.  Conquer all those three challenges and you will become an Ultimate Spartan.

For Spartans who are up for more difficult obstacles, there is the Spartan Death Race which is an ultimate test of physical, mental and emotional endurance.  This is definitely not for the weak or faint of heart!

Also, the element of surprise is constantly present in every Spartan Race. You will never be provided a course map, so if you need one each step of the way, then maybe the race is not for you.

So... you think you can handle a Spartan challenge?  Or do you want to push yourself to the extremes to know your limits?  Check out Spartan Race and sign up for one!  For frequently asked questions and answers, please check out:
Who knows, Spartan Race might just bring out the inner Spartan in you! ☻
