As more and more obstacle course races (OCRs) are popping up throughout the country there are certainly a few that have managed to stand out among the crowd and create an amazing reputation for themselves. The Spartan Race is one such OCR which delivers an amazing experience each and every time, regardless of the location.
This race series was voted #1 Obstacle Race by Outside Magazine in 2012 and according to 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.
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.
With venues in various locations throughout the US, the Spartan Race is becoming more popular each year.
The addition of races of varied difficulty have made this series one for the beginner as well as the serious athlete. Go have fun with your friends or qualify for one of the elite heats and try for the win! Regardless of your skill level, there is an event for you. And it just looks fun!

Afterward, sit, relax, listen to the live music and eat some real food!
