Each year the Obstacle Course Race (OCR) events become more popular and more diverse. I’m happy to admit that there are “adventure” type races for all ability levels. My girlfriend’s mom has even done one and she is in her late 60s! I love that fitness is finally saturating our communities!
The Reebok Spartan Race is one such OCR and it delivers an amazing experience each and every time, in locations all across the US.
According to the Spartan Media Team, here is a little bit about the series:
World’s Best Obstacle Race. Period.
Born in the scenic hills of Vermont, Spartan Race was created to bring the excitement of obstacle racing to spectators and athletes alike. That means you.
Spartan Race is a true adventure that anyone can do, and everyone should try. With course lengths of 3+miles (Sprint), 8+miles, (Super) and 12+miles (Beast) each course is filled with mud, water, and signature obstacles designed to help you discover your inner Spartan. Athletes of all fitness levels will enjoy participating in a Spartan Race and the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the finish line.
As OCRs diversify, the Spartan Race now offers events for kids and teams! They are also one of the few OCRs which boost venues in various locations throughout the US. This makes it so much easier for YOU to convince your friends to join you in an epic SPARTAN journey! Who’s going to be a Spartan in 2015?
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. It will be challenging but also FUN!
