Spartan World Championships & Giveaway

A few months back I shared info here about the Reebok Spartan World Championship that is scheduled to air on NBC December 7th, 2013.  

I just wanted to remind everyone about it once again.  This event is going to epic.  (I don’t use that word often) It’s the first of it’s kind to be broadcast on national television.  It is definitely an event that you don’t want to miss.  The best of the Spartan competitors coming together to battle it out.  

Set your DVR and reminders now.   

Another thing I thought worth mentioning to you was something I saw online a few days ago.  According to Forbes.com, Spartan Race founder, Joe Desena, wants to make obstacle course racing an Olympic sport.  He is biding to bring OCR to the 2020 Olympics.

What??? 

Can you imagine racing an event that could someday be included in the Olympic lineup?  I think that’s pretty freaking awesome.

The team at Spartan is so excited to share their passion for obstacle course racing to the masses.  For the first time, the audience will have the opportunity to witness the grueling challenges and tasks performed during one of these events.  

If you have never participated in an event like this, now is your chance to get an up close and personal look at just what goes on throughout the course.

All the dirt, sweat, blood and tears will be coming to you in high def via NBC.   

 

Spartan is the only OCR (obstacle course race) that offers different races to meet your level of ability.  Spartan recently introduced  a level for everyone, beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the “99% need not apply” extreme level Death Race.  Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength and stamina.  

 

Because these guys at Spartan are so pumped and excited about their December 7th broadcast, they have offered me another race entry to raffle off to one of my readers.  The race entry will be good for a one time use for any open heat in any 2013-2104 Spartan Race in the continental US.  

If you are hesitant to participate in this event, fear not.  I am grouping together with a selection of my fellow lady and gentleman racers.  We are running together and are dedicated to assisting each other through the obstacles as a group if needed.  You are welcome to join us if you choose.

  1. How would I train for a spartan? Lots of burpees. I just seen Joe Desana talk about the burpee and he said thats all he did before he ran Killington Mt. If thats all he does, thats good enough for me. Spartan’s are the best of the best when it comes to Obstacle racing

  2. This would make such a better Olympic event than some of the ones they have now. I hope I remember to watch this. I don’t get this channel so I’ll have to go to my mom’s house. Someone may need to tweet me a reminder. 🙂 I also had no idea that they had so many levels. I was always afraid to do something like this buy if Spartan has beginner (like super, baby beginner) it might be doable for me. Fun!

  3. I know that the penalty for not completing an obstacle during the race is 30 burpees. And since I get winded after doing just 10 consecutive burpees, I need to work on that.
