Austin Super Spartan Race Giveaway

So I've done a lot of road races and I'm about to do another marathon on March 8 but I've only done one obstacle course race. Why is that? Well first off the one I did wasn't very challenging. It was fun but I told myself I wouldn't do another one unless there was an actual challenge to it. Enter in the Super Spartan 8+ mile! Here's what the website had to say about it:

"The Super Spartan obstacle race provides an 8+ MILES / 20+ OBSTACLES battlefield of insane mud running with 15 or more obstacles to test your physical strength and mental resolve. This mud fest of a race will have many trials to push you to your limits that any man or woman with resolve can complete! This endurance race consists of mud runs, trails, and both mental and physical obstacles and challenges. The good news is that after you complete your painful journey, there will be live music and a catered meal to soothe your aching joints."

Now that seems like a fun challenge that I should probably put some training in to. The good thing is that there is a local group from my area that have formed a Spartan team the "Golden Triangle Spartans". I know one of the guys has already set up a mini obstacle course in his backyard and hopefully we all will get some training over there soon. It'll be fun getting my body in shape to run this thing.


The Super Spartan race will definitely be a different kind of endurance challenge than the ones I'm used to. Do you want to join me and my team in Austin?
