Georgia Spartan Sprint Mud Race
Seven extreme athletes and one Royal Marine banded together to design Spartan Race’s intense miles-long course strewn with more than 15 obstacles to test resilience, stamina, and strength. Clad in event T-shirts, runners collect smudges and stains as they clamber across mud pits, slide unscathed under barbed wire, and juke feral linebackers. Upon crossing the finish line, victors are awarded a participation medal and of-age competitors sate thirsts with cold beer. The top three male and female runners each qualify for free entry to the next race-level up. Combatants compare fresh battle wounds—or scars from filing folders—as a live band plays catchy tunes and the aromas of warm, savory food (available for purchase) tempt grumbling bellies.
