$39 for One Entry to the Spartan Race (Up to $83 Value)

On Saturday, April 27, participants wearing event T-shirts gather at Haspin Acres at 8 a.m. before taking off on the approximately 4-mile Spartan Race, which is an obstacle course. Racers who complete the course receive a finisher's medal, and all racers receive a T-shirt.

Spartan Races

Extreme athletes banded together to design Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.
