$85 for Entry to Spartan Race (Up to $170 Value)

On Sunday, July 21, participants gather at The Cliff's Off-Road Park in Marseilles at 8 a.m. before taking off on the approximately 8- to 9-mile Midwest Super Spartan. The route is a challenging course replete with obstacles that can include everything from mud and fire to fire-breathing mud monsters. All racers receive a finisher's medal, a spectator ticket, and a T-shirt. Those aged 21 and older also receive a free beer ticket during the after-party where they can celebrate their victory with music supplied by DJs.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

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.
