$52 for Full Race Registration and VIP Package (Up to $120 Value)
The VIP package includes two beers for participants 21 and older, exclusive parking near the entry, a Gladiator Rock'n Run T-shirt, and access to special VIP check-in, bag check, and restroom areas. The race takes place Saturday, October 13, at Estrella Mountain Park, with the first wave of runners departing at 8 a.m., and subsequent waves taking off every half hour until 1 p.m. The spectator-friendly course feeds into an after-race party, as exhausted runners forget about their burning calves and mud-splattered souls with ample beer, food, and music from live bands.
Gladiator Rock'n Run
Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run 6K pairs an obstacle-heavy running course with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Six kilometers’ worth of collective scampering awaits participants as muscle-testing obstacles impede progress to the finish line. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes. Gladiator Rock'n Run proceeds go toward a good cause, helping to raise money for TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), an organization that provides education, support, and information to aid parents in helping their children diagnosed with autism.
