Early humans developed the ability to sprint in order to chase down sprightly prey and invented long-distance running to escape from slowly approaching glaciers. Follow in their fossilized footsteps with this Groupon.
$39 for One Entry to Spartan Sprint Mud Race (Up to $100 Value)
On March 9 and 10, 2013, participants in event T-shirts gather at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers before taking off in the approximately four-mile Spartan Sprint. Heats start every half hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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.
