Running isn't as fun when you're alone, much like yelling about spring break. Get sweaty with this Groupon.
- $65 for one race entry (up to $140 value)
On Saturday, September 20, participants gather at Citizens Bank Park before taking off in waves on the 4-mile Philadelphia Spartan Sprint. Participants will be challenged with a number of obstacles, which might include climbing walls and ropes, barbed wire, or mud. All racers receive a finisher's medal, t-shirt, and free mud, and those 21 and over get one free beer ticket.
This Groupon is valid only for waves starting at 12:15 p.m. or later. Online registration is required.
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.
