Adventure runs evoke instinctual ties to humankind's primate ancestors, such as climbing, running, and drinking mud as a natural milk shake. Channel your inner beast with this Groupon.

Gladiator Assault Challenge
The Gladiator Assault Challenge confronts racers with a 7-mile course surrounded by scenic woodlands, cheering spectators, and 30 intense military training obstacles. Gladiators aged 18 and older go solo or join forces with other competitors to ford the waist-high waters of Mud Mayhem, rope-swing through Jungle Love, and use oversize novelty scissors to break the finish tape. Additional obstacles test physical stamina with 12-foot vertical walls, fallen trees, and cargo nets that act as moats blocking the finish line. After the Slideway ushers racers to a skidding finish, a complimentary beer and raucous after party lend ample time to scrawl "wash me" on opponents' backs.
