Have you been out holiday shopping for family and friends? Well, here’s your chance to get a special gift just for you in our Spartan Holiday Giveaway, which includes One (1) U.S. Race Entry in 2017.
What is a Spartan race? It’s a race that contains a series of obstacles across varying distances beginning at 5km combined with varying difficulties. They can look a bit intimating, but it’s not just for the elite. The truth is Spartan races attract a diverse range of physical fitness backgrounds and people of all different shapes and sizes. That’s why this is our 3rd year partnering with Spartan, to offer opportunities for plus size women to unleash their inner athlete. Just take a look at what past, plus size Spartan race finishers, Samantha and Jessica have to say about training, what it took to cross the finish line and how they felt after achieving their athletic goal.
While Spartan races are individual races, there is no denying there is a community spirit involved from preparing your mind and body to conquering the obstacle course and supporting your fellow racers along the way.
For 2017, Spartan has introduced new changes including a limited quantity of Season Passes (race as much as you want), Trifecta passes (race a Sprint, Super and Beast in one calendar year), cool new medal designs and 7 new obstacles including the Stairway to Spartan, Spartan Ladder, Olympus, Ape Hanger, Thigh Master, Herc Hoist and Bucket Carry. And let’s not forget the new merchandise. I think wearing your medal is the quintessential badge of honour, but let’s face it, you can’t wear it ALL the time. But with this gear, you can. My personal favourite, the Spartan Bracelet.
So, are you ready to unleash your inner athlete? We know every woman has one, she’s in there and it’s time to let her reign by activating that inner power and going for it.
Just imagine, in 3 months time, you could be racing in Lake Elsinore (So Cal), Houston, Atlanta, Las Vegas or some place else. And, on Christmas Day, grab your family and watch the Spartan Race World Championships on NBC, 5pm EST and tell them “I’m doing that next year”.
