Spartan Race Series
One event goal was to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone. Spartan Race has three levels of courses: 3 mile Sprint, 8 mile Super and 10 – 12 mile Beast. Participants will run, jump and shimmy your way over a dozen or more challenging obstacles and mud. Courses are uniquely designed to test your mental and emotional fitness and push you past Sports Techie limits.
Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race.
Stadiums are packed with premier sports technology and Reebok Spartan Race is geared up to tour some of the country’s greatest ballparks in 2013. After the competitive race at Fenway last year and Citi Field NY on April 13th, Spartan Race has created one-of-a-kind Sprints around Miller Field, Citizens Bank Park, and once again at Fenway Park.
Free Workout and Ebook with Founding Spartan
Spartan Race founder, Joe De Sena, is traveling around the country giving out free Spartan Workouts at local gyms and facilities. You can sign up for the workout and also a free ebook, You’ll Know at the Finish Line, by Spartan Race founders Joe Desena and Andy Weinberg, at the web site.
They outline the Spartan training philosophy, inspired by the courage and discipline of the Ancient Spartiates and dedicated to functional exercise, which requires neither equipment nor gym membership – just a body, a will, and the great outdoors.
Loaded with comprehensive workout strategies and heartfelt personal testimonies from Spartan Legends like Hobie Call and Lisa Demetriou, You’ll Know at the Finish Line blazes the definitive trail for the long-lost sport of obstacle racing.
Sports Techie supports the Spartan Race mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. If you have entered the race, pictures and video clip recordings of your racing adventure can be filmed by your support team’s smartphones and cameras, or via a GoPro type recording device strapped to your head or body.
Find results and photos at the 2013 Race Results page. Photos can take up to 7 days since over 100,000 photos are shot a race. Results are definitely posted sooner. For 2013, they changed their photo method, so on the Results page, to see your photos, search for your name or bib #, click on your name and you will see a “Race Photos” tab appear.
If you do not have photos under your name, click to try the Timeline here: http://pages.spartanrace.com/timeline.php.
Sports Techie, Race as an individual, as a part of a team or both at Spartan Race. Whatever your level, Spartan Race promises to test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor. I was born a Spartan. These events are both family and kid friendly.
My brothers and I were born at the hospital near our home in Spartan Village, East Lansing Michigan, while my Dad attended Michigan State University and worked at the Athletic department. Needless to say, I bleed Spartan, my newborn baby son Kellan does too, and so will you after finishing the race.
