By now, most of the members in the fire service are well aware of the growing popularity of the obstacle races. While there are plenty of different styles, one that I am looking forward to hopefully completing within the next year or so is the Spartan Race!
About Spartan Race
Spartan Race is on a 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. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.
Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.
Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.
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.
Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.
Dan Krueger, from SpartanRace.com, is also wanting to spread the word about the World Championship Spartan Race airing on NBC Sports on December 7th. We have already given away one free race registration on our Facebook page at The “Model City” Firefighter, and we will giving away another one shortly. Be sure to visit the website by clicking here and finding a race near you!
Staying fit and in shape is a necessity and very important for those of us who are in the fire service. Our job and duty is to perform in extreme conditions, and what better way to stay in shape and challenge ourselves than to participating in a SPARTAN RACE!
