Have you ever participated in one of those obstacle course races? I won’t lie — I’ve never had the desire to do a Tough Mudder or Spartan Race (which is apparently even harder than Tough Mudder) because I’m too worried about injuring anything that could hamper my running and yoga activities. But if you ARE into obstacle course races (and are far more badass than I am) I have one FREE race entry to give away for any Western Canadian Reebok Spartan Race in an open heat PLUS a discount code you can use for 15% off any race! (See below for how to enter).
What’s a Spartan Race?
A Spartan Race is a an obstacle course race consisting of three distances (sprint: 3 miles and 15 obstacles; super: 8 miles and 20 obstacles; and beast: 12 miles and 25 obstacles) and various challenging obstacles that include elements of fire, water, mud, barbed wire and something called Hell on Earth… whatever that is. Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?
Here’s more info from their website:
