Has anyone out there ever done a Spartan Race? I have yet to do one, but it seems to be next step in the logical progression of foot races. First you start off with your local 5K, then move up to the 10K. After getting those 5K and 10K races under your belt, you step up to the half marathon. A full marathon will soon follow. And of course you’ll want to be faster for each of those distances. But, once you get bored of the road, you’ll opt for some trail runs.. and if your out on the trails anyway, you might as well add in some obstacles, right? I’ve only done one mud run, and it was a lot of fun. I can see the appeal of pushing your body a little bit further with these down and dirty obstacles. I asked around my social network, and got some pictures of friends who have competed and completed a Spartan Race… Don’t they look like they’re having fun?
Most sporting and athletic events has some sort of “hat trick“, and for “Spartans”, it’s known as the Trifecta. Competitors can earn a trifecta medal by completing the three race distances in one calendar year – Spartan Sprint, Spartan Super, and Spartan Beast. You get a pretty nifty medal for completing the Trifecta, too.
If you really want a challenge, how about doing completing a Trifecta in ONE WEEKEND? For those of you still needing to make summer vacation plans, the Hawaii Spartan Race Trifecta Weekend (16-17 August 2014) might be right up your alley. Races are about half full right now, with Trifecta registration currently at $139. But you need to act fast, as prices go up at the start of each new month.
