Spartan Race!

Spartan Race

Crossfit Heat

The Spartan Race is a race series that was started by the same people who created the infamous Death Race, ranked as one of the toughest endurance races on the planet. If you want to get an idea of what the Death Race is, check out http://www.youmaydie.com and the NY Times video on the homepage. The Spartan Race is essentially a mini, more accessible version of the Death Race that was created as a way for people to qualify for the Death Race. The Death Race is very exclusive as it only accepts 100 participants per year, and we want to see what kind of tough people we can pull out of these Spartan Races to compete in the Death Race.

Spartan Race is a 5k run, loaded with crazy obstacles like a fire jump, a snake pit crawl, barbed wire crawl, spear throwing, cargo net climb, 8ft wall, 12ft slippery wall, gladiator pit, etc. These obstacles are designed to test every ounce of your strength, stamina, resilience, and ability to laugh in the face of adversity. If you want to check out footage from our first four races, go to http://www.spartanrace.com, where you will also find out any other information you would need about the race. Also, you can check us out on Facebook by typing in Spartan Race in the search box.

We hereby challenge every Crossfit athlete in the state of Texas to participate and display your level of fitness in our Spartan race. We will be holding a Crossfit Heat, and the fastest time will win an automatic qualifier to the Death Race, a trophy, and bragging rights for the year.

Our first four races have been an immense success, but now it is time for us to really clamp down and focus on our next event, the Texas race. On October 3, 2010, we will be putting on the largest Spartan Race to date, located in Navasota at the Magnolia Hill Ranch. The maximum capacity of participants is 2,500, plus a large spectator draw that will at least double 2,500.

Portions of the proceeds from the race will go to The 100 Club. The 100 Club is an organization devoted to helping the families of firefighters and police officers killed in the line of duty.

Participants have the option of signing up with a team of four or as individuals. Use the promotional code crossfittx when you are signing up, and this will automatically take $10 dollars off each entry fee. Don’t be left out and miss this incredible race, go to http://www.spartanrace.com and sign up today!
