Since 2010, athletes have been pushing themselves through some of the world’s toughest obstacle courses. Considered by most, a ‘true’ adventure race with a sprint (3+ miles), super (8+ miles) or beast (12+ miles) length to test anyone physically and mentally. With mud, water and other obstacles you’ll feel like you’ve accomplished a great task by the finish line. There’s even events for kids that allow the entire family to get involved. So who is considered the world’s best obstacle race? The Spartan Race. You’ll learn a little bit more about why this race is considered the world’s best and I’ll share a special 20% off code good until March 13th.

The Spartan Race Details

What’s become a cult of sorts really just seems to be an adrenaline junkies relay race. It all depends on the length of the event and how many obstacles you want to put yourself through. The sprint is a 3+ mile long course with typically 15+ obstacles to overcome. The super is an 8+ mile long course with typically 20+ obstacles to overcome. Finally, there’s the beast which is a 12+ mile long course with 25+ obstacles to overcome. These have become quite popular in the cross-fit communities as another way to test your physical capabilities.
