Spartan Race '5k Sprint Series' – Houston TX www.spartanrace.com arrives at the Magnolia Hill Ranch, October 3rd for an epic day-long competition beginning at 10 a.m.
The Spartan Race is an international running series that revives the spirit of an adventurous age. Adventure racers of all stripes will climb, crawl through mud, jump over fire, spear throw, even battle giant Spartan Gladiators with dueling sticks and bravely face a dozen merciless obstacles over a grueling 5 kilometer course that takes its inspiration from Spartan and Navy Seal training, American Gladiator and adventure races. The race will demand every ounce of racers strength, ingenuity and sense of humor. Race designers also include a few undisclosed mystery elements at each venue designed to further challenge competitors tenacity.
Though the Spartan Race draws its inspiration from the fierce, disciplined and ascetic Spartans, it does so with tongue firmly implanted in cheek. Competitors are encouraged to arrive donning their finest tunics, sans weaponry, and whatever else will stoke their spirit of adventure while having the time of their lives. Spartan warriors all maintained perfectly rippled abs, but for those who find themselves a bit soft in the middle at the starting gate the race will also offer prosthetic spray on versions.
The festive event welcomes the public to watch and support their favorite Spartan racer and enjoy live entertainment such as fire breathing, blacksmith, feats of strength and activities such as free archery, spear throw and having your picture taken wearing authentic Spartan gear. Once the top Spartan warriors are crowned at the awards ceremony, post-race festivities will ensue including a hero’s barbeque party.
