So You Want To Be a Spartan?

OK, I am really excited about this giveaway!

The people from the Spartan Race series have contacted me and wanted to know if I would want to give a free race to one of my readers.

Umm, yes!!!!

Now, I have to admit that I don't think I am much of a run through the mud and fire kind of girl, but as a great friend reminded me today, "let's take the never off the table", so maybe after marathon training and running 26.2 miles...

I am pretty sure that a few of my readers are going to be all over this, but for those of you who know nothing about it, here is there site.

And this is what they say about their race:

Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.

Our events challenge the familiar, today’s perception of normal living and getting you out of your comfort zone! At Spartan Race, we do this everyday and it shapes everything we do.

Having experienced many different racing events, we wanted to make adventure racing more accessible to everyone, but do not be fooled by the word ‘accessible’, as our events have a challenge for everyone’s needs.

Spartan Race now introduces a level for everyone beginning with the entry level Spartan Sprint, intermediate level Super Spartan, the advanced Spartan Beast, and the ‘99.9% need not apply’ extreme level Death Race. 

Whatever your level, Spartan Race will test your strength, stamina, and sense of humor.

Cool, right?  I love the last sentence.

Ok, so this is how it will work.  I added rafflecoper at the bottom of this post.  You will be entered by doing one or all of the things listed below.  Keep in mind, that you can tweet it everyday which will increase your chance to win!  When I pick the winner, I will send you a code that you will use when you register for any open heat in any Spartan Race in the continental US, and your race will be FREE!  It is a one time use though so you can't share it with your friends.

For those of you who can't wait or want to do it but didn't win, here is a 15% off that you can use.  A big Thank You to the folks at Spartan Race!

Good luck my friends!

  1. Love obstacle races. Registered for the Super Hero Scramble as the last big "thing" before Ragnar Keys :-)

  2. I've never done a spartan race before, I'd love to because it seems like it would be challenge and a way to push myself.

  3. Hey I found your blog looking through the Spartan Race Facebook page and was really encouraged just by your title of "Running While Mommy" because I'm not just a runner but a father too! I love how parents still find the time to get a run in and even race to be competitive! I will definitely follow you on FB now! Do you have an Instagram? Plus I would love to win an entry to a Spartan Race!

    1. Hi JJ, thank you! I have quite a few Running While Daddy's who follow me and I love it!!! I do not have an Instagram, but I am thinking it is something I should look into. Good luck with the contest!

  4. My husband runs the race every year, and this year I finally want to be able to run it with him. I've been running 5ks, (with my times dangerously close to his!), so I think I am ready :)

  5. I haven't participated in a Spartan Race yet, but I am itching to!

  6. Haven't ran one yet, but ran the Primal Mud Run last year! Hope to win!

  7. never participated. i'd like to because i feel like i was born to be outside and getting dirty.

  8. My husband and I ran a Sprint this year! We already signed up for next years Sprint, but we are thinking about doing a Super and/or a Beast!
