2014 Spartan Race World Championship plus Giveaway

15. August 2014 09:07 by jennifer | 25 Comments

I did my first Spartan Race in February, 2014. It was a GREAT event. The distance was perfect for me, and the obstacles were challenging, but not too scary. Though all the burpees I did, now those were scary!! Tongue Out

I did see a lot of really great athletes competing on the course, and it's those athletes that are invited to compete in the 2014 Spartan Race World Championship!!

There will be more than 10,000 athletes from 17 countries competing on September 20th in Killington,Vermont!!

There is also a new TV Series showing what it takes to become a Spartan athlete!

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.


Spartan is also offering a great giveaway! A Spartan Cruise out of Miami in March 2015! The giveaway is for 2 people including airfare!! There will be 2 winners.  You can enter HERE!

Have you ever done a Spartan Race?? No? You can win one right here on my blog! Simply leave me a comment letting me know which city you'd race in. You can see the location map HERE. 

I'll pick the winner on AUGUST 22.

Don't want to wait to win? You can use the code SPARTANBLOGGER to save 10% on ANY RACE!!

I was supposed to do the Spartan Sprint in Tampa this year, but had to cancel after I found out I was pregnant.  I'd love to do it again in 2015.  It's supposed to be the best!!!

I would do Mississippi for sure. The cruise looks like a blast.


I've got my eyes on Fenway Park this year.


I'm hoping to run it in Tampa.


Congrats on racing! Sounds like great fun & good luck to all who enter your giveaway

I'm in need of a vacation and one of the Texas sprints would be fun. I'm not much of a runner, but I can handle the obstacles.


I would do the Citi Field sprint! I need to ease into obstacle racing.. lol

I would race at Haspin Acres for the Indianapolis run and love every minute of it.

Looking to do the Mississippi Sprint in Nov. It will be my first and I have worked so hard to get ready!

I would either race in Miami, which is within a short driving distance, or Asheville as part of a trip to see friends and family in SC & NC.


Hubby has wanted to do this for a while. I'd love to make it a birthday gift for him. We'd be in Tampa Smile
