Last year, I watched my husband run his first ever Spartan race in Tampa and I can’t wait to see him do it again this year. I was so impressed with the strength and perseverance I saw at the event. It was also exciting to be a spectator, when I am normally the one out there running a race.
For 2015, Reebok Spartan Race is back with bigger and better news. The 2015 Season Pass is now available. If you plan to participate in more than one event, this is the way to go. Unlimited racing, special travel discounts, free bag check, race any heat, and more. My cousin Mallory and her husband Sean live in California and they just bought the season pass for this year. They are big into Spartan and love participating.
The 2015 World Championship Spartan Race will take place in Lake Tahoe, CA this year and the first ever Spartan cruise is happening in March. And for fans of the race AND Joe De Sena’s SPARTAN UP! book, he has a podcast launching soon. If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it. It’s a great read – full of insight into the event, how it’s grown over the years, and some of the amazing people who have taken part in it.
Race distances and obstacles vary by location. Our local event in Tampa takes place at Raymond James Stadium and part of the event is inside the stadium. There are also 3 event types – Sprint (3+ miles, 15+ obstacles), Super (8+ miles, 20+ obstacles), and Beast (12+ miles, 25+ obstacles).
