There are three levels of Spartan races held at various locations throughout the country.. There's the Spartan Sprint, a 3+ mile race with at least 15 obstacles, the Super Spartan consisting of 8+ miles through at least 20 obstacles, and the Spartan Beast race consisting of 12+ miles through no less than 25 obstacles.
And if that isn't enough, there's also the Spartan Death Race being held this June 21st in Pittsfield, VA, which they cheerfully claim as making "giving birth look like a walk in the park." I don't even want to know what's involved in that one.
The Spartan Race Series comes to Northern California this August 10th with a Spartan Beast race in Monterey.
