Another race for our active, fun-loving members. This meetup was submitted by one of our members Teresa :) ! Here is her original message:
The Spartan Sprint is coming to the Carolinas on the weekend of March 22 & 23, 2014 at the Whitewater Center. I want to try to create a team so we can encourage, help, and motivate each other to get through it together! This will be the first time I will be participating, but it gives me a reason to get back into shape after having 2 kids. There's plenty of time to train/work out to get yourself ready for this challenge. I'm hoping to do this on Saturday, around 9am.
If the $60 early bird rate is too steep for you, you can do what I did - sign up as a volunteer and race for FREE! :) They have a whole list of things they will need help with. All I'm doing is stuffing packets for 3 hours on the Friday prior, and getting a free race out of it!
For those of you who have no idea what this is, the Spartan Sprint is basically a 4-mile, (often muddy) obstacle course that is designed to challenge you physically and mentally. They have obstacles such as Fire Jump, Barbed wire crawl, spear throw, wall climbs, etc. Those who register get:
- a Spartan Race T-Shirt
- Spartan Race Finisher Medal
- One free beer (must be 21 or older) for select USA events only
- Food Vendors
- Awards Ceremony
- Top 3 Male/Female finishers receive free entry into a Super Spartan of their choice
Volunteers get free food too, from what I've read! :) Check out everything you need to know here:
