Free Spartan Race 2015 giveaway!

Last spring I was contacted by the good people of Spartan Race asking if I would be willing to promote their race on my blog.  In exchange they gave me a free race code to give away to my readers.  They also gave me a code to use for myself, but I was never able to make it to a Spartan Race last year.  Fortunately for you, they have generously offered the same deal for 2015, so here we go...

First of all, for those unaware, Spartan Race is an obstacle race series held all over the United States.  They offer varying lengths, including the Spartan Sprint (3+ miles), the Spartan Super (8+ miles), and the Spartan Beast (12+ miles).

As a new parent, and someone who has spent the entirety of my working life with kids, I'm pleased to see they also offer a Spartan Kids race, with age appropriate obstacles for kids from 4 - 13, and 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Kids Fit Foundation.

Dan the PR man has let me know that they have not been resting easy over at Spartan HQ, and they have a ton of new things in store for 2015.

These include:
  • The first ever Spartan Race Cruise.  In March Spartan Race is sailing to the Bahamas for a Spartan Sprint.  Joe De Sena, Founder and CEO of Spartan Race, will also be along for the ride.
  • Speaking of Joe De Sena, he's launching a podcast called Spartan Up in which he interviews titans of the fitness industry and shares tips for living a fit and active life.
  • Lake Tahoe will host the Spartan World Championship in October.
  • There is a season pass for 2015 which offers great perks.
Here's a map for the locations this year.  If you're in the Philly area, there are plenty of Spartan Races nearby this year, and I hope to see you at one of them.

Now for the fun part.  I'm once again conducting a giveaway for one free entry to any Spartan Race in the continental US in 2015.  Like last time, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me why you want to do the Spartan Race, and a way I can contact you.  Like last time, I'll leave the contest open for a week, and next Saturday night I'll pick a winner.

Good luck, and thanks for reading!
