Are You Up for a Challenge? And a Giveaway!

Are you bored with just running races? Have you concurred the marathon? Are you looking for an endurance and strength test? Look no further. This is the Tampa Special Ops Spartan Sprint taking place on February 15th Raymond James Stadium.


This four mile run is “a mix of mud and gnarly outdoor obstacles combined with the challenge of the signature Spartan stadium obstacles all with maneuvers and strategy created by Special Ops Forces.”  Runners will be released in waves of 200 every 15 mins in five different groups.

SR_Generic_560x400_2Those registered will receive a t-shirt, beer ticket (those 21 and up of course), and maybe some free mud. Finishers will receive a unique Special Ops Spartan Sprint Medal and bragging rights for accomplishing the most unique Spartan event. Navy Federal Credit Union will also be providing cash prizes to the top three male and top three female competitors. First prize is $2000.

Kids can also join in the action. Those ages 3-14 can participate in the Jr. Spartan or Varsity Spartan races. They will enjoy the thrill of the run, a variety of scaled down obstacles, and a  mini festival area with games and challenges. The course is about a half mile for Jr. Spartans and a full mile for Varsity Spartans. Each child receives a T-shirt and finisher’s medal. 100% of the Jr. Spartan race proceeds go to the Kids Fit Foundation, a leader in the movement to help children learn life-long health and fitness habits.

    I want to win because I missed the race the last time it was here in Boston. I had formed a team with a bunch of people and ended up sick at home, so I have my eyes on the next race.

    I want to do the Spartan because I did it a couple months ago and hope to again soon! Love races!

    I want to do the Spartan Race in order to earn the highly coveted trifecta medal. Plus the medals look awesome hanging on the tree at Christmas time.
