Share Article

Spartan Race reports on the success of the Spartan Texas Beast and the inspiring achievements of the racers.

On December 31, Spartan Race offers comments on the Spartan Texas Beast obstacle racing event and highlights prominent Spartan racers.

A recent article posted on the Spartan website gives particular focus on some of the most renowned Spartan racers. Jason Rita, the author of the post, affirms that in spite of the prize money waiting for the winner at the finish line, the racers shared a friendly bond as a result of enduring mutual hardship and overcoming grueling obstacles.

Varying the make up of the Spartan Race course, the article notes, serves to keep the death race fresh and unpredictable. The one thing that remains constant for the Spartan Race is the goal to challenge the competitors to bring out their inner strength and push one’s limits. One participant that previously took part in the USAT&F Trail Marathon Championships was subjected to burpees as a penalty for not being able to finish an obstacle.

Sandbag carries, barbed wire, Tyrolean rope traverse are but a handful of the obstacles Spartan competitors were faced with. The article reports that Spartan Race competitor, April Luu, wrote off other mud races and obstacle course racing as a warm up for the greater challenge of the Spartan Race.

Joseph Desena, Spartan Race founder, reflects on the Texas Beast and offers his sentiments. “True accomplishment is achieved only through a true challenge. I enjoy seeing repeat faces attending these events and I know that they too fully embrace the spirit of the Spartan Race.”

Spartan Race, voted Outside Magazine’s Best Obstacle Race in 2012, is the world’s leading obstacle race series and the first of its kind to have global rankings. Spartan Race is a timed event series featuring races at three escalating distances in locations worldwide that culminate in a World Championship Finale with cash and prizes for the champions. While featuring competitive elite heats, Spartan Races are for athletes of all levels and abilities and are geared towards ripping people off their couches and into the outdoors.
