What is the Spartan Race?

According to Wikipedia

Spartan Race is a series of obstacle races of varying distance and difficulty ranging from 3 miles to marathon distances. They are held in US and have been franchised to 30 countries including Canada, South Korea, Australia and several European countries. The series include the Spartan Sprint, the Spartan Super, the Spartan Beast, and the Spartan Ultra.

These obstacles included in the races are mostly ancient Greek themed. Obstacles like the "Herculean Hoist," or even the "Tyrolean Traverse." Obstacles even include having to throw ancient Greek weapons like spears.

This race becomes more an more popular each year. So much so, that much of this years event is already sold out. But, a few of the 2021 Spartan Race events are still available.
