Spring fever can make people do a lot of crazy things, like skinny dipping or signing up for an intense obstacle course.
Spartan Races have some challenging courses coming up this year that will have even the toughest warrior begging for mercy!
These events will be taking place across Canada, the US and the UK from now until December 2012. January saw Southern California residents test their mettle, while Florida and Arizona participants tried their best in February.
Those who think they are worthy in South Carolina can join in the fun on March 24 or 25. Registration is open until March 21st, with a mere $100 entrance fee for the Saturday event, or $85 for Sunday.
Monitor your progress throughout the course with a rugged fitness watch, like the Garmin Forerunner 910XT. Keep track of your pace during the 5K run, or watch your heart rate spike after each of the 10 obstacles.
With 35 races scheduled for 2012 alone, there is bound to be one nearby. If you think you would rather train this year to be in top form next year, check out the 2013 dates already in place!
