The Gladiator events are designed around an intense medium-distance, 5-7 mile course. Each course incorporates 30+ extreme obstacles with the most challenging being the finale in The Coliseum. The Gladiator courses are designed to test runners’ agility, endurance, mental resolve, and solidarity. In keeping with one of its core principles, The Gladiator will also partner with local children’s charities, giving every participant the ability to directly take part in selecting and supporting a local charity.
The new mud run series will soon be coming to the Springfield, MO, Wichita, KS, and Nashville, TN areas and is expected to draw thousands to participate in its creative combination of obstacles and venues, as well as it’s focus on runners as well as spectators.
“We here at The Gladiator are pumped about our events coming up in 2013. We have been working nonstop to develop obstacles and sign with venues which will give our participants, whether runner or spectator, an excellent value and an awesome time. We are also excited to have the opportunity to support local children’s charities as giving is one of our core principles as an organization”
All obstacles unveiled in The Gladiator mud runs have been designed to provide maximum challenge, safety, and intensity. Venues have been chosen to provide for challenging terrain, good flow, and maximum spectator viewing. Spectators of all ages and fitness levels will have an unprecedented ability to get in on the fun through various family-friendly activities on the event field as well as a front row seat to the dramatic finale in The Coliseum.
Throughout each event day, runners, spectators, volunteers, and sponsors will be partying in the event field while listening to music, watching runners in The Coliseum, eating, and participating in various games and contests.
