What is the 'Spartan Death Race'?
from The Houston Press
You know those "adventure" races like the Tough Mudder and the Warrior Dash? The Spartan Death Race is like the Ironman version of those. The entry fee is $600. The course is 50 miles long (or longer). Last year, the race's eighth year, 344 ran the course, but only 51 finished. That's less than 15 percent. And in addition to the physical challenges, which the contestants aren't informed of until they actually set foot on the course, there are also mental challenges. Past contestants have had to memorize the names of the first ten U.S. Presidents or a Bible verse, translate a Greek saying, and more.
