What: Spartan Race, Super Distance. That’s 8+ miles with 15+ obstacles in the mountains of North Carolina.
When: August 29, 2015, 8:00 a.m. (see below for F3 team start time)
Why: Because we have been waiting for this race for 2 years and it will be totally CSAUP!
Event Q: Mini-Me out of NoCo is the F3 Team Captain.
Ready for a challenge? This race is it! We are talking 8+ miles of grind. Don’t be the guy who regrets passing up this opportunity to test yourself and see what your made of. The Spartan Super is Spartan’s intermediate distance race. It’s hard. And, honestly, I think this one (in the mountains of North Carolina) will be harder than most. That’s why you should do it. After countless hours in the gloom with your F3 brothers you are ready and you will finish this race. Tell the stories for the rest of your life.
If that isn’t enough, Asheville and a world of craft breweries await only a few miles down the road. This is a great destination race. Make a weekend of it and bring the family.
Here is what you need to do:
1) Go register at this link: http://www.spartan.com/en/race/detail/837/overview
2) Sign on under the “F3” team name: George Bell (aka Mini-Me) is team captain.
3) Register under the 8:00 a.m. start time
4) Post a comment on this page letting the world know you are up for the challenge
5) Discounts? We don’t have one arranged with Spartan. Google the web and see what you can find.
For those interested in a little information about the race venue, here is the summary Spartan provides:
“Welcome to Grove Stone & Sand Company. Grove Stone is one of the grittiest courses in the Spartan venue. With some of the steepest slopes and rocky terrains throughout the venue, it’s as difficult slowing down while running as it is to speed up. Grove Stone has a variety of washed and screened granite materials which are traditionally used to help with building needs, but will be used for primal Spartan challenges during the race.”
Here is a link to Grove Stone & Sand Company if you would like a look at the venue.
Yeah — so get your head around that. Then go sign up.
If you have any question please post in the comments. I will monitor this post and answer anything I can. Also, feel free to email me at F3Spooky@gmail.com.
That is all.
