Overcoming the Obstacle (Race)!

In the past two years, obstacle racing has risen rapidly as one of the most popular types of races to participate in. No matter the distance or location, there is an obstacle race for everyone; and get ready to get muddy and wet, as most of these races are mud runs! From 5K to half marathon distance (and beyond!) located everywhere from California to Canada, there is no reason to not sign up for one of these races and see what you’re made of!

Sponsored by Reebok, one of the most popular obstacle race around is the Spartan Race. With distances ranging from 3 miles to even a marathon length obstacle race (26.2!), Spartan Race offers up fun and challenging obstacles, mud, awesome medals for each race completed, and the accomplishment you feel after completing this top ranked obstacle race. No matter which distance you start at, you will yearn to earn your Spartan Trifecta Medal! The Spartan Trifecta is earned after completing one of each Spartan Race in one calendar year (Sprint, Super, and the Beast!).

Never done an obstacle race?

Then now is the time! Use this as a motivation to keep going to those workouts, running, Zumba, and keep up with cross-training. Bootique Fitness and their San Diego Personal Trainers will get you ready for Spartan glory in no time. Spoiler alert: Spartan loves burpees!
