Tagline: You’ll Know at the Finish Line
What It Is: Spartan Race is serious racing, with timed courses ranging from the three-mile Spartan Sprint to the 27-mile Ultra Beast. The obstacles—flipping tractor tires, carrying buckets of sand, hopping from log to log—are basic but brutally taxing.
Defining Trait: Burpees, 30 of them—the penalty for a failed or skipped obstacle.
Why You’ll Love It: Within the series, there’s always a tougher race to try.
Price: From $38
