Hurricane Heat AvailableRun with the Spartan race Founders & Staff

Hurricane HeatThe Spartan Hurricane Heat gives athletes the chance to meet and run with the Founders of Spartan Race in a unique and memorable way.  You'll be put on a team and you'll finish as a team.  No timing chips, no clock, no bells and whistles.  No one gets left behind.  It's simply a Spartan-style workout that represents what our company and our athletes are all about… getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start.

After an epic event in 2011,  the Midwest Hurricane Heat will be again held on Friday night (head lamps and glow sticks required!).   We'll run the course backwards, sideways, or while carrying our buddies, but one thing is for certain:  this one is going to be EPIC!

Start time: Arrive Friday evening prior to 6:00pm, and be ready to go at 6:30pm SHARP. Don't be late!  It will be dark when we finish, so come prepared.  

Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dogtags, a finisher shirt, a Hurricane Heat badge, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.
