Hurricane Heat AvailableRun with the Spartan race Founders & Staff
The Spartan Hurricane Heat is a special opportunity that gives athletes the chance to run with the Founders and staff of Spartan Race in a unique and memorable way. To celebrate our season-ending Texas Beast, we'll be running the first Hurricane Heat on a Beast course in 2012, on Friday evening, December 7th.
We'll run the course backwards, sideways, or while carrying our buddies, but one thing is for certain: no two Hurricane Heats will ever be the same. There are no timing chips, no bib numbers, no bells and whistles, just a true Spartan-style workout that represents what we're all about…getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start. You'll be put on a team, and you'll rely on that team to ensure that you finish as a team.
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.
Start time: Arrive Friday evening, December 13th, no later than 6:00pm. Be dressed and ready to go, we'll be heading out on course at 6:30pm SHARP. Don't be late! It will get dark quickly, so headlamps, glowsticks and warm clothing are mandatory, so please come prepared.
