    I’ve got a perspective from the Canadian Spartan Race in Ottawa last year. The video seems to be a cmapliotion of the different levels of racing. For us, the race took place in 40 degree (celcius) heat, no water stations on the course, on a ski resort (up and down ski hills). There was barbed wire, mud, water, climbing and burpees if you failed any task. The gladiators and jumping fire at the end. It is TOUGH, but was definitely fun, and you walk away with a great medal. If you are top in your heat, you move on with a free entry to the next event, up to the death race.Good luck deciding whether to sign up!
