thebeast-35Spartan Race is always looking for GREAT sponsors.  We aren’t a “mud run” or an “event” we’re a race in the emerging sport of obstacle racing.  We care about our athletes, we tell their stories, prepare them for races with training and nutrition, and look to encourage a healthy lifestyle that can be shared and appreciated in families and communities.  Our goal is to help all our athletes find their finish line.

We have a FB page and Twitter account where we talk about workouts of the day and ways to stay motivated and strong, we blog about our athletes and tell our event stories on our Spartan TV channel and Radio show.

What are we looking for?  Brands that share in the passion, performance, competitive spirit, and the forever living in the moment attitude that Spartans have!  Our athletes are defining our emerging sport of obstacle racing and we want strong sponsors to be a part of that evolution.

We would like to hear from YOU, the Spartan Army, as to who you might know, who youthebeast-37might be able to suggest, and who you would like to see Spartan Race build a continuing and forging relationship with going forward.

So what can you do?  If you work for, have a connection to, or a relationship with a company that fits that description, please email sponsors@spartanrace.comand be sure to include:

1. Name of the company.

2. Point of contact name.

3. Contact number and email.

4. How you know the point of contact, if it isn’t you.

5. YOUR contact info.

A warm accepting lead is the best way to introduce a new brand to our amazing platform of Spartan Race.

What’s in in it for you?  If the sponsorship becomes executed, you and a Guest will receive a Free Season Pass for the 2012 upcoming Spartan Race Season!  Not too shabby…

July 10th we hit the air waves again to talk all things Spartan!  This show ended up longer than our normal show.  We talk about Utah and Hobie Call’s triumphant return, the Kids Race, the 2011 Death Race, and Carrie aka Shawty has officially joined the 2012 race and is looking to raise some serious money for some Chicked charities.  The Beast is coming up and the Spartan Chicks will be there in full force and with a UNIFORM that will be available for sale soon!  Katy McCabe, of Team Glamazon Death Race fame joined us for an impromptu interview and we even talked about the amazing Women’s World Cup soccer game today!  Big shout out to goalie Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, Megan Rapinoe and the other ladies of the National Team – Congrats!

Spartan Race’s first blog about the event is also available HERE which outlines the event and challenges in more detail. The Death Race Episode from Hot Seat Media will go live July 16 at 8 PM EST. Visit for more details!

by Maurya Scanlon MScanMy family lives in Virginia.  (How convenient) Going to this race was like a homecoming of epic proportions. I kid you not, folks. Add my excitement over running another Spartan Race with getting good daughter points for visiting my parents on Father’s Day Weekend, and that equals the happiest MScan ever in the world. And a very happy DadScan.  We talk about the VA race and new champion Quentin Leadbeter on our most recent Spartan Radio Broadcast!  Check it out!  (It’s available on iTunes too… search Spartan Radio)  We also talk Toronto, Death Race, and random humor courtesy of Shawty, Jim and me.

Shawty Spartan

Listen up!! BREAKING NEWS!  Shawty and MScan are going to be invading the airwaves (and your smart phones) once a week with ALL things Spartan!  LIVE! Spartan Nation – this will be your weekly fix of Spartan news, interviews, highlights, stories, and what’s coming down the pipeline!  The Average Guy Podcaster Jim Collison helps us kick off our inaugural show that we’ll be posting later this weekend that included all the deets so you can get connected and stay that way!

So, let’s be honest, we’re chicks and we have sooo much to talk about…


And talking is way easier than typing when our arms aren’t working after the WOD’s we feature.  On our first show we talk about the WOD 30 Day Challenge featuring Jason Jaksetic the Barn Beast and Carrie Adams Shawty Spartan that’s gaining some serious momentum and leaving a path of blood, sweat, and tears (maybe a little puke) as it moves into day 11.  We fight the urge to do burpees just thinking about it!  The movement inspired MScan to join and to “Spartan Up” so she can run the Beast in August and a marathon in December – both events with Shawty by her side.  She is an example of our “Get Spartan Chicked” movement that we highlight every Tuesday!
