Try It! Gladiator Rock'n Run Comes to Pittsburgh

Last year I had a chance to participate in my first obstacle mud run. While most of the time I was scared, unhappy and uncomfortable at the end of the race I was pretty damn proud of myself.

Do you want that feeling? I'm here to help. I am holding in my hot little blogging hands a free pass to the Gladiator Rock'n Run that is happening in just outside of Pittsburgh on September 20!

Excited? Here's a scary photo of people happily jumping through flames.

Luckily mud isn't flammable. 

If you're staring at this image thinking "OMG! That could be me!" Then you need to sign up for this race. The promise "a memory that will echo into eternity." Damn.

Here's the scoop:

Former American Gladiator Dan “Nitro” Clark has organized an obstacle course race fit for only the most daring competitors– the Gladiator Rock’n Run.  This extreme, 15-obstacle challenge will be returning to the Steel City Raceway, 290 Story Road in Export, PA, on Saturday, September 20. The first wave of participants will begin at 8 a.m. with waves going off every half hour until 12:30 p.m. (competitive wave at 8:30 a.m.)
The course challenges all participants to conquer extreme obstacles and harsh terrain, then to celebrate their conquests with a post race party filled with music, beer and food. Entry fee is $65 until September 12. Late Entry is $75 until September 19 and Late Late Entry is $90 the day of the event, if spots are still available.
During the 3.5 mile course, participants will race through fiery flames in the Gladiator BBQ, blast through a waist-deep icy pool of water in the Polar Bear Plunge and slither along on their bellies through a trough of mud in the Mud Madness Challenge. There are also two nightmare mystery obstacles, and many other thrilling feats. Those too skeptical to participate are still invited to come check it out— the course was built to accommodate spectators.
Gladiator Rock’n Run organizer, Dan “Nitro” Clark, says that while the course might sound intimidating, he created the run to keep people healthy and fit, and encourages people with varying fitness levels to come out and give it a try.
“The inspiration for Gladiator Rock’n Run arose from my desire to create an unforgettable fitness experience that participants would not only come back to year after year, but would also tell their friends about,” said Clark. “It’s an extension of my life’s passion to put America on the path to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life.”
A portion of this year's proceeds from The Gladiator Rock’n Run will benefit Talk About Curing Autism (TACA).
