Spartan Race has races all over the U.S., and it doesn't matter if you're in a rural area or an urban area. The races are all over the place, so consider signing up. There are also races inside of MLB ball parks, which give you the chance to run throughout the park and even on the field. I got to run on the warning track at Fenway.
The news recently is that Marriott is now the official Global Hotel Partner of Spartan Race. Marriott Rewards is offering Spartan Race participants around the world exclusive, members-only tips, perks, and benefits.
If you're traveling far for a race, or just want to make a weekend of it, stay with Marriott near the location of your race and earn rewards. I like to book a hotel room the night before a race when the race is a couple hours away. It's more convenient that way so I don't have to drive a long ways for a 9 AM start time.
You can join for free as a new member of Marriott Rewards where you'll get a race registration discount, free VIP bag check, and a $5 coupon towards Spartan Race merchandise.
There are a ton of new races for 2017 and there are season passes for unlimited race entries too. With the season pass you can race as many times as you want.
Do yourself a favor - put on your big boy pants or big girl pants and sign up for a race. I'm the first to admit I don't have a tough mindset, but I feel #unstoppable after finishing a Spartan.
So get the lowest rate on your Marriott stay at participating properties near Spartan Race locations. Here in the Boston area there's a handful not too far from Fenway where I'm planning to do the race. Chances are you'll find some Marriott locations close to you too.
Now... who wants to win stuff? The folks at Spartan Race and I have partnered up to offer up a free entry to any 2017 Spartan Race in the continental U.S. AND either a $50 Airbnb or Hotels.com gift card. That's a total value of about $250!
Note: The code will work one time for any 2017 open heat (non-confirmed start time) in the continental U.S.
