Out & About: Spartan Race
By Noel Daniel
It’s a run for only the boldest runners, where some races include fire jumps, crawling in mud under barbed wire, wall climbing, spear throws, rope climbs, monkey bars, tractor pulls, diving under water-submerged walls, skipping across stumps in a pond, and even more madness.
And we have our own Spartan proving ground right here in Patterson. Runners from all around gathered to endure the brutal race for any number of benefits such as: the Spartan Race Finishers medal, a trifecta medal wedge piece, free race photos, a Spartan Race t-shirt, a free beer ticket, bragging rights, and a scrape or two.
