photo spartanrace_zpsb6ed7a80.jpgOn any given weekend, there are probably 20+ road races, 5Ks, etc. in Dallas. But this weekend, Nov. 1 and 2, are the Spartan Races – obstacle races/mud runs that truly challenge your abilities! The races take place in Glen Rose, southwest of Fort Worth. Here’s the lowdown on each one:

Nov. 2 – Spartan Sprint – a 3-mile obstacle course
Nov. 1 – Spartan Beast – a 10-mile obstacle race

These races are pretty expensive – the Beast is running about $185 right now – but if you want to register, you can visit the Spartan website and use the code SPARTANBLOGGER at checkout to get an extra 10 percent off!

Or, you can enter this giveaway. One lucky Fort Worth on the Cheap reader will receive one free entry to any Spartan race of their choice. You can use the code to run in the Dallas event, or use it for an out-of-town race. To enter, fill out the form below. Since online registration must be done for this race by noon on Oct. 31, entries will only be accepted until 9 a.m. tomorrow (Oct. 31). I’ll send the winner an email ASAP!

Boring stuff: Must be a Texas resident, 18+. One entry per person. Good luck!
