The challenge goes from Newbie to Competitor. You can work out once a week or 7 days a week. All are welcome to run.
What is the difference between Newbie, Beginner, etc.?
I’ve never really done anything like this. I’m doing this for entertainment and really don’t care about my finish time. I just want to challenge myself and have a good time with my friends and the other competitors.
I’m not serious about competing but enjoy a challenge. Obstacle races are new to me but seem like something I’d enjoy. I work out on a regular basis but I’m not as serious as some of the people in the gym. I’ve taken boot camp classes.
I’m in good shape. I like a challenge. I exercise on a regular basis and I consider myself fit. I can run a 5k and I lift weights regularly. I enjoy boot camp classes.
I’m in great shape and I believe I can complete the course without walking. I have completed other obstacle type events (Tough Mudder, Spartan Race, Rugged Maniac) and have done well. Bring it on. I’m up for the challenge.
I’m the fittest of the fit. I train hard. I look at fitness as my job not just some fun activity. I’m willing to push my body to the limits and then some. Quit is not in my vocabulary. I want to compete for the $$$.
