Have you been flexing your muscles in preparation for this year’s Spartan Race? Taking place on the 15th and 16th of September, this is the ultimate race challenge. Says Spartan,
“Spartan is more than a race; it’s a way of life. We believe that you can’t have a strong body without a strong mind, that you can’t grow without pressure, that obstacles help shift our frame of reference and make us more resilient.”
