Ever wonder what it would be like to compete in a Spartan obstacle race?

The Spartan workout tour will stop in Austin this Saturday. Certified coaches will lead a free workout open to the general public from 9-11 a.m. at Mylo Obstacle Fitness, 5415 McKinney Falls Parkway.

The workout will cover training techniques to prepare athletes to compete in the Spartan race.  Participants will work out alongside pro Spartan elite athletes, and will receive an “I’m Training for a Spartan Race” T-shirt.

Spartan offers three different races – the Sprint, a 3-mile course with about 20 obstacles, done at your own pace; the Super, an 8-mile course with more than two dozen obstacles, on tougher terrain; and the Beast, a 12-mile course with 30 or more obstacles.

To participate in the workout, bring a completed, signed waiver, a water bottle and towel. For more information go here.
