If you’ve ever watched the show American Gladiators, you know the tournaments they had were fierce and competitive. Contestants competing against the show’s gladiators had to have strength, agility, and savvy if there was any hope of them winning. Former American Gladiator Dan Clark, also known as “Nitro,” decided to create an event that would give regular people the chance to have a taste of what it was like to compete on that show. From this idea, Gladiator Rock’n Run was born! If you will be at any of the places to stay in Mountain View CA this June and want to participate in a fun and challenging event, then sign up for Gladiator Rock’n Run!
The run consists of a 5k course with 17 different and challenging obstacles in between. Want to know what you’re in for? Obstacles include mud, a hill of tires, icy water, 8-foot high walls, and many more! Contestants compete in “waves” or groups that start every 30 minutes. If you want to get creative, feel free to dress up in a crazy costume! There will even be a costume contest where you can win prizes. After the run, join your fellow contestants at the post event party to celebrate. All participants age 21 and over will receive a free beer, a t-shirt, a “Gladiator Tough” finishers medal, and more!
If you’re still not convinced that Gladiator Rock’n Run will be an amazing experience, consider the fact that it benefits a great cause. TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) is a non-profit organization that focuses on supporting and educating families who have been affected by autism. TACA works hard to help those who have been recently diagnosed with autism by helping them receive beneficial treatments as soon as possible. The organization also wishes to help children receive an early diagnosis so they can improve and possibly even recover from their autism symptoms. These are just a few of the things TACA does to support these families. At this event, you will not only push yourself to the limit, but you will have a fun and rewarding experience.
