    Has anyone done a Spartan Race?

    I'm doing one for the first time in Nov 16th at Fenway Park in Boston.

    What did you wear? Especially what kind of shoes?

    Any overall tips/advice?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean Spartan Race?
    Wear shoes that will be ok and not too heavy if they get waterlogged.
    Clothes - I recommend long wool pants and a parka. ;-)
    Seriously, wear whatever common sense dictates, appropriate to the weather.
    Have fun!

    I've done spartan spaces. The trick is to use a lot of touille.

    I wore regular running shoes. They will be water logged and muddies after so I used ones I didn't care about using again. Also, don't wear cotton, it just makes you heavy. I wore socks and undies that were like sporty, I don't know the material exactly.

    I found this helpful blog:

    It was hardddd, and totally worth it!
