We love a good fitness event here at Social 101, especially when it has a quirky twist. Sure a 7K run is impressive on its own, it is however exponentially more impressive when there are 30+ obstacles thrown in for good measure! With all that in mind, Spartan Race, is right up our street and ticks all the boxes.
