American Gladiator Dan Nitro
Clark has organized an obstacle course race fit for only the most daring
competitors the Gladiator Rockn Run. This extreme, 17-obstacle
challenge will be taking place at the Stoney Creek Metropark, 4300 Main Park
Road in Shelby Township, onSaturday, August 17. The first wave will begin at8 a.m.
challenges all participants to conquer extreme obstacles and harsh terrain,
then to celebrate their conquests with a post race party filled with music,
beer and food.
During the 3.5
mile course, participants will race through fiery flames in the Gladiator BBQ,
blast through a waist-deep icy pool of water in the Polar Bear Plunge and
slither along on their bellies through a trough of mud in the Mud Madness
Challenge. There are also two nightmare mystery obstacles, and many other
thrilling feats. Those too skeptical to participate are still invited to come
check it out the course was built to accommodate spectators.
Rockn Run organizer, Dan Nitro
Clark, says that while the course might sound intimidating, he created the run
to keep people healthy and fit, and encourages people with varying fitness
levels to come out and give it a try.
for Gladiator Rockn Run arose from my desire to create an unforgettable
fitness experience that participants would not only come back to year after
year, but would also tell their friends about, said Clark. Its an extension
of my lifes passion to put America on the path to a happier, healthier, and
more fulfilling life.
If the thought
of a mud-slinging, fire-jumping obstacle course doesnt sound appealing, the
after party probably will! The after party, also know as the Bad-Ass Party
will include three bands, food, beer, and muddy Gladiator Rockn Run
participants receiving awards for best times and costumes.
Rockn Run benefits Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), an organization dedicated
to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. For
families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the
cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments.
obstacles are too much to handle, you can always go run another boring long
distance run, said Clark. Gladiator Rockn Run isnt for everyone. Its for
those who are gladiator tough and dare to be different.
