Grueling Spartan Race returns to Marseilles despite rash outbreak a year ago

Posted by wlpo on September 25, 2014

Want to challenge yourself physically? Sign up for the Reebok Spartan Race this weekend in Marseilles.

Thousands of people are expected to take on the military-style obstacle course. Waves of 250 runners will tackle the eight-mile course every 15 minutes. Organizers think the fastest time to finish the course should be an hour and 20 minutes.

You can race either Saturday or Sunday. It’s at The Cliff’s Off-Road Park on 2625th Road in Marseilles.

Last year several competitors complained of getting a rash during the Spartan Race. Race organizers say they’ve changed the course to try and stay away from potential problems this year.
