Course Description:

Presented by Dan Clark also known as Nitro of American Gladiator fame.
Every city of roses has its thorns, and this weekend they'll all be at the Rose Bowl. It's a stadium that's been hosting epic throwdowns before your mama's, mama was born.
With 5 Super Bowls, 100 Rose Bowls and 1000's of other colossal events, the world's best athletes have charged through the players tunnel as 100,000 cheering fans slammed to their feet.
But on Saturday, Oct 17th, 2015 -- YOU are the athlete. YOU will rumble down the players tunnel into the legendary stadium. YOU will have the chance to follow in the epic badassery that came before you.
But Gladiator is more than just mud. Prepare yourself for 5 kilometers of collective scampering as you bound over walls, conquer the Beast and leap fire on your way to Gladiator Glory at the finish line.
After the event you'll revive you're weary, mud-splattered soul with beer, food, ample live music and Gladiator games as you finish the day in epic OC fashion.
Gladiator Rock’n Run™ is the most insane one day event on the plan brought to you by Dan Clark aka Nitro of the Original American Gladiators. It challenges all participants to conquer extreme obstacles and harsh terrain and to celebrate their conquest with a bad ass post race party filled with music, beer and food.

An obstacle list you might encounter on the course includes:

  • The Pit – Take a plunge into the mysterious depths of this pool of mud.
  • Mud Madness – Slither along on your belly through a trough of mud.
  • Polar Bear Plunge – Blast through a waist-deep icy pool of water.
  • Wall of Fame – Conquer the 8ft. Wall of Fame or face the 4ft Wall of Shame.
  • Terrible Tires – You’ll burn more than rubber going over this knee-high hell
  • Cargo Congo Climb – Scramble up and over massive cargo nets
  • Twinkle Toes – Balance your stuff or fall into the drink and swim to shore.
  • Gladiator BBQ – Fire – Race through fiery flames.
  • Gladiator Bars – Glide across the 30 foot expanse of twisted steel and sex appeal.
  • Trenches of Torment – Crawl through the pitch black under ground trenches.
  • The Beast – Release your inner beast to scale this monster
  • Ring my Bell – Climb up the 14ft hanging rope. Ring the bell and you are dope.
  • Skid Marks – Plummet down a tarp into a muddy bog. (Mud will go places you’ve never dreamed of).
  • Spider Web – Walk, crawl, slither uphill under the widow’s web.
  • Tube Steak – Grovel through the mud and stank to freedom.
  • Swamp Stomp – Scamper across water and rocks
  • Yipee Ki-Yah – Holla like Bruce Willis in “Die Hard” as you swing on a rope across the water.


Award ceremony will take place one hour after last wave.
Top 3 overall male and female Gladiators will receive a sweet award.
Top 3 males and females for each age group will receive a medal.

Dan Clark aka 'Nitro' from the American Gladiators brings you the most insane one day event on the planet - The Gladiator Rock'n Run™.

The course challenges all participants to conquer extreme obstacles and harsh terrain, then to celebrate their conquests with a bad-ass post race party filled with music, beer and food.
Water obstacles won’t be more than waist-high. If there’s an obstacle that’s too much for you, go around. No shame there. Personal safety is the most important thing. But if you’re skipping an obstacle to improve your time – we’re going to give you a Gladiator smack-down with a pugil stick.
The minimum age to race is 14.

Rockers that rumble together - stay together. Create a team during registration process. Then invite all of your friends to join the action-packed, gut-busting, mud-slogging insanity. Together you can share the thrills of victory and spills of defeat. At the end of the day you'll know which friends are truly ""Gladiator Tough.""
