Course Description:

Presented by Dan Clark, also known as ""Nitro ""of American Gladiator fame. The Gladiator INVADES Nor Cal for the 6th annual Gladiator Rock'n Run. Like a frenzied start up pivoting before it's IPO, epic badassery awaits for you at Casa De Fruta in Gilroy. You'll still battle fire, mud, ice -- but unlike most races where you emerge with labored breathing, shin splints and a lifeless look in your eye, you'll finish the Gladiator 5 muddy pounds heavier, 3 times richer and helluva lot happier. You'll be tweeting, Google-ing!, Facebook-ing about it so loud the 49ers will think about moving back to Candlestick. So make Poppa-Nitro proud. Throw caution to the wind and prepare yourself for Gladiator Glory by signing up today for the best race in town hell, maybe even the planet!

Gladiator - 3.2 miles, 17 obstacles
This is perfect for athletes of all levels, from first time raers to seasoned vets. 3 miles over diverse terrain and packed with awesome Gladitor obstacles. It is a challenge, but believe in yourself and what you are capable of. You got this.

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.

  • 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.
