The SMACKANISTAS consider ourselves a group of highly competitive athletes. After all we have an Olympian, Boston Qualifiers, All-American Titles and Triathlon Pro Cards on our collective resume. So when we saw the Alpha Warrior video, we were all humbled by the physical (not to mention the mental) challenge that such a tough event presents:
Alpha Warrior is a first of its kind event featuring 30+ extreme obstacles, 16 insane structures, and boasting, “No mud. No miles. No mercy.” When we heard the event is coming to San Diego on June 15th and 16th we jumped for the opportunity to work with something this badass!
With the exception of elite waves, Alpha Warrior is not a timed race, rather a way for individuals and teams to challenge themselves physically and mentally by attempting a series of unique and challenging obstacles that have never been seen before. Including obstacle names such as the “Spider Wall,” the “Radial Rings,” the “Gut Buster” and the “Sea of Ropes,” the Alpha Warrior event is about having fun and attempting obstacles that will push individuals to new limits mentally and physically–a nice change of pace from racing after that next PR or running in circles! The Alpha Warrior is a (tough) way to get outside and play!
We love Alpha Warrior’s 100% spectator friendly format which offers friends and family the unique opportunity to move through the entire obstacle course to cheer on their family and friends as they conquer the course! Everyone gets a close and upfront view of the action!
The most thrilling obstacle of all is named “Alcatraz,” and features a 3-story, multiple-level series of obstacles that takes participants 30 feet in the air over a trapeze net while spectators are able to watch from underneath. (No pressure, right?) The objective is to complete each obstacle on the course and finish with a 100% completion rate to become a PROVEN Alpha Warrior.
And if that’s not enough to get you to sign up and ready to head to your nearest playground to be a warrior in training, the event will also raise funds for Wounded Warriors and will feature Wounded Warrior participants and volunteers.
Registration is guaranteed to sell out! To register, spectate or volunteer sign up here!
Oh and did we mention that there will be beer?
See you on June 15th and 16th!
