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 25th, 2014 -- 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.

Will you join the battle-hardened warriors of the past by conquering obstacles like Quads of the Gods, Polar Bear Plunge and the Beast?  Or will you be left crying in mud, sucking your thumb, asking for your momma?

To find out, grab all your friends, sign up now and join us in an epic rivalry that dates back to ancient Gladiators, a battle relived every year by Trojans and  Bruins alike. Sierra Nevada beer, food, rock'n roll and Gladiator Glory await!
