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.



* WARNING DISCLAIMER ABOUT DAN “NITRO” CLARK:
He’s one of those people who shouldn’t wear spandex anymore. We beg him not to. Sometimes he just won’t listen. We apologize in advance.



WHO CREATED IT?
Dan Clark aka Nitro from the original American Gladiators. He offers no apologies for the pain you will experience, but takes all the credit for how frick’n good you’ll feel when you charge through the finish line arms thrust in the air in victory.

SHOULD I DO IT?
The choice is yours. You can remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, cruising through a mundane existence, like a sheep herded by fate - or you can take control of your destiny and release the beast inside you.

Sheep or lion. You decide.

CAN I DO IT?
You only have to have a desire to compete. It’s not about being the fastest or the best. It’s about doing the best you can. Our limiting beliefs and fears are our only true opponents in life. Conquer one today. Do it now.

WILL IT BE DIFFICULT?

HOW DO I TRAIN FOR GLADIATOR ROCK’N RUN™?

WHAT IS A WAVE START?
Instead of releasing 5000 insane runners at one time we stagger the start times in 30 minute intervals to avoid bottle-necking and waiting at obstacles. Don’t worry – your time doesn’t begin until you cross through the starting line.

WHAT IF I CAN’T DO AN OBSTACLE?
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.
