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!

Do it NOW!
