Gladiator Rock'n Run - Nor Cal

  • Joseph D. Grant Regional Park 18405 Mt Hamilton Rd Mt Hamilton, CA, 95140 United States (map)



Presented by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro of American Gladiator fame. The Gladiator returns to San Jose for third annual Nor Cal Bash.

Like a frenzied start up pivoting before it's IPO we are completely overhauling our course and littering it with new obstacles before we let our greedy Gladiators charge forward with a hostile take over.

You'll still battle fire, mud, ice and scale mountains, 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, Yahoo-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, but who has time to Google it?


First wave goes off @ 8:00am Saturday. You select your wave time during the registration process. Waves are capped at 300 runners. We recommend you arrive at least an hour before your wave time begins.
