PHOTOS: If Spornosexuals Had An Official Sport It Would Be The Spartan Race

Move over, CrossFit. There’s another intense and challenging athletic kid on the block, and his name is Spartan.

He has more edge, loves getting down and dirty and is frankly nicer to look at.

Spartan Races have been going on since the early 2000s, pitting competitors in super intense obstacle courses. You know, things like:

“fire jumps, barbed wire crawls, Herculean hoists and Tyrollean traverses”

Because why the hell not? If you fancy yourself a modern day spornosexual, you’ll want to get all over this. There’s even a gay spinoff.
