Lincoln is hosting the Spartan Sprint, an obstacle course racing series, this weekend.
The Saturday race, which is roughly three miles, features more than a dozen obstacles and plenty of mud. More than 2,500 people are registered.
Runners will receive a finisher's medal, T-shirt, a free beer ticket for those 21 and older and, according to the website, “bragging rights” and “stories to tell.”
The race starts at 8 a.m. at the Abbott Sports Complex in Lincoln. It is $100 to sign up. Online registration closes Wednesday. You can sign up in person the day of the event.
Those who want to watch must purchase a ticket for $20 online or $25 in cash on site.
