Gladiator Rock'n Run - San Diego


Hosted by Dan "Nitro" Clark Contact Host

Ticket Information


Event Description


The San Diego Gladiator promises to be the biggest, baddest, muddiest event ever with 3 different race distances to choose from.  Regardless of the distance you pick - You'll battle mud, fire and ice as you forge your way through awesome obstacles over diverse terrain. Gladiators will climb sheer walls, slither across muddy fields crisscrossed with barbed wire and rocket down a 100 foot water slide into a pool of mud all in the pursuit of Gladiator Glory.

You'll bound through windows of a broken down paintball fortress and scamper across a concrete jungle littered with the remnants of countless battles — among other obstacles — before you conquer the Beast then charge through the finish line hands thrust in the air in glorious triumph proving once and for all you are a GLADIATOR BADASS. 

After the event, you'll celebrate like a Gladiator God and rejuvenate your weary, mud-splattered soul with beer, food and rock'n roll while you share your spoils of victory with fellow Gladiator combatants.
