Luminox, the Official Timekeeper for Spartan Philippines
The Spartan Race is far from your ordinary race. It is designed with countless unique and challenging obstacles. It combines running, climbing, crawling, and lifting. Imagine possibly getting drenched, dried by the sun, then soaked in mud all over again – all throughout destinations that feast your eyes. Throughout the course you’ll test your balance, endurance, and overall strength like you’ve never seen yourself before. You’ll conquer the race with an exciting fire jump at the end!
Spartan is known to be full of surprises. Each race is a different environment that will have you wondering what kind of atmosphere you are going to face next. On one race you’ll be running over volcanic ash, and on the next race you’ll be coursing through a forest under the rainfall. Expect to come face-to-face with bodies of water, uphill and downhill terrain, or just keep your mind open and cross the bridge when you get there because no one knows what they’ll be throwing in next.

He must know his strengths and his weaknesses to allocate the right amount of energy for the varying obstacles. Thus, time spent for each obstacle is Essential in his finishing time.

The Spartan Sprint held in Foressa Balamban was my first ever Spartan Race. The course started off an uphill run with steep terrain. It was a tough start but very challenging for first-time racers like me. Out of the 21 brutally hard obstacles, I missed two of them (the spear throw and rope climb), and did a total of 60 burpees. I was pretty proud of myself that I completed the race and had the best time even though I was literally covered in mud at the finish line. With no doubt, I fell in love with Spartan Race and would definitely do it again. Aroo!

The race was always I wanted in the first place since the challenges tested my physical abilities as to fitness. The opportunity to represent Luminox added my drive to pursue greater heights for it is impossible to finish the race without my head being focused in the game. It was not an easy feat but the experience was truly exciting and worthwhile. Aroo!

Spartan Race held in Foressa, Cebu last June 16, 2018 was my greatest. It was my favorite course amongst the three races I’ve joined so far. The rigorous trails were challenging and demanded the best of it competitors. Composed of steep hills, muddy and swamp like paths went on forever and made me feel the race would never end. But giving up was not an option. Pure determination and positive thinking fueled my desire to finish the race. I’m so thankful to Luminox Philippines for making me part of their team and for taking care of us before and after the race.
