The Spartan Obstacle Run is hosted by the University's Tampa Bay Alumni Chapter and cross country team. If you enjoy running or just want to challenge yourself physically, this race is for you. It will include completing a distance of 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles, as well as running through tires, jumping over hay bales and crawling through cargo nets all against the backdrop of the beautiful and historic campus. It is going to be a great day with runners from the community, UT students, family members, faculty, staff, alumni and anyone else that would like to participate. Proceeds support UT cross country scholarships. Don’t miss this fun day for a worthy cause!
