Equipped with spears, shields, and sandals, Roman gladiators battled beasts in the city's dusty arenas. Drop the armor, add a ton of mud, and relocate to Cali, and you've got the Gladiator Rock'n Run, an amped-up ode to the age-old tradition. For $32 (regularly $65), today's deal gets you entry to this down-and-dirty 6K. Lace up on Sunday, May 20 for a dash through 17 grueling obstacles in Joseph D. Grant Regional Park. Suit up in an event T-shirt, then scale a monster wall, plunge into an icy pool of water, and barrel through a tire course. Beyond the finish line lies the post-race party, where you'll show off your brand-new Gladiator Tough medal, toast your fellow competitors with a beer, rock out to tunes from three live bands, and get down and even dirtier in the Rock'n Rumble Pit. With mud this deep and hills this steep, modern-day gladiators will want to leave their strappy sandals at home.
