You are part of ASIA HH-004 (SINGAPORE) 2016 come prepared for the storm!
For those of you that don't already know, the Hurricane Heat started in August of 2011, when Hurricane Irene forced the cancellation of our Sunday program at Amesbury, Massachusetts. Even with thousands of bummed out racers, no one was more devastated than our founder, Joe De Sena. So, he gathered 150 athletes and Spartan staffers at 5:30am on Saturday morning, handed them some sandbags, did a boatload of burpees, and proceeded to spend more than 3 hours covering less than 4 miles. Needless to say, there were some very tired people when we got done.
30 days later, we decided to have a Hurricane Heat at every event in 2012, and we've kept that tradition going ever since.
So… here’s the plan:
Everyone should arrive at THE FINISHING ARCH on Sunday Morning (20 Nov 2016) no later than 0745hrs. Be at the registration entrance at THE FINISHING ARCH ready to go. We'll be checking your equipment and warming up at 0730hrs. The event will commence at 0800hrs sharp. Be dressed and ready to go.
All Hurricane Heaters should meet at THE FINISHING ARCH and wait for others to arrive. Our Hurricane Heat Leaders (Krypteias) will be there to greet you. Look for other people arriving for ASIA HH-004 (SINGAPORE) 2016. Say hello.
Below, you will find the mandatory gear list.
You and/or your teammates MUST bring these items with you on Sunday.
Mandatory Gear List:
*Each team that does not have a required item will start their day with many, many burpees.
It's going to be wet and muddy, and it may be chilly. Please come prepared. Bring a change of clothes for when you’re done.
We'll provide the rest of the equipment.
Spartan Hurricane Heaters are prepared for anything. It is advised that all Hurricane Heaters read through these blog posts to get familiar with the event.
NOTE: We DO NOT use bib numbers or timing chips at the Hurricane Heat, so don't worry about that.
Facebook Event Page:
It’s important to begin developing teamwork as soon as possible. Join the event page on Facebook to meet your fellow comrades and start becoming a single unit before the event.
-There is no bag check during most Hurricane Heat events since they typically take place when the Festival Village is closed to the public. We highly recommend leaving your belongings in your vehicle until after the event.
Here’s what to expect:
MANDATORY: Download our Race Waiver. Print it out, sign it, bring it with you. No waiver, no ASIA HH-004 (SINGAPORE) 2016. No Waiver, ASIA HH-004 (SINGAPORE) 2016. Yes, we said that twice.
