(NECN: Jackie Bruno, Boston) – Fenway Park is transforming into an obstacle course.
The Spartan Race time trial is happening on November 17 and 18, this Saturday and Sunday.
Jackie Bruno has a live inside look of Fenway with what participants will be facing.
Red Sox and Fenway Park are celebrating 100 years, and this is the first time they’ve ever done anything like the Spartan Race.
Brian Duncanson, the race director of the Spartan Race, says he used to create obstacle course in his house as a child.
Jackie Bruno throws a javelin and attempts the traverse wall, which is like a horizontal rock climbing wall.
The event is November 17 and 18. Heats start at 8 a.m. and go roughly every five minutes in small waves. On Saturday, the event is from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Sunday, the event is from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
There will be over 3,000 racers each day and several thousand spectators. It’s a ball-park wide event.
There is also a kids race for anyone bringing their children.
