Can I skip an obstacle or what if I skip an obstacle, is there a penalty?

Spartans don't skip obstacles, we overcome them! We strongly discourage skipping obstacles without attempting them as it is unfair to others that do attempt them. As well, what is the point of doing an obstacle course race then? However, if you must skip an obstacle that you DO first at least try but simply cannot complete it, there will be a mandatory set of burpees that you must complete before moving on. This is the case with ALL obstacles.. so that can be a lot of burpees - so try hard and complete those obstacles.
