And lo, on this night, teams of three gladiators in their finest togas shall endeavor to attain eternal gory. Great minds will design and build their chariots, race them up and down the streets, creating a party that honors the gods of Mount Olympus.
Teams are encouraged to be co-ed, with one person driving and two pulling. Chariots should be well-built and original. Speed is important, but style really matters, so prepare a skit or funny way to introduce your team and put on a show for the crowd.
This isn't just any race, this is the Red Bull Chariot Race. So put on that toga or gladiator helmet and be ready to get loud and rowdy in the best Athenian tradition.
