Why Gladiator? Top 3 Reasons to Participate!

It’s back, and it’s going to be a MARIO PARTY. 

Will your team save Princess Peach or will you fall into a trap set by the Goombas? This year’s theme for Gladiator is everything MARIO related. 

Wait? What’s Gladiator you ask? 

Gladiator is an annual UBC Recreation Intramurals event, and probably one of the most unique. It’s essentially an action-packed, team obstacle course with a series of unconventional tasks and giant inflatables. 

Interested? We thought you might be!

Get together your co-rec team of 6-10 people, with a maximum of half the team made up by self-identified males.

Registration for Gladiator is open NOW and closes Oct. 7 at 5pm!


Not convinced? (Not yet, at least?)

Here’s a couple more reasons why your team should register for Gladiator!

1. Anyone can do it! (No training required or expected)

This is one of the lowest barrier events we have to offer! No training needed, just bring your lovely smiles, bounce along the obstacle course and have a great time. No one’s expecting a perfect run through an inflatable obstacle course, in fact, we’re hoping for some funny falls. 

2. Convenient Place & Times

With 4 (four!), 2 hour time slots throughout the evening, your team can pick the time that works best for you! So come on down to the SRC after your classes, after dinner or before your midnight snack. It’s on-campus and easy to locate for commuters – it’s right by the new bus loop!

Time slots can fill up fast though! So register as soon as possible. 

3. Fun & Friendly – Team Bonding!

In a new club? Living in residence? Need to blow off some steam with some of your pals? PERFECT. 

Gladiator is a great way for your team to bond! Whether it’s a club social or meeting more people from your residence, this event is a great opportunity to see everyone in a fun, new environment!

4. What else…?

SO MUCH MORE … but we’ll let you see for yourself… 

So, grab your comfortable shoes, a group of friends, maybe some Mario themed costumes and register for Gladiator before it’s too late!
