The Gladiator Hike.
All the info I have is that folks dress up in their “300” finest, their Russell Crowe-inspired breastplates, their period-appropriate codpieces with banners and flags and such, and then proceed to trudge up the hill.
I must know about this. This is one of those “only in LA” things. Can anyone shed some light on who organizes this, where it meets, what it’s like, etc? Is it an excuse for boys who like gladiators to gawk at one anothers’ barrel chests and bulging biceps? Is it a bunch of history buffs? Is it a bunch of Eagle Scouts who got tired of hiking in their uniforms?
