Spartan Race

Unleash. Release. Compete.

 

Arooooo! Just for fun, more and more people are subjecting themselves to the throwback pleasures of long, gruelling Spartan Races. The question is.. are YOU in?

Get ready to get down, dirty and muddy! Get into shape, get fit, and have an experience of your lifetime and meet some amazing people while you're at it.

 

Spartan Race is a series of obstacle races of varying distance and difficulty ranging from 1 mile to marathon distances: the Spartan Sprint (3+ miles of obstacle racing), the Super Spartan (8+ miles), the Spartan Beast (12+ miles), and the Ultra Beast (26+ miles - one of two marathon obstacle courses along with Mudderthon). Spartan Race also has a time-trial obstacle course race that is one mile in length, and has a military series in which obstacles are designed by the United States military. Spartan Race's parent company, Peak Races, hosts the Spartan Death Race, 48+ hour extreme test of endurance and resilience.

Most of us are doing the Spartan Sprint.
