Spartan Race is a global leader in the sport of Obstacle Course Racing, featuring varying distances for both beginners and elite runners to challenge themselves and test their limits. The series includes the very accessible Sprint (5km, 20 obstacles), the intermediate Super distance (13km, 25 obstacles) and the mighty Beast (20km, 30 obstacles).
If these events leave you wanting more there is also the Spartan Ultra (50km, 60 obstacles), the pinnacle of Spartans race distances, featuring unique course elements and obstacles. There are also the newly rebranded Spartan Extreme Endurance events – team-based events designed to push racers to greater personal distances and learn the value of teamwork. You discover the connection between teamwork and success and how one drives the other on both a personal level and as a member of something greater than yourself.
2018 was the most exciting year to date with the highest number of participants in UK history, across more events than ever before and including a new venue in Scotland and launching in Ireland for the very first time.
For 2019 Spartan Race UK & Ireland will also be introducing the new Stadion event at the iconic home of England Rugby – Twickenham Stadium.
The Stadion’s action-packed, 5km course makes it the perfect event for those looking to begin their Spartan Journey. Easily accessible to metropolitan areas, you’ll sprint through sloping walkways, navigate winding corridors and scale-up hundreds of stairs- and that’s before any of the obstacles. Racers will enjoy testing their speed and agility on an exciting, fast course.
Stadion has everything from low crawls to rope climbs, from box jumps to sandbag carries. You’ll tackle over 20 unique obstacles, pick up plenty of finisher’s swag and make memories that last a lifetime. Tackling a Stadion is the best answer to the question: “What did you do this weekend?”
With all this excitement, there has never been a better time to join the legions of loyal Spartan racers – with Spartan Kids races available at every venue why not make it a fun weekend for all of the family!
Three Main Spartan Race Types
The Spartan Sprint puts endurance aside and tests your quickness through 5km+ loaded with 20+ obstacles. A great starter distance for beginners, or a perfect test against time for the more advanced racer.
The Spartan Super is as much mental as it is physical, spanning over 13km+ that are just as unforgiving as the 25+ obstacles that litter the distance.
The Spartan Beast is our longest and most difficult race out of our three main race types and is aptly named for its brutal 20km+ circuit with more than 30 obstacles that try to keep you from your finish line.
For juniors under 14, we offer junior races. These races, 1.5km in distance, have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy.
