Spartan Race – Ireland routes



The Sprint is a 5km course on uneven and rugged terrain. Although this is a short distance race, it is packed full of challenges. 20 obstacles will test you and drain you, but will ultimately leave you with a smile on your face.


The super is a tough mixture of distance and speed, designed to push you to your limits. It is 13km long and has 25 energy sapping obstacles in your way.


Time to put down the electronics and put yourself through a real test. Many of the signature obstacles will challenge you to complete things you thought far beyond you.

The kids course varies in distance depending on age

  • 4-6: 800-1000m
  • 7-9:1600-2400m
  • 10-14: 3200-4500m
