Route description


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

Did the Super in 2019
having completed my first spartan race at marston lodge this July I can only recommend taking part in future events. The overall experience was fantastic - well worth the 3 hour drive and dedicating the weekend to the event. The course was really challenging, fun and exciting but felt safe the whole way round. really good course design. the setting was picturesque and remote giving a good sense of adventure. The apparel handed out post event was good enough, and the stewards/ staff were great. There was also sufficient water refill stations meaning you didn't have a chance to get dehydrated.<br />my recommendations for improvement would be:<br />- handing out some form of energy snacks round the course such as sweets or gels<br />- the atmosphere in the arena wasn't that fun. music was quiet and it was very tame. there wasn't much to do or going on.<br />- there was no need to arrive at the recommended 1.5 hours early - this was no bad thing as this was down to good planning and event organisation, but wasted lots of time sitting around<br />- the food and drink stalls in the arena weren't varied or interesting.<br />- more free stuff should be given out e.g. at bristol 10km they gave kiwi fruits, special K bars and weetabix drinks - get more sponsors willing to give for free and not charge e.g. for electrolytes<br />- it didn't feel like there was anything to do/ going on after the event. it'd be fun to have a finishers arena and a little party going on.<br />

Frequently asked questions
Will there be showers available?
You will be able to wash off all that mud as cold showers are provided outdoors at the race.
Are Dogs Allowed at the Race?
Unfortunately pets are not allowed at the venue. However, if you have the proper documentation, Service Animals can be admitted.
Can I skip an obstacle? Is there a penalty?
NO! Spartans don't skip obstacles, they overcome them! It is highly discouraged to skip the obstacles without attempting them. It is not fair on others who do attempt them. Also, aren't the obstacles the point of doing an obstacle course race?
Are there water stations on course?
There are water and aid stations available
