Spartan Race – Scotland routes

Sprint

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.

Beast

The Beast is one of the most challenging races you will ever face and it will test even the most experienced racers. Although the course is 21km, it is nothing like a half marathon. 30 obstacles will stand between you and the finish line. These will include obstacles that are only available on the Beast Corse. You can expect heavy carries, fast descents, fearsome climbs and possibly even a swim.

Ultra

This is the ultimate test for any endurance athlete. With 60 obstacles over 50km, the ultra event is traditional ultra running meets obstacle courses. You will experience stunning views, leg crushing climbs & unrelenting obstacles.

Kids

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
