FAQ's
What Spartan Heat is right for me?
Elite Category: this is a real test against the best Spartan racers trying to climb the table of the Spartan Race Point Series. There is money and potential sponsorship at stake, so it gets competitive. There is a code of good sportsmanship though, and all elite athletes honour the strict race rules and guidelines. On-course referees will monitor the elite heats, and rule-breaking athletes risk being disqualified. Age Group Category: This category gives you the chance to try the challenge and get an idea of your ranking amongst other people your age. There is a points series for these runners as well, including podiums, prizes, and rankings. Open Category: Anybody can get involved in the Open Category. From first-time Spartan Racers, to weekend regulars and teams, everyone is welcome. The course will push your limits, taking you out of your comfort zone, but you are under no time pressure to get ranking points or win prizes. Enjoy the experience at your own pace!

Can I take part as a team?
Yes, a lot of teams take part in Spartan races in the Open heats. There are discounts and offers available for teams, so get a group of friends together for the challenge! Your friendship might be tested in some of the difficult stages, but it will be stronger than ever afterwards once you've been through it all together. Why not sign up with a team from work and show off in front of your employees or your boss? The mud, hills, and obstacles will be a great scene change from the office desk. There is a special corporate package, giving an amazing opportunity to boost team morale.
CaretLeft
What are the age limits for the kids races?
Kids from ages 4-13 are allowed to take part. Kids are separated according to age groups, but we can stick with friends or siblings if you want to compete together. Parents and guardians aren’t obliged to accompany their children around the course but you can if your child wants support…that's if you can keep up with them.
CaretLeft
Can I skip an obstacle? Is there a penalty?
No - skipping obstacles is not part of the Spartans' ethos. Obstacles are there to be overcome. Spartan races strongly discourage skipping obstacles without at least giving them a try, as it is unfair to others that do attempt them. However, if there is an obstacle that you simply cannot overcome despite your effort and you NEED to miss it out, the forfeit is completing a set of burpees before you are allowed to move on. That can add up to a lot of burpees if you have to miss every obstacle, so come with a positive mindset that you can overcome any obstacle on the course.
