Take part in this epic event set in the City of Brotherly Love's baseball stadium. You'll be seriously challenged as you crawl through tunnels and climb the concourses, but it'll all be worth it when you tuck into Philadelphia's favorite hoagie or cheesesteak after the race.
Spartan has confirmed that this event will be going ahead as planned on Saturday 30th Oct 2021 in accordance with the COVID-19 safety measures. Learn more

Spartan Race – Citizens Bank Park - Stadion routes
3 mi/5 km 20 Obstacles (Stadion Distance):
The Stadion was an ancient Greek running event and a historic, original Olympic Game. It got its name from the storied stadium it took place in. Now, we’re letting you compete in the legendary stadiums of today and add to their history. But unlike Ancient Greece, all levels are encouraged to take part and enjoy themselves. No matter your level, set your own personal record and etch a new chapter in your own history book.
Spartan Race isn't just for adults. Our Spartan Kids Race offers two distances for the little Spartans in your life. Based on age, our Kids races have obstacles in them just like the grown up versions. Come watch your future Spartans run, jump, and play just like they're supposed to.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be photos?
5-7 days after the event, the event page will display professional photos from the event completely free of charge! You will be emailed when your personal photos are ready.
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.
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!
Spartan is a leader in the sport of obstacle racing, offering open heats for all fitness levels, as well as competitive and elite heats for those with something more to prove. The first of its kind to feature timing and global rankings, Spartan provides a proving ground for beginner and professional obstacle racers looking to test themselves in new ways across the world.
