Spartan Race – Virginia Sprint & Super routes

Sprint Distance

3+ miles and 20+ obstacles. The Sprint is Spartan's shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite for both new and returning racers. If you're just starting your Spartan journey, it's the perfect distance. In the 3-5 mile course, there will be over 20 obstacles to contest with, so there's plenty of variety.

Super Distance

10k and 25+ obstacles. There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 24-29 Spartan Obstacles and 8-10 miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

Kids Race:

Spartan Race isn't just for adults. Spartan Kids Races offer 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.

Kit List

What to wear:

Although there is no dress code in Spartan races, wear what you think will be most comfortable during a race where you will be required to run, crawl, climb, roll under barbed wire and jump through fire.

Some guidelines are:

  • Avoid cotton if possible
  • Trail running shoes and lightweight apparel that will drain water and mud quickly
  • Bring a water pack and race fuel
  • It is not recommended to wear new shoes on the day
  • Nothing inappropriate please, this is a family event.

What to bring:

  • Pre-race: Your photo ID, signed waiver form, and registration Barcode (on your phone or printed off)
  • After the race: Cash, a towel and a fresh set of clothes.
  • Recommended: headlamp and Camelback
  • Things not to bring: outside food or drink (you are allowed to bring fuel for the race), your pets, a negative attitude.

What to collect on the day:

You will receive your Registration Packets, Bib Numbers, Finisher shirts, medals etc. on site at the event. These will not be mailed out before the event.

Spectators

Spectators are welcome to get front row seats in the festival area to support their friends and family. You'll stay (mostly) out of the mud splatter zone! Entry to the festival costs $20 in advance or $25 on the day, and the pass will give you access to all the stalls and entertainment of the festival village, as well as a merchandise discount card.

Volunteers
As a Spartan Race Volunteer, you will ensure that our racers and spectators have an epic experience. Along with a sense of extreme pride and sheer joy from helping out a ton of people you've never met before, there's a lot to gain from becoming a Spartan Volunteer.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
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 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.
