Spartan Race - Washington DC routes

3+ miles & 20-23 Obstacles (Sprint Distance):

The Sprint may be Spartan's shortest distance race, but it’s still a favourite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20-23 obstacles over 3-5 miles, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.

Kids Race:

Spartan Race's aren't just for adults. The Spartan Kids Race offers two distances for the little Spartans in your life. Based on age, 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.
