What you need to know about Obstacle Races

Here, grit is the rule, not the exception, so we kindly ask that you either leave your fears at home or face them on the course.

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but its still a favorite amongst both new and returning racers. Its 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+ miles, youll never run the same race twice.
