Madrid Sprint

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite among 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.

Auditorio Miguel Ríos de Rivas Vaciamadrid, con capacidad para 15.000 espectadores (ampliable a 34.000) es un impresionante 'anfiteatro' diseñado sobre la falda de una colina para albergar espectáculos musicales y escénicos.


It's a 5+km and a 15+ obstacles course. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. But please consider the following: the course is a cross country course which will lead you through woods and bushes, moats, and climbing obstacles as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots or wires and water and/or slippery surfaces. We therefore point out that injuries may occur through falls, stumble, twists, slips etc. when overcoming the obstacles or on the course. Additional injury may be caused by falls of other participants. So, we ask you to adjust your running speed based on what you see around you, the respective obstacles and the rush on the course.


You can only participate in the race if you have handed in your signed waiver when you pick up your racer packet. You will also receive a timing chip. It is mandatory to wear the timing chip at all times during the race, otherwise you cannot be timed. You are not allowed to pass your timing chip to another athlete, as it is linked with your bib number. If you can't complete an obstacle you will have to suffer some BURPEES. However, there are obstacles that are "no fail" obstacles - you will have to do the obstacle otherwise your are disqualified. Passing an obstacle without doing it or doing burpees will lead to disqualification. At each obstacle and along the course we have marshals checking that every athlete is following the course and obstacles. You are not allowed to cut the course. You can overtake others anywhere unless elsewise announced on the course. However, we expect that you respect the other athletes.


Every competitor receives a medal, a Reebok Spartan t-shirt. Timing chip as well some free race pictures. And there's so much more...scrapes and bruises, stories, stories and more stories!


There are aid stations on the course and at the finish. But they are Spartan style aid stations so if you have specific needs for nutrition make sure to bring with you what you need. Carry extra hydration and fuel if you think you might be fatigued or pass out from dehydration.


You can drop your bag at our bag drop off tent and after the race you can pick it up.


Pre and post race there are showers and changing tents available.


Race photos are available online after the race. Post race you will will receive an email with details about how to find them.


There are parking areas at the venue, however we recommend to use public transport- connections from Madrid to Rivas are frequently, and the metro station is just 5 walking minutes from the venue. The venue for the second Spartan Race Madrid will be announced shortly. It will be within maximum 45 minutes around Madrid City Center. Follow us on our social media and by newsletter to receive updates.
