Spartan is a Way of Life.

Born in the gritty green mountains of Vermont by Joe DeSena, world-class adventure racer, Spartan is a frame of mind.

Gritty. Resilient. Passionate. Spartans aren’t soft. Spartans overcome obstacles. And yes, Spartans burpee.

Spartan is a sport, community, a philosophy, a training and nutrition program – with daily advice, a podcast, a series of books, an activity for kids, workout gear, a media channel, a digital magazine, and a timed obstacle race.

Spartan Race is innovating obstacle racing on a global scale. With more than 130 races around the world annually – we offer three core races each escalating in distance, obstacle count and challenge level. The Spartan Sprint (5K, 20 Obstacles), the Spartan Super (10K, 25 Obstacles) and Spartan Beast (Half Marathon, 30 Obstacles). Courses are riddled with signature obstacles: mud, barbed wire, walls, rope and fire. Challenge yourself to complete all three and become part of the TRIFECTA tribe.

We also offer a kids race (800-1600-3200 m), and for those who looking to push themselves even further, the Hurricane Heat and the Ultra (50K, 60 Obstacles).

Spartan is the world’s best obstacle race. Period.
