2017 U.K. Spartan Race Schedule

Three Main Race Types

Sprint

The Reebok Spartan Sprint puts endurance aside and tests your quickness through 5km+ loaded with 20+ obstacles. A great starter distance for beginners, or a perfect test against time for the more advanced racer.

Super

The Reebok Spartan Super is as much mental as it is physical, spanning over 13km+ that are just as unforgiving as the 25+ obstacles that litter the distance.

Beast

The Reebok Spartan Beast is just plain hard. This is our longest and most difficult race out of our three main race types and is aptly named for its brutal 20km+ circuit with more than 30 obstacles that try to keep you from your finish line.

Junior Race

For juniors under 14, we offer junior races. These races, 1.5km in distance, have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy.

Endurance Events

Think you can handle more? Prove it by signing up for one of our endurance races. Choose from the Ultra Beast (41+km, 60+ obstacles), Hurricane Heat (3-4 hours of grueling team building), Hurricane Heat 12 Hour (12 hours of physically and mentally draining team and individual challenges), or the Agoge, a 60-hour event that builds physical, tactical, mental, and team-based strength through training, testing and evaluation.

We will never reveal all our secrets. We must maintain the Spartan element of surprise at every one of our races. However, there are some gold standards that have been established over time, and it won’t hurt to introduce you some of the things that might stand between you and your finish line.
