Elite Prize Money – SPARTAN US FAQ
Spartan obstacle course races are known to leave competitors physically spent and slathered in mud from head-to-toe, proudly worn like a hard-earned battle scar. The dirtier, the better. But in the era of COVID , with everything from locals 5Ks to the London Marathon cancelled, how can an event as communal as a Spartan go on, let alone stay sanitary in a socially-distanced world? Typically, Spartan events draw thousands of participants for their 5K Sprints with 20 obstacles, but the company made significant changes to its operations in order to create the first socially-distant Spartan this past Saturday at WW Motocross Park in Jacksonville, Florida.
Obstacle racing is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing sports in the world and Spartan Race is blazing the trails with more than events in over 30 countries. The folks at Spartan believe that it is more than a race; it's a way of life. Spartan Sprint, Super, and Stadium race obstacles are designed to test your mental and physical strength, determination and endurance.
At Spartan, getting you safely back on course and overcoming obstacles is the highest priority for us. This plan has been designed to keep all racers, volunteers, and staff safe, meet strict government requirements, and bring Spartan events back to as many people as safely possible. Spartan formed a task force to design multiple blueprints that meet various guidelines and legislative requirements.
