THE CHALLENGE

High intensity interval training will set you up for success on race day. If you’re a runner, focus on strength and conditioning workouts to help you blast through Stadion’s functional obstacles. If running isn’t your forte, work on your explosive cardio with stair climbs, jump rope, and hill repeats. Need help? Check out the Spartan Training Center for training plans and tools to get you ready.

Training Center

Stadion is intense and of relatively short duration, so you may want to wear compression apparel to help you with the explosive movements and reduce muscle fatigue. A pair of shoes designed for pavement use will help with comfort and speed. You’ll have access to regular hydration points at aid stations.
