Spartan Kids

Race Against Someone Your Own Size

Who Are You Really?

Hurricane Heat 4hr, 12hr and 24hr events aren't races, they're extreme physical and mental tests of character, teamwork, and leadership. The 60hr Agoge held only twice a year is the most extreme.

Covering some of the toughest vertical terrain Spartan has to offer, the Spartan Mountain Series will test your upper limits. From the legendary hills of Palmerton, to the steep elevation of Asheville, prepare for unrelenting climbs, descents, and carries that seem just a little bit heavier than normal. These Mountains are an obstacle all on their own. Don't worry though, you'll be pushed even further with signature Spartan obstacles and the toughest competition around. It’s time to climb. Do you have what it takes to reach the top?

From its' very beginning, Spartan has been dedicated to supporting those who motivate us, protect us, serve us - those who achieve more than anyone thinks they can. At Spartan, we believe our military, first responders and all those who put their lives on the line for us every day have shown us how to overcome any obstacle that stands in our way. They live Spartan daily. That's why the Honor Series is such a special event for our community.

The Spartan United States National Series is obstacle course racing competition at its highest level. A series of 5 races challenge top athletes at the nation's top venues, where they will battle for top rankings and over $15,000 in prize money. The US National Series leads into the North American Championship in West Virginia, as one part of Global National Series, all leading up to the world title in Lake Tahoe, California.
