SPARTAN VIRTUAL RACE WEEK
November 10-15. Race Any Distance. Any Day. Multiple Times.
Spartan has announced the return of its Canada National Series for the 2021 race season. The two-event OCR series will feature some of the sport’s best female and male athletes at some of the most epic outdoor venues in the country. Racers have been putting in the work at home and it’s no secret that they are ready to get back out on the course. "I'm looking forward to being at my peak performance, so I can measure my capacity against the best," said Spartan Canada Pro Team member Samuel Hébert. "But I'm also looking forward to seeing so many of my friends and family from the OCR community that I haven't been able to see in so long." This event is an opportunity for Canadian racers to not only compete on their home turf, but also defend it.
“I'm thrilled about the recognition and competitiveness that the Canada National Series will bring to Spartan racing in Canada,” said Canadian and two-time Spartan World Champion Lindsay Webster. “For years, the US National Series races have been the primary allure to elites because of the extremely high level of competition and caliber of race that Spartan puts together for us athletes. Now that Spartan has brought this to the table in Canada, it's exciting to hear about athletes’ plans to travel across the border to partake.”
