For the second year running, Spartan Race is returning to take over the Emerald Isle and show Ireland what we are made of! Just outside of Dublin in the beautiful Irish countryside stands the famous Punchestown Racecourse, which for one weekend a year, turns in to the perfect flat and fast Spartan race course! This is the perfect race location for both first time Spartans and our seasoned returners.
A Spartan Race is not just an epic and fun event; it's an obstacle race that will push you beyond your limits and show you what you're truly capable of. The first of it's kind to feature timings and global rankings, Spartan Race provides a proving ground for everyone from beginners to seasoned racers looking to test themselves in a new way by offering Open, Age Group and Elite heats.
With a Sprint and a Super on offer, we're bringing our A-game to Ireland from the off. Are you ready to take on the gauntlet that we're about to throw down?
Sprint: Test yourself over a distance of 5km+ taking on more than 20 obstacles. A great starter distance for beginners or a perfect test against time for more advanced racers.
Super: The ideal blend of endurance and speed. This 13km+ will challenge you on 25+ obstacles over varied terrain and truly test your athleticism.
Kids: For children under 14, we also offer Spartan Kids races. These take place on a separate and bespoke course and at every one of our adult events. The Spartan Kid races are circa 1.5km in distance, and have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy!
What are you waiting for? It's time to take on a new challenge and we are ready for you. Let's show Ireland what we are made of!
