40+ countries live the Spartan life. It's your turn.

What is Spartan Race?

Your Spartan journey will push you beyond your limits and transform you into the best version of yourself.

There are three main types of Spartan Races and they are designed to cater to all fitness levels.

For beginners we recommend the Sprint Spartan's shortest courses are 5km+ and 20+ obstacles. Complete the race at your own pace. If you fail an obstacle along the way, you owe us 30 burpees before continuing on.

Ready for more? The Super is 13km+, 25+ obstacles, and often hosted on a tougher terrain.

The hardest of the three races is the Beast: 20km+ and 30+ obstacles. We’ll leave the challenges of the course to your imagination.

For Kids under 14, we offer kids races. These races, 1.5km in distance, have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy.

Nothing forges friendships like burpees in the mud. Whether you’re a group of friends, OCR regulars or a corporate team looking to bring more unity to the workplace, we also offer Group and Corporate Packages
