Spartan Race is coming to New Zealand!
Spartan Australia dropped their full 2019 event calendar, with the inclusion of…
Auckland, New Zealand!
The Spartan brand has grown to become a global leader in obstacle course racing, and 2019 will signify the first time the race series will enter the New Zealand market.
The event has been named as an Auckland Urban Sprint scheduled for August 2019.
An Urban Sprint is described as, “5k like you’ve never seen it before. 20+ obstacles over a 5k course with a banging festival area will be dropped into your city when the world’s best obstacle race comes to town. Get your mates together, don your Spartan helmets, form your team, and have a go at Spartan!
“The Urban Sprint will include all of our feature Spartan Sprint obstacles such as the Spear Throw, the Hercules Hoist, the Rings, and so much more. You’ll find yourself climbing, crawling, jumping, and swinging over, under, and through some of the best obstacles in the world. If you’re thinking this is a whole new level from your usual 5k, then don’t stress! The Urban Sprint is an entry into the world of Spartan, and the course has been designed so that anyone can run it.”
The date and venue of the Auckland Urban Sprint have yet to be announced.
Tickets are expected to go on sale in the coming months.
As promised, dates and venues of the Auckland Spartan events were announced at the start of 2019!
The Spartan City Sprint Auckland takes place 2-3 August at the Ellerslie Racecourse, Auckland.
The Spartan Kids Auckland takes place 4 August at the Ellerslie Racecourse, Auckland.
The Urban Sprint format received a name change from ‘Urban Sprint’ to ‘City Sprint’, and the Auckland event followed suit – now titled the Spartan City Sprint, Auckland.
“Spartan has reached over 30 countries and one million participants around the globe, and on behalf of the Spartan team I’m thrilled to be able to bring it to Auckland, and to all Kiwis, for the first time!” said Chris Heverin, Managing Director of Spartan Australia & New Zealand.
