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.
