Spartan Series Added to ORNZ Race Calendar
Spartan takes place from 31 July – 1 August 2021.
The World’s #1 Obstacle Course race will be heading back to amazing Auckland in 2021! With more than 130 races around the world annually. Spartan is a frame of mind. Gritty. Resilient. Passionate. Spartans aren’t soft. Spartans overcome obstacles. And yes, Spartans burpee. Spartan is a sport, community, a philosophy, a training and nutrition program – with daily advice, a podcast, a series of books, an activity for kids, workout gear, a media channel, an NBC Sports series, a digital magazine, and a timed obstacle race.
The Spartan Sprint is a 5 km, 20 obstacle race that will change your life. This is our signature race type, a fast-paced adventure through rugged terrain built for new and returning racers alike. It’s the perfect gateway into the world of Spartan.
The Spartan Super is a 10 km, 25 obstacle race that blends speed, endurance and technical skill. Supers are built to always keep you guessing, testing your athleticism and mental fortitude over rugged terrain.
Spartan Hurricane Heat is a team-based adventure challenge that trades course distance for time. Your Hurricane Heat will last either 4, 12 or 24 hours and will not finish with a single victor. HH Teams band together, solving complex physical and mental problems as they endure and overcome as one.
Spartan Kids is a series of obstacle course races — ranging from 800m to 3.2km — specifically designed to get your kids (ages 4-14) outside, feeling accomplished and having fun. They’ll run, jump and crush their way through obstacles, just like the adults.
