The Spartan Race is one of the world’s leading obstacle course races. The races are designed to test endurance, mental toughness, and physical strength. So if you want to push yourself mentally and physically, the Spartan Race is where it’s at.
We created the Spartan Race Checklist to help you prepare for your upcoming race. Whether you’re new to obstacle course race training or a seasoned Spartan, one of the best ways to knock race day out of the park is to arrive feeling confident and ready to tackle the course.
