THE CHALLENGE
HOW TO TRAIN

Spartan is a true all-round physical and mental test. Ideal for runners, weightlifters, functional fitness fans, and newbies alike, there are parts of each Sprint that push you in all areas. Focus training on areas you’re not so good at, and if that’s all of them, no problem. Spartan brings together world-class elite athletes, to people just trying to get active.

Training Center

Stadion is intense and of relatively short duration, so you may want to wear compression apparel to help you with the explosive movements and reduce muscle fatigue. A pair of shoes designed for pavement use will help with comfort and speed. You’ll have access to regular hydration points at aid stations.
