If you're ready for a challenge, prepare yourself for Spartan.
"Spartan is the world’s best obstacle race. Period."
The event will be launched using a ‘crowd funding’ model. What does that mean? When you register you will pay 1 cent only. Once the event hits 2k entries (by 1st March 2017) the event is confirmed and the balance of entry is charged.
There's a variety of races you can get involved with:
SPRINT: 7 kms. 20-23 Obstacles
BEAST: 20+kms. 30-35 Obstacles
