Reebok Spartan Race is the industry standard of obstacle course racing. Our meticulous development of standards, points, rankings, and the biggest purse in the sport has set us apart and with standardized races at four escalating distances in locations worldwide, we’re proving that we are here to stay. While featuring competitive elite heats, Reebok Spartan Races are for athletes of all levels and abilities and are geared toward ripping people off their couches and into the outdoors.

Defining the soul of a race like Spartan took the collected effort of seven extraordinary people. In 2010 the first race was hosted in Vermont, inspired by the spirit of the Death Race and the brainchild of eight insane ultra athletes, the Spartan Race is the toughest event on the planet. These individuals, dubbed the “Founding Few” have blazed new trails in their respective events, broken world records and traveled the world seeking bigger and better challenges. They bring that experience, that fire to each and every Spartan Race around the World.


Spartan Race isn't just the obstacle course, it is a community of like-minded individuals sharing the exhilaration of fitness and reaching goals. Being coached is more than just training; it covers every aspect of life and really transforms us into better humans. Spartan Coaches is helping make that a reality with their programs and certifications. Serious about transforming your life? Spartan Coaches can help make that a reality.
