Spartan Race is one of the few events of it’s kind where kids get in on the action! Where else can kids take on an obstacle course and earn some rad Spartan hardware and support an amazing charity with the Kids Fit Foundation?
Entry fee is $25.00 Per Child ages 4-13. The course is about a 1⁄2 mile filled with junior obstacles for children 4-9 and 1 mile for kids 10-13. Each child will receive a T-shirt and Finisher’s Medal with 100% of the Jr. Spartan Adventure proceeds benefiting the Kids Fit Foundation.
As a leader in the movement to help children learn life-long health and fitness habits, the Kids Fit Foundation strives to raise awareness and develop programs that educate, empower and inspire kids to become and stay fit.
Spartan Races are about a return to the childlike sense of adventure that we’ve lost while getting sucked up into ‘normal life’. Spartan Races wants to keep this sense of adventure alive in our kids BEFORE they lose it.
Today, a typical child devotes an average 7.5 hours each day to entertainment media: TV, video games, cell phones, and movies.
Physical activity is essential in helping children control weight, build lean muscle, reduce fat, and develop strong bones, muscles and joints. The challenges in a Kid Spartan Race are ideally suited to building fitter, stronger, and healthier youths.
Spartan Races are about building a healthy and active community of people. Kid Spartan Races allow us to help build stronger families.
