We’ve been racing since everyone else has been ‘Dashing’ and ‘Mudding.’ We were born out of the Death Race in 2005 and strive to throw the most wicked race for the baddest athletes on the planet. And we want YOU to race with us. So, what do you need to know?
1) Spartan Race was founded by 7 extraordinary individuals: The Founding Few, comprised of six ultra-athletes and a former British Royal Marine. These people participated and competed in ultra-distance, self-supported races and expeditions for fun, for the challenge and for the primal satisfaction of testing physical limitations.
A few examples: Joe DeSena – Multiple Ironman finisher, Ultra-distance runner and cyclist. Noel Hanna – World Record holder in mountain climbing, has ascended Everest four times. Andy Weinberg – Ironman, Double and Triple Ironman finisher, ultra-distance runner and cyclist. Richard Lee – Royal Marine, Ironman finisher, and endurance athlete
Why is that relevant?
Because we know rad racing and this a rad race.
