Spartan Race is working with Homes for Our Troops, an organization strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001.

Homes for Our Troops has been named a Top Rated Charity by American Institute of Philanthropy and has been give a 4‐Star rating by Charity Navigator.
