Defining the soul of a race like Spartan took the collected effort of seven extraordinary people. Inspired by the spirit of the Death Race, expect the unexpected and the brain child of endurance athletes, mountaineers, and former Royal Marines, the Spartan Race is the toughest series of events on the planet. These individuals, dubbed the “Founding Few” in the inception of the Spartan Race obstacle racing series, these individuals 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.
The people who bring you Spartan Race are the real thing. They’re tough. They’re daring. They’re bold. They’ve been out there, pushing themselves physically and mentally further than they thought possible, facing adversity and overcoming it. Every member of the Spartan Race Team is dedicated and talented, many accomplished athletes, relentlessly pursuing the next level of competition and their own personal best. And each one of them brings this intense enthusiasm to Spartan Race and to its participants.
Here’s your chance to get to know them a little better. The “Founding Few” who have blazed the trails as epic athletes of their own right, making Spartan Race the toughest obstacle race series in existence and the one and only Spartan Death Race, the World’s Toughest Race, period.
For the next seven days, we’ll tell their stories and in a follow up series we’ll share the stories of those who hold it down at Spartan Race HQ each and every day.
Hear their stories, be inspired, come out and race with us… you’ll never be the same. You’ll know at the finish line.
