The Spartan race in Ras Al Khaimah will be divided into various categories: Sprint, Super, Hurricane Heat and one just for the kids.
The Spartan Sprint
Over 5km, with 20 of the race’s signature obstacles to conquer. Perfect for runners of any levels, it may be the shortest but packs the most obstacles to overcome.
The Spartan Super
A 10km distance with more than 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles, all through tougher and more rugged terrain.
The Hurricane Heat
The Hurricane Heat is a unique event, where participants will be assigned a team upon arrival and will be expected to work together to complete any and all challenges set before them.
Teamwork pays off, as you can’t finish alone. There are no timing chips, no clock, just a fun run Spartan-style. And Burpees, lots of burpees apparently.
The participants must be 18 years or older.
The Spartan Kids
For little ones aged 4 to 14. A distance up to 3.2km and 7 to 14 obstacles to get around, kids are expected to jump, run and get muddy.
