At Spartan, we’re dedicated to making healthy the new normal for the next generation through our kids obstacle course races. We don’t give them medals, they earn it after completing our course where they can conquer kid-sized versions of our signature Spartan obstacles. We’re bringing it back to the basics and encouraging kids to run, climb, jump and get muddy. Make it a family day out this September. Family and friends are welcome to cheer on their mini-Spartans as spectators.
