      Spartan U.S. National Series Race in Chicago to Test Athlete’s Strength & Endurance on Gritty Obstacle Race Course

      Grit and endurance collide during Spartan’s Chicago obstacle race weekend June 22-24, which marks the fourth race in the Spartan U.S. National Series. This race will feature the region’s best endurance athletes as they battle for more than $100,000 in series cash prizes and ranking points, as well as the right to compete in the 2018 Spartan North American Championship on August 25 in West Virginia and the 2018 World Championship in North Lake Tahoe September 29.

      The race weekend unfolds at the Richmond Hunt Club and includes some of the nation’s most competitive athletes as well as weekend warriors and new racers taking on Spartan’s signature events, including the “Super” (8-10 mile, 24–29 obstacle), “Sprint” (3-5 mile, 20-23 obstacles), and Kids Races. With elite, age group, and open races, the weekend offers competitions and activities for all abilities, including 10-mile Elite Spartan Super and 2-mile Varsity Spartan Kids Race. The course will feature up to 29 Spartan obstacles designed to push competitors to their limits as they conquer acres upon acres of Chicago flatlands.

      A Spartan Open House on the evening of Friday, June 22 provides new and curious racers with an opportunity to explore the Spartan lifestyle and obstacles in a no-pressure, relaxed atmosphere. The weekend also features a “Hurricane Heat,” a unique endurance event, traversing on and off the Spartan race course.

      Spartan fans are invited to experience the event with exclusive viewing access to select obstacles and the start and finish lines, while also testing their own Spartan abilities in spectator challenges in the event festival. All attendees will enjoy live music and entertainment, raffles, vendor tents, and more.

      Spartan events focus on sport and athleticism, pushing the bodies and minds of competitors to the limit across miles of unforgiving terrain while conquering signature obstacles. With more than one million annual participants, and more than 200 events across more than 30 countries, Spartan is the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand.
