Spartan Kids
The Experience

With your Race Pass you’ll gain access to events across the US. The ‘24 Race Season features 40+ destinations across the US.

Kids can race different distances with progressively harder obstacles, and while it’s all about fun, they’ll also gain grit and mental toughness too.


3 Course Types for Kids of All Ages (4-13 Years Old):

Ages 4-6: 1KM 8-10 Obstacles
Ages 7-9: 1.5KM 6-8 Obstacles
Ages 10-14: 3KM 10-12 Obstacles

What Parents Say

"I keep my kids active by doing Spartan races together! We run as a team and our backyard OCR course is coming soon. My son is still a wee bit small to be doing hikes together, but he's coming to each race and we both go home with brass."
–Michael, Florida

“Spartan is more than an event, it is a mindset. It teaches children to look at obstacles from a different perspective. My daughter chooses to see the bright side of things, to ask for help instead of just saying she can’t do it, and to help others; her involvement with Spartan contributed to that.”
-Melanie, Texas


4 to 14 year olds can take part without specific training. There’s even Special Spartans heats for kids with special needs. Kids simply need a desire to run outdoors and have fun. They need not be fearless or fit; both those things will develop after taking part! There are kids of all abilities and mindsets out there, and they all get to call themselves Spartans.

What To Wear

Comfortable clothes suitable for exercise and sturdy footwear is all that’s needed - just be aware that your kid’s gear will get wet and muddy! Pack a hat and sunscreen if it’s hot, extra layers if it’s cold, and a change of clothes and a towel for afterwards regardless of conditions. After-race refuelling of food and drinks can be purchased in the festival.

More Than A Race

It’s not just a weekend of racing and obstacles. When you race with Spartan, you join an incredible community where friendships are fostered, laughs are shared, and memories are made.
