Spartan has announced the schedule for the 2020 Stadion Series, consisting of five events at some of America’s most beloved ballparks and stadiums for more than $47,000 in prize money.
Spartan Stadion events turn the traditional grounds of the country’s coveted ballparks and stadiums into 5K obstacle race courses. They are fast and furious, and blend the existing attributes of the facilities with 20 of the brand’s signature obstacles. The test of strength and agility will see competitors climb steep stairs, race down narrow concourses with sharp turns, and face tall walls, rope climbs, monkey bars, and more.
The 2020 Spartan Stadion series kicks off on April 4 at Citi Field, the home of Major League Baseball's New York Mets, in New York City. It will then move to AT&T Stadium (NFL's Dallas Cowboys) in Arlington, Texas on June 20, followed by the Angel Stadium of Anaheim (MLB's Log Angeles Angels) on July 18. Angel Stadium is a new location for the competitive series. It then heads to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia (MLB's Philadelphia Phillies) on Oct. 31 before coming to a close at iconic Fenway Park (MLB's Boston Red Sox) in Boston on Nov. 14. At Fenway, men’s and women’s leaders will be crowned Spartan Stadion Series Champions based on cumulative ranking points.
In addition to the elite competition, athletes can compete across 10 age group categories for bragging rights and a chance to step onto the podium, as well as open heats for racers of all skill levels. Spartan Kids races are held at each event for young athletes ages 4 and up.
Non-series Stadion events are also open, including races at Washington, D.C.’s Nationals Park (MLB's Washington Nationals) on May 16 and Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium (NFL's Arizona Cardinals) on June 27. More dates will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
