Spartan is proud to announce that the United States Marine Corps will be an
official partner for the 2022 race season.
The Spartan community will have a new summer challenge, presented by the United States Marine Corps, which they can take part in from the comfort of their homes. Racers who complete the challenge will receive discounts on upcoming races throughout 2022. Additionally, the two organizations have collaborated on a unique Run with the Marines heat, which will be part of a nationwide recruitment drive aimed at participants aged 17-24, but it will be open to Spartans of all ages.
“At this moment, there is nothing more important to me than getting the young men and young women in this country off the couch, and off devices, and introducing them to the Marines and the Spartan way of life,” said Spartan CEO and founder Joe De Sena. “This partnership is a game changer.”
The partnership with the United States Marine Corps includes integration on Spartan’s digital platforms and social media accounts, along with the opportunity to run a Spartan race with Marines at 10 select races. Additionally, the United States Marine Corps will serve as the presenting partner for the West Virginia Trifecta Weekend on August 27-28 and the Nashville Spartan Event Weekend on October 15-16.
