Taranto Super

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 24-29 Spartan Obstacles and 8-10 miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

Please also bring your printed and signed race waiver and your id document, to avoid long queing- you will receive the race waiver by email couple of days before the event.

Heats: Spartan Race operates with heat starts. Heat size depends on the race course but will be between 150 and 250 athletes. Heats will leave every 15 minutes after the first one. Register yourself at the "Elite" heat if you want to be as competitive as possible and race against the best.




It's a 13+km and a 18+ obstacles course. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. But please consider the following: the course is a cross country course which will lead you through woods and bushes, moats, and climbing obstacles as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots or wires and water and/or slippery surfaces. We therefore point out that injuries may occur through falls, stumble, twists, slips etc. when overcoming the obstacles or on the course. Furthermore, dangers may be caused by falls of other participants thus jeopardizing their co-runners.Therefore we ask you to adjust your running speed and behavior to the visibility conditions, the respective obstacle and to the rush on the track.

You will receive a bib number, but it is not mandatory to wear it...You are not allowed to pass your bib number to another participant. You can only participate in the race if you have handed in your signed waiver when you pick up your racer packet. You will also receive a timing chip. It is mandatory to wear the timing chip at all times during the race, otherwise you cannot be timed. You are not allowed to pass your timing chip to another athlete, as it is linked with your bib number. If you can't complete an obstacle you will have to suffer 30 BURPEES. However there is obstacles that are "no fail" obstacles- you will have to overcome the obstacle otherwise your are disqualified. Passing an obstacle without overcoming it or doing the burpees will lead to disqualification. At each obstacle and along the course we have marshals checking that every athlete is following the course and obstacles. You are not allowed to cut the course. You can overtake others anywhere unless otherwise announced on the course. Also at obstacles, however we expect that you respect the other athletes.
