Oberndorf / Tirol Beast

Spartaner kehren nach Oberndorf/Tirol zurück! - ob Anfänger, Profis oder Mini-Spartaner - alle können mitmachen! AROO! AROO! AROO! Mit dem antiken Schlachtruf der Spartaner kehrt das Reebok Spartan Race 2017 nach Oberndorf in Tirol in die Tourismusregion Kitzbüheler Alpen zurück. Nach dem großen Erfolg im September 2016, bei der über 7.000 Spartaner erneut für einen Teilnehmer-Rekord bei einem Rennen dieser Art in der Alpenrepublik sorgten, steigt die dritte Auflage genau ein Jahr später rund um das Stöcklfeld in Oberndorf zwischen Kitzbüheler Horn und dem Steinbruch der Hartsteinwerke Kitzbühel.   Wieder im Programm: Trifecta-Wertung, Spartan Festival, Hurricane Heat, Spartan 300 und Spartan Juniors Race Organisation und Tourismusverband setzen auf das erfolgreiche Event-Konzept aus 2016. Rund um die sportlichen Wettkämpfe wird ein attraktives Rahmenprogramm für die ganze Familie geboten. Bereits am Freitagnachmittag ist das Festivalgelände geöffnet. Als großes Warm-Up findet wieder der packende Ausscheidungswettbewerb „Spartan 300“ statt - ein Rennen über 300 Meter mit Hindernissen gespickt rund um das Festival Gelände. Und am frühen Sonntagmorgen steigt erneut das Spezial-Format „Hurricane Heat“, bei dem vier harte Stunden lang Spartaner und Trainer im Team gemeinsam einen Parcours absolvieren. Für den Läufer-Nachwuchs im Alter von vier bis elf Jahren steht am Freitag und am Sonntag wieder ein Juniors Race auf dem Programm. Und für die Zuschauer gibt es auf dem Spartan-Festival in Oberndorf eine Challenge, bei der Mann und Frau verschiedene Hindernisse ausprobieren können. Catering-Stände sorgen für das leibliche Wohl. Darüber hinaus steigt am Samstagabend eine Finisher-Party mit DJ-Musik. Angeboten werden bei dem TRIFECTA-Wochenende erneut alle drei SPARTAN Distanzen. Dabei ist nicht nur absoluter Profisport angesagt! Das SPARTAN SPRINT-Rennen ist für all jene, die fünf bis sieben Kilometer laufen können und Spartan-Luft schnuppern wollen – Fun und Teamgeist stehen hier im Mittelpunkt. Der 13+ Kilometer lange SPARTAN SUPER-Wettbewerb umfasst bis zu 30 Hindernisse und richtet sich an sportlich ambitionierte Spartaner. Gleichzeitig ermöglichen die Veranstalter mit dem SPARTAN BEAST den Fans des Obstacle Cours Racings die selten angebotene und daher begehrte Königsdistanz mit mehr als 23 Kilometer Laufstrecke und bis zu 40 Hindernissen.

CATEGORIES:

The Elite Category:

At the far end of the spectrum is the Elite category. These athletes are competing to test themselves against the best of the best, attract potential sponsors, and rise to the top of the Spartan Race Point Series.Elite Racers, like all Spartan athletes, commit to flawless sportsmanship and adhere strictly to the race rules and guidelines. Racers who fail to follow these guidelines risk disqualification.

The Competitive Category:

Our newest option, the Competitive category, is designed to address the gap between our Open class racers and our Elites. Competitive Racers will be expected to follow the same rules and standards as the Elite racers. These racers compete for glory and bragging rights. As a major component of the rapid evolution of obstacle racing as a sport, Competitive racers will start immediately following the elite waves, taking advantage of a wide open course. Competitive racers commit to sportsmanship, honoring rules and guidelines, and performing at their best.

Open:

The Open category is for everyone, period. Weekend warriors, novice athletes, first-time racers, and teams are all welcome here. The Open category offers the same opportunity as the Competitive and Elite categories to get far outside your comfort zone, test your body’s limits, and experience the awesome rush of the finish line. However, there’s no pressure to push your pace.

Trifecta Weekend Racers:

This is not an actual category, but a special service to all those that race the three formats (Sprint, Super, Beast) in the same weekend. You can race Elite, Competitive or Open- but if you do the three races in the Oberndorf event you automatically get all these services.

RACE COURSE

 

It's a 20+km and a 30+ obstacles course. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. Also for 2017 we will again design an exciting and challenging race course with spectacular views and a great mix of natural obstacles and massive builds. 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.

Junior Spartan Race is for all ages! Children over 4 years old are encouraged to compete in a Junior Spartan Race to have fun in nature, learn something new and receive a medal like adults.

 

The Spartan Race is not for adults only!

Why obstacle racing for kids? Promote child-like adventure and instill a healthy lifestyle.

Spartan Race is not only limited to adult fun! Bring the kids who can participate in their very own Spartan Junior Race.

Spartan Junior promotes health, physical activity and FUN! Spartan Junior is about a return to the childlike sense of adventure that we have lost while getting sucked up into “normal life” of over-scheduled and over-organized activities. Spartan Race wants to keep this sense of adventure alive in our kids BEFORE they lose it.
Today, a typical child devotes an average 7.5 hours each day to entertainment media: TV, video games, cell phones, and movies. Get up, get out, and get gritty!

Date:
September 8 and September 10, 2017

Distances/Ages:
4-7 years, 8-10 years, 11-13 years. Distances: depending on age group juniors will complete a distance of 400m - 1.2km.

The organizer undertakes all necessary actions to make the Junior race as safe as any possible.

Race with your friends or colleagues! It's probably the most extraordinary, fun experience you'll ever have!

Team Results

  • Every team with 5 or more team members automatically joins the team ranking- you do not need to register your team for that ranking. In order to be ranked, 5 team members need to finish the race.
  • The team members do not have to be in the same heat, but can race in different heats. It will increase your team experience and you can run as a team in the same heat, but it's not mandatory.
  • A team can be composed by male and female athletes, but there is no separate ranking by gender.
  • Decisive for the team ranking is the time of the 5th athlete of the team in finish. It's not about the best 5 or more individuals but about the best team effort. So run through the course as a team and you will get in with a better team time.

In 2016 the Hurricane Heat premiered in Austria in the Spartan Oberndorf/Tirol event. In 2017 we will see again a Hurricane Heat at the event weekend of the Spartan Oberndorf/Tirol event. Stay tuned, we will announce here prior to the race the registration details.

Spectators are welcome to the event and you can experience an extraordinary day with various activities at the Spartan Race Festival. Try out our Festival obstacles, bring your kids to the Juniors Race or just enjoy watching others fighting through the race. Access is for free, but you might need to register at the entrance depending on the venue obligations.
