Spartan Race is back at Picton and you can expect something bigger and better than any race we’ve done before. 7km sounds easy, but with the challenges coming thick and fast, you’ll be up against a massive 30+ obstacles, with plenty of new ones to keep you on your toes, knees, or hanging in mid-air!
If you’ve never done a Spartan Race before, it’s the perfect one to get you started. You’ll get amazing value from your rego and an even bigger sense of triumph and elation as you overcome each challenge, working together with other racers and making friends as you go. And if you’re a seasoned Sydney racer - you know you won’t be disappointed. You can always rely on Spartan to bring it - the obstacles, free stuff from our sponsors, the fantastic festival area and an all round unbeatable race day experience.

Spartan Race challenges us to be fearless, confident and committed. These are qualities we want our kids to have, and there is no better way for them to have a go, trust their abilities and have fun than by taking on the Spartan Kids course. The Spartan Junior Race was created to help children and young adults make their life-long commitment to fitness and health.
These events provide an opportunity for young athletes to develop and test their fitness in a safe, exciting, outdoor environment.
Racers of all athletic abilities are encouraged to connect with their inner warrior as they run, walk, crawl and climb their way through a fun-filled obstacle course so they can experience just how Spartan strong they really are.
