Hong Kong Sprint, 2017

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20-23 obstacles over 3-5 miles, you'll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.

Elite Masters Category: This is a unique title given to our elite racers aged 40+. Trophies are awarded to the top female and male in this category.

Competitive Heats: 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, not money.

Competitive racers commit to sportsmanship, honoring rules and guidelines, and performing at their best. In addition, racers in the Competitive category will be able to track their results throughout the race season to see how they stack up against their peers.
