Sprint München

Spektakulärere Hindernisse und noch mehr Fun und Action – das Spartan Race kehrt in den Münchner Olympiapark zurück. In München wartet ein Event der Superlative auf die wachsende Community des Obstacle Course Racings, mit der Kombination aus Spartan Sprint, Spartan Kids und der Hurricane Heat gibt es zudem drei Challenges für Teilnehmer. Mit dem lautstarken spartanischen Schlachtruf „AROO!“ hatten 2018 knapp 7.000 Spartanerinnen und Spartaner bei perfekten Laufbedingungen den Olympiapark München in ein riesiges Spektakel verwandelt und einmal mehr gezeigt: Obstacle Course Racing liegt im Trend. Das Spartan Festival öffnet bereits am Freitag seine Pforten. Neben der Abholung der Startunterlagen warten schon zum Auftakt zahlreiche Highlights auf die Teilnehmer – allen voran das Spartan Kids Race- und eine weitere Überraschung für Freunde der Nacht! Auch das beliebte Spartan Obstacle Workout findet am Freitag statt: Rope Climb, Multi Rig/Monkey Bars, Speerwurf und weitere Hindernisse lassen sich hier unter der Anleitung der Spartan Coaches vorab trainieren. Hinzu kommen das Spartan Group Workout  sowie weitere Angebote der Spartan-Partner sowie Gastro- und Merchandising-Angebote, die bereits den Freitag zu einem Event für Jung und Alt machen. Für den Spartan-Nachwuchs steht zudem das Spartan Kids Race auf dem Programm: Es wurde speziell für die jüngsten Spartaner bis 13 Jahre entwickelt, um möglichst früh das Verständnis für Fitness, Gesundheit und Natur zu vermitteln. Die Rennen bieten Kindern auf Strecken von 800 bis 3200 Metern die Möglichkeit, ihre Fitness und ihr Talent zu testen – Spaß und Abenteuer sind dabei ebenso vorprogrammiert wie die Erlaubnis von Mama und Papa, sich richtig schmutzig zu machen. Alle Kids erhalten zudem ein T-Shirt, eine Medaille und jede Menge Erinnerungen – wie die Großen! Höhepunkt des Spartan Festivals in München ist dann der Spartan Sprint am Samstag: Bei der Auswahl des Parcours rund um den Olympiaberg nutzen die Streckenplaner wie bereits in den vergangenen Jahren möglichst viele vorhandene, natürliche Hindernisse, hinzu kommen weitere künstliche Prüfungen. Länge und Schwierigkeit sollen wie im Vorjahr eine Überraschung sein: Die 6+ Kilometer und die 20 Hindernisse eines klassischen Spartan Sprints werden aber übertroffen, um Herausforderung und Spannung zu erhöhen. AROO!

Sprint München

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite among 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.

HEATS/WAVES: 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 heat. Enter the 8h30 "Elite" heat if you want to be as competitive as possible and race against the best.


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.


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.



It's a 5+km and a 15+ 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. However it increases your chances to get nice pics from the race afterwards...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 elsewise announced on the course. Also at obstacles. However we expect that you respect the other athletes.
