Iceland Ultra World Championship

WILL YOU MAKE HISTORY THIS DECEMBER? Picture this. You're running through epic Icelandic scenery, overcoming brutal Spartan obstacles, in golden twilight and the darkest of nights where the sky above you is lit up by the mystical glow of the Northern Lights. You experience the electric atmosphere of the first 24hr indoor Spartan festival. You leave Iceland with a swag of limited edition collectibles, and maybe even a share of prize money.  Spartan Race invites you to enter the first-ever 2017 Ultra World Championship in Iceland. This is ultra-endurance history in the making, with 24 hours of non-stop action on and off the course in one of the most attractive destinations in the world. You'll also get a sneak preview of the all-new 2018 Spartan Ultra season.
