Agoge China will be one of the most unique mental and physical challenges in history, taking place entirely on the Great Wall of China. Spartan has gathered its team of endurance experts, as well as input from explorers and athletes, to bring you an experience of a lifetime likely never to be repeated.
The entire event takes place on the most visually stunning and grueling expanses of wild Great Wall in the world – 600-year-old locations from the Ming Dynasty that few foreigners have the knowledge or expertise to see.
Participants are encouraged to stay at the Regent Beijing hotel in Beijing, China. There is a discounted rate for Agoge participants, email: email@example.com and ask for the Spartan Room Block when requesting a room.
Rooms will be $150/night including tax, breakfast and free wifi.
This hotel will be the Headquarters for our staff leading up to our Agoge departure. Our buses will be going to and from this location.
