Not all races are created equal, they say..
On 15th November 2015, there will be tears shed, fears conquered and probably some blood spilled
Only the toughest, meanest and craziest people will survive this obstacle course on an outdoor terrain; that has been voted to be the best in the whole wide world. ESPN describes the Spartan Race as “a true test of will.”
In January 2013, Spartan Races announced that Reebok had become its event title sponsor, thus creating 2013’s “Reebok Spartan Race Series” and this race has finally set foot in Singapore! Woohoo~
Upon signing up, each Spartan-to-be will receive a goodie bag worth $200, including an official Spartan Race quick- dry tank top. On Race Day, all racers will receive the coveted official Spartan Race Finishers tee, race medal, coconut water and a coupon for a free celebratory beer upon crossing the finish line
For the fiery butt-kicking soul, you can now be a part of the first ever Reebok Spartan Race Singapore competitive Elite Heats! The top 3 fastest male and female Elite racers will win top cash prizes and a phenomenal Spartan Race trophy
People of all ages, shapes, sizes and walks of life have completed Spartan Races.. just don’t give up! You’ll simply need to do what your body does best – bend, crawl, carry, climb, hang, jump, lift, lunge, pull, push, run, sprint, squat and twist.. Exactly what our body has been designed to do for over millions of years
When you’re done, you’ll be begging for more.. AROO!!
SPARTAN JUNIOR RACE
Not leaving out the adrenaline-filled-dirt-loving juniors.. Little racers will run, balance, walk, crawl and climb their way through a fun-filled obstacle course that helps them discover how Spartan Strong they really are. Hands off the iPads and iPhone already! Get ready to face the sun, mud in your hair and who knows what else you’ll bring back :p
The Spartan Junior Race was created to help young athletes of all athletic abilities foster a life-long commitment to fitness and health. These events provide an opportunity for racers to develop and test their fitness in an exciting, outdoor environment where having fun and getting dirty is mandatory! The only person, i guess, who wont be too pleased would be the one doing the laundry afterwards :p
Racers can only be aged from 4 to 13 years old
Race Distances are as follows: 0.5 km (4 yrs old), 0.5-1km (5-7 years old), 1 km (8-10 years old), 2 km (11-13 years old) For more details, kindly click over here
For 5+km, you’ll be faced with 20+ obstacles. Calling them “obstacles”, that’s relative to some people, isn’t it? Hehehe.. Complete the race at your own pace if you wish.. But if you fail an obstacle along the way, you will be summoned 30 burpees before advancing. They wont say where yet and we wont know how exciting this race would be.. However, you can be assured there will be fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. What fun it’ll be!
Dont be too surprised if you might also be competing against the hardcore veterans too!
This sprint race is broken down into the following categories
Elite Heat – First flag off of the race day at 7am. For the most competitive male and female, highly suitable for the toughest of the fittest lot.
