We are super excited to announce that we have teamed up with Spartan Race, to offer our members some great offers, and free access to this great global event company. For those unfamiliar with Spartan, here's the low-down.
Spartan Race is a global leader in the sport of Obstacle Course Racing with varying difficulties for both beginners and elite runners to challenge themselves and test their limits. The series includes the very accessible Sprint (5km+, 20+ obstacles), the intermediate distance Super (13km+, 24+ obstacles) and the Beast (20km+, 30+ obstacles).
2017 was the most exciting year to date with their highest number of participants ever across more events than ever before, four new endurance disciplines and with new obstacles being rolled out as the season progressed. There has never been a better year to join the legions of loyal Spartan Racers across the UK.
2018 will see Spartan Race once again increase the amount of events as well as featuring our first race in Ireland and a brand new Scottish venue.
There is further information on the types of Spartan races at the end of this post.
From January we will be offering our members the opportunity to claim one of two free entries to any Spartan Race event. Each of the entries includes a free plus one, so you can take someone along with you to experience their absolutely awesome events.
Each month, from January, we will send out a call to members, on our monthly email newsletter, to email us to claim a free entry. We'll complete a draw, mid month, and send out details to the lucky winners for them to book their preferred event. The following month we'll do the same, previous winners will be excluded, to give everyone else a chance to win.

Some more information on Spartan Race to wet the appetite.
Introduction to Race Types
Spartan Race is a leader in the sport of obstacle racing, offering open heats for all fitness levels, as well as competitive and elite heats for those with something more to prove. The first of its kind to feature timing and global rankings, Spartan Race provides a proving ground for beginner and professional obstacle racers looking to test themselves in new ways across the world.
Three Main Race Types - View on the Spartan Website
The Reebok Spartan Sprint puts endurance aside and tests your quickness through 5km+ loaded with 20+ obstacles. A great starter distance for beginners, or a perfect test against time for the more advanced racer.
The Reebok Spartan Super is as much mental as it is physical, spanning over 13km+ that are just as unforgiving as the 25+ obstacles that litter the distance.
The Reebok Spartan Beast is our longest and most difficult race out of our three main race types and is aptly named for its brutal 20km+ circuit with more than 30 obstacles that try to keep you from your finish line.
For juniors under 14, we offer junior races. These races, 1.5km in distance, have an emphasis on teamwork, fun and getting muddy.
Think you can handle more? Prove it by signing up for one of our endurance races. Choose from the Ultra Beast(41+km, 60+ obstacles), Hurricane Heat (3-4 hours of gruelling team building), Hurricane Heat 12 Hour (12 hours of physically and mentally draining team and individual challenges), or the AGOGE, a 60-hour event that builds physical, tactical, mental, and team-based strength through training, testing and evaluation.
THANK YOU SPARTAN RACE :)

Spartan is more than a race; it’s a way of life. We believe that you can’t have a strong body without a strong mind, that you can’t grow without pressure, that obstacles help shift our frame of reference and make us more resilient. We believe that signing up for a race holds us accountable and keeps us motivated to train harder and eat healthier. With more than 200 events in over 30 countries, there’s no excuse not to take the first step.
