Spartan has announced its virtual alternative to races that have been delayed by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
From the Spartan Website:
Even though the Spartan season is on hold, we’re still giving you a way to race.
For every event we postpone, we’ll hold a Spartan Virtual Race — same weekend, same distance, same obstacle count. These events are open to racers around the world. No registration is required.
Each Virtual Race consists of a run or running equivalent (e.g. biking, swimming, etc.) and obstacles. Instead of cargo nets and barbed wire, you’ll take on push-ups, mountain climbers and more to finish. Earn a global leaderboard spot, virtual medal, certificate and, of course, unlimited bragging rights.
Each race has its own list of exercises and running distances (along with cardio equivalent)
Example: Spartan Sprint
