We return to Aston Down Airfield with an expanded event list. This hilly terrain greatly increases the difficulty of the race; many commented last year that the Super felt more like a Beast.
Prepare for a relentless barrage of short climbs, alongside the traditional crawls, climbs and carries that make up our unique obstacle races. This will be the perfect training ground for Edinburgh which might be even tougher.
You will need to spend plenty of time training in the hills to get your body ready for this race, and make it across the finish line. Your legs will be screaming by the time you make it across the finish line.
If you love running up hills you will want to be here at Aston Down, with a Sprint, Super, and Hurricane Heat - brand new to the UK - on offer.
The Reebok Spartan Super: This is our middle distance course. With a longer distance than the Sprint and more obstacles, the Super will test your endurance, perseverance and grit. The 8+ Mile Super packs more than 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles through tougher and more rugged terrain. The Super is the test en route to your Spartan TRIFECTA.
There are some staples in our repertoire. There are also some venue specific and terrain inspired obstacles. We will not, however, spell it out for you. We do not have course maps. Each Spartan Race strives to surprise the athlete. Preperation for the unknown is a must.
There is fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. There WILL be obstacles to catch you off guard. Curve balls, so to speak. Get over it.
We’re here to rip you from your comfort zone. If you need a road map for each step of the way, then maybe this race isn’t for you.
3-4 aid stations on course with water, maybe some other goodies. We’ll finalize this as we get closer to race day. All racers should carry extra water and energy sources as this course will be very challenging.
