What else do we need to know?

  • All kids and parents must have a signed waiver to enter the venue.
  • We suggest planning to arrive 90 minutes prior to your child's start time. 
  • No discount codes can be used for a kids race registration unless otherwise specified by a promotion.
  • Each FAMILY receives 2 free spectator passes when they pick up their kids bib on race day. Spectators must be physically present and turn in a completed waiver to receive their free pass.
  • The spectator pass will cover entry into the entire spartan event including the adult race, festival area, and kids race. 
  • Each registration is valid for 1 race. If your child would like to run a 2nd race, you will need to pay two full registration fees. (Second race includes t-shirt & medal)
  • Bibs and start times are not posted online prior to race day for safety reasons. Bib numbers will be assigned when you check your child in at the "KIDS REGISTRATION" tent. 
  • Please remember that children under 14 are not to be left alone in the festival area while you are racing or for any reason.
  • If you forget which distance or starting time you signed up for please email US@spartan.com. (Please include the child's full name)
