Sunday Family Heats


What is it?

In 2018, Spartan introduces “Family” heat options at select Kids Race events in the US. Parents / guardians and children aged between 10-13 years have the opportunity to race together on the 2 Mile Kids Course on Sunday afternoons, experiencing the excitement of a Spartan Kids course and obstacles, at a family friendly price.
