SPARTAN KIDS






Mission – At Spartan Kids Race, our mission is to inspire children to develop a love for fitness at an early age. We provide age appropriate obstacle course race venues and race arenas will allow participants to build confidence while enjoying a robust outdoor three-dimensional setting. Our races are for children aged four (4) to thirteen (13).  We have two age groups within our races acknowledging that Kids are at very different stages in their growth across that span of nine years. Our "Jr. Spartan Kids” obstacle course races are intended for kids 4 - 8 years old and are about a half-mile in length.  Our “Varsity” Spartan Kids races are intended for older Spartans Kids aged eight (9) to thirteen (13).

Each child will receive a T-shirt and Finisher's Medal. 100% of the proceeds from Spartan Kids race benefit the Kids Fit Foundation. As a leader in the movement to help children learn life-long health and fitness habits, the Kids Fit Foundation strives to raise awareness and develop programs that educate, empower and inspire kids to become and stay fit.

So remember, Spartan Races are not only limited to adult fun! Bring your kids ages 4 - 13 and they can participate in their very own Spartan Kids Race. Just like you, they will enjoy the thrill of the obstacle course racing similar to the adult race but with appropriately sized obstacles and challenges.


Why Spartan Racing for Kids – Our Ethos?
Spartan Kids is about a return to the childlike sense of adventure that we’ve lost while getting sucked up into "normal life" of over-scheduled and over organized activities. Spartan Races wants to keep this sense of adventure alive in our kids BEFORE they lose it.

Today, a typical child devotes an average 7.5 hours each day to entertainment media: TV, video games, cell phones, and movies.

Physical activity is essential in helping children control weight, build lean muscle, reduce fat, and develop strong bones, muscles and joints let alone developing healthy life sustaining habits. The challenges in a Spartan Kids Race are ideally suited to building a fitter, stronger, and healthier youngster.

More importantly, the sense of fun and camaraderie inherent in our races will help instill within your kids a sense of excitement and respect for fitness producing - in time - a more invigorated child.

Spartan Races are about building a healthy and active community of people. Spartan Kids Race allow us to help build stronger families, a foundation for all vibrant communities.

  5. This year i ran the Blue Mtn. Sprint. It was my very first Spartan Race (and OCR). I quickly followed it up with the TriState NJ Super and Ohio Beast to get my Trifecta. I'm planning on going for my Double Trifecta in 2015!
