The Spartan Kids Race Is The World’s Largest Obstacle Course Race
Kids from across the globe will put their physical and mental grit to the test when Spartan hosts its second annual Spartan Kids Race World Championship December 7 outside Los Angeles in Castaic Lake, CA.
The Obstacle Course Race (OCR) will see qualified competitors in two age groups, 10-11 and 12-14-years old vying for more than $15,000 in prizes on the most challenging Spartan Kids race course to date.
“The inaugural Spartan Kids World Championship saw some of the best young athletes from a dozen countries giving it their all on the course,” said Spartan Kids Race Director Justin Ross. “Their passion and dedication to the sport was truly inspirational, and as a result we expect this year’s event to bring an even larger field from all over the globe. It’s always incredible to see kids step outside of their comfort zones and put one another to the test and we can’t wait to cheer them on.”
The Spartan Kids World Championship is a gated event, open to kids ages 10 to 14 year’s old who have placed top three in their age and gender group at any Spartan Kids race around the world from November 5, 2018 through December 6, 2019.
The young competitors will face the greatest challenge of the Spartan Kids season, a 3-mile (5-km) course with more than 40 signature obstacles including the rope climb, low crawl, spear throw and dunk walls – requiring them to run, climb and crawl across varying terrain.
The top five male and female finishers in each age group will receive tiered prize packages, and the podium finishers will receive limited edition award plaques. In addition to the championship race, kids ages four to 14 can participate in open races throughout the day with no qualification necessary. All competitors will receive a Spartan Kids Race finisher t-shirt and medal.
The Spartan Kids World Championship takes place during Spartan’s Los Angeles Sprint weekend at Castaic Lake State Recreation area and also features Spartan’s signature adult “Sprint” race featuring 20 obstacles across three-miles of unpredictable terrain.
