On Saturday, September 28, participants gather at Citizens Bank Park at 8 a.m. before taking off on the approximately 3-mile Pennsylvania Spartan Sprint. Participants run through stands, a warning track, and concourses, scale walls and climbing ropes, and power through gladiators. All racers receive a finisher's medal.
Pennsylvania Spartan Sprint
Seven extreme athletes and one Royal Marine banded together to design Spartan Races' intense miles-long courses, each strewn with obstacles to test resilience, stamina, and strength. Clad in event T-shirts, runners collect smudges and stains as they clamber across mud pits, slide unscathed under barbed wire, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as three miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.
