Spartan Races occur all over the United States and there are some events in Canada and the United Kingdom.  To find out where and when the nearest event to you will be, click on events

Why in the world wound people do this?  Because it’s hard, it’s challenging, it pushes you to your limits, but at the same time, it’s fun!  These are events for runners who want to go to the next level, who want to be challenged again.  They’re for runners who have lost motivation and are bored with just running.

One look at the Spartan Mission and you’ll know the reason why these events were created, to get more people to choose a healthy lifestyle and push themselves to places they never thought possible.  There are different levels of events too.  Watch the tutorial to get a better understanding of these levels.  You can even challenge all of your coworkers to do the Phalanx Challenge and build some teamwork.

If you have been looking for a new challenge, are bored with regular marathons and/or want to push yourself even further, check out the Spartan Race.  We at East Penn Foot & Ankle Associates love the Spartan Race and their mission to push people off the couch and to start living a healthy lifestyle!
