Crawl through mud, barbed wire and sprint to glory!
When we hear Spartan Race, we think of a few things; tough, rough and survival of the fittest! And then of course we thought of all of you. If there’s something we know about Sassy Girls after meeting hundreds of you over the last few years, we know you fit the description of always being up for a challenge! Strong is definitely the new skinny and gone are the days when these hardcore races were perceived as being male dominated. So we are taking the Spartan Race on this year and we want you all to come with us!
What is Spartan Race?
The Spartan Race is pioneering leader in the sport of obstacle racing, and will make its first ever appearance in Hong Kong this November… it’s set to be as challenging as ever! The event is named the “Spartan Sprint” which is their shortest distance race. It’s perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 6km sprint may be their shortest distance race but it packs 20 signature Spartan obstacles along the way. Participants will be divided into a maximum of 200 people per heat and you can choose between three race categories; the Elite Section is comprised of athletes competing to win prize money, test themselves against the very best, attract potential sponsors and rise to the top of the Spartan Race Point Series, and the Open Race welcomes weekend warriors, novice athletes, first-name racers and all others!
Most of us aren’t professional athletes, so a few of our Sassy Girls here at the office will be signing up to the Open Race. It may seem intimidating when you see some of the obstacles (we’re talking crawling through mud, spear throwing and rope climbing to name but a few!) but it’s the perfect way to get out of your comfort zone and experience an amazing rush of adrenaline as you smash through the finish line!
Whatever category you choose, the Spartan Movement is more than a race; it’s a way of life. All participants will be offered training workshops and given nutrition tips leading up to the event in order to prepare them to be their best possible selves. And with the right training, focus and determination, we think you Sassy Girls can even rise above and come out on top!
