The Spartan Sprint is Spartan's shortest distance. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 5 kms + Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs more than 20 Signature Spartan Obstacles. If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of. At Donovaly the second Saturday of May.
Expect over 5 kms + 20 obstacles with the duration of the race ranging from 40 mins to 2 hrs – all depending on the condition of the runner. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. The course at Donovaly
is a cross country
course which will lead you through woods and bushes, moats, and climbing obstacles
as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots or wires and water and/or slippery surfaces.
You can only participate in the Donovaly
race if you have handed in your signed waiver when you pick up your racer packet. You will also receive a timing chip. It is mandatory to wear the timing chip at all times during the race on your wrist, otherwise you cannot be timed. You are not allowed to pass your timing chip to another athlete, as it is linked with your bib number. If you can't complete an obstacle you will have to suffer 30 burpees. But if like... However there are mandatory obstacles, the "no fail" obstacles - you will have to overcome the obstacle otherwise your are disqualified. Passing an obstacle without overcoming it or not doing the burpees will lead to disqualification. At each obstacle and along the course we have marshals checking that every athlete is following the course and obstacles.You are not allowed to cut the course. You can overtake others anywhere unless elsewise announced on the course. Also at obstacles. However you are expected to respect the other athletes.
Strength comes in numbers! Become a part of a team to help you and others get through the event, save money. Sign up as a team! All you need is to have at least 4 members. Every team with 4 or more team members automatically joins the team ranking - you do not need to register your team for that ranking. In order to be ranked, 4 team members need to finish the race.
