The Spartan Super is Spartan's middle distance course. With a longer distance than the Sprint and more obstacles, the Super will test your endurance, perseverance and grit. The 13 Km+ Super packs more than 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles through tougher and more rugged terrain. The Super is the test en route to your this year's Spartan Trifecta. Start it at Donovaly in the middle of May, Sunday the 13th.

With 13 kms + 25 obstacles and the duration from 80 mins to 4 hrs, duration of the Donovaly race depends on the runner's condition. That's all you need to know... then just expect the unexpected. The course 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. We therefore point out that injuries may occur through falls, stumble, twists, slips etc. when overcoming the obstacles or on the course. Furthermore, dangers may be caused by falls of other participants thus jeopardizing their co-runners. Therefore you are requested to adjust your running speed and behavior to the visibility conditions, the respective obstacle and to the rush on the track.

You can only participate in this 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. Still not enough? Some obstacles are mandatory "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.

There are water stations on the course in Donovaly and one  at the finish. But this is Spartan style water stations so if you have specific needs for nutrition make sure to take that with you. Carry extra hydration and fuel if you think you might bonk or pass out from dehydration.

While you are waiting to race or looking for that extra workout, try out one of our festival challenges. You can test your power on the arm wrestling challenge, see how many burpees you can do at our burpees challenge or flip tires. Enter the official challenge time during the day and take a shot at winning a free ticket for next race and other cool prizes.
