If you’re a fan of OCR then we’ve got good news for you – Spartan UK has announced a new race inside the sports stadium at Twickenham in November this year.
It’s the first race of its kind to be held at such a major sports venue inside a sports stadium. It’s also billed as the biggest new sporting event to come to London in recent years. And what an opportunity to race at the iconic Twickenham Stadium, the home of England Rugby!
The Spartan Stadion is a 5km obstacle course race and it is the perfect distance for those competing in their first obstacle course race, first time Spartans or the experienced racer, who is looking to race against the clock. Competitors will weave their way through sloping walkways, navigate the winding corridors and scale the stadium stairs. The famous Twickenham rugby stadium will be packed with a combination of 20 unique and challenging CrossFit style obstacles, suitable for racers of all skills levels.
The obstacles include box jumps, stair climbs, low crawls and carries as well as some of the more traditional Spartan obstacles. It’s a fun and exhilarating course which will test racers speed and agility over a short distance. The race course will be mud free and the famous 30-burpee penalty for missing an obstacle, synonymous with traditional Spartan race events, has been reduced to 15 as this is a fast-paced course.
The Stadion race on Saturday 23rd November will be open to members of the public and competitors will have the option to take part as an individual or with a group of friends. Completing the course as a group is a great way of adding some extra fun and excitement to the race and keeping motivation going all the way to the finish line.
Spartan are expecting the event to be a sell-out, with over 4,000 people heading to South West London to take part in the race. There will be food and drink on offer throughout the day and spectators are also welcome, ensuring friends and family can cheer on their loved ones as they tackle the course. This will help to create a festival atmosphere never seen before at a Spartan race.
