Spartan races are held all over the world including here in the UK, the races are held over different distances, at different venues and are a test of your obstacle skills, strength and endurance, you can run a sprint to start which is around 5K all the way up to an Ultra Beast which is around 50k.
There is always a great feeling of friendship and camaraderie at an event which is what drew me into becoming a Spartan SGX Coach & Spartan Obstacle Specialist, it also influenced me to build Spartan like obstacles at OPP, so i can help coach new and veteran Spartans towards there next event.
If you want to take your Spartan training to another level or need some extra coaching I offer 1-1 coaching either for fitness or obstacles, or you can organise your own small group of up to 4 people if you want to train with friends, contact me for more details
Very pleased to have recently become only the second coach in the UK to acheive SGX Level 2 coach status, making me one of the most qualified coaches in the country
