All the Spartan races are perfect for the adventurous type and those seeking a new challenge. The adrenaline will be pumping as racers travel through beautiful forests, across stunning landscapes and look to conquer obstacles such as the Spear Throw, Inverted Wall, Monkey Bars and Barbed Wire Crawl. 

This year, the UK & Ireland Regional Series will see elite racers challenge each other at the three qualifying events - the South East Super, Ireland Sprint and Midlands Super - to become the top 3 men and women in the Spartan world. 

There is a total prize pot of £17,600 up for grabs, which includes £3,000 for the overall male and female series winners and £600 for the winners of the individual series races so competition looks like it will be fiercer than ever. Many athletes from other sports such as CrossFit and traditional trail running are flocking to OCR try their hand at both a new challenge and to attempt to win some of that prize pot. 

Spartan General Manager for UK and Ireland Sam Lansdale said: "Everybody at Spartan is absolutely thrilled to announce the schedule for the 2019 UK & Ireland series. With three different events of varying distance on offer, as well as a special event for kids, there really is a race for everyone to try their hand at this year. All our events will be bigger and better this year and we can’t wait to show everyone what we have in store!"

Spartan was founded by world-class adventure racer Joe De Sena in 2008 and has grown to become the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand, with more than 200 events in more than 42 countries across the globe.
