Spartan Kids Race – Fun and unique training opportunity!

Looking for a unique training experience over the school holidays for your junior team?  

Spartan Australia is bringing the world’s best kids’ obstacle course race to the Latrobe Valley these April school holidays, and would love to have your club or team involved.

Spartan’s Kids Latrobe Valley will be held April 15-16 at Civic Park, Drouin and waves will run every 45 minutes from 9am until 2:45pm on both days.

The Spartan kids’ course will feature 2km of pure muddy joy suitable for children of all fitness levels. Junior Spartans between the ages of 3-13 are encouraged to come along and conquer specifically designed Spartan obstacles while having a whole heap of muddy fun in a non-competitive, safe, and supportive environment.

We’re encouraging kids from across Gippsland and as far and wide as Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, to join us for the biggest event of school holidays, and to find out what it means to race like a junior Spartan!

Our kids’ courses provide the perfect strength and agility training to help kids learn new teamwork skills they can take back to their own sport. So, bring your team down to our Spartan Kids’ race and let them train their minds and bodies on our specially designed kids’ obstacle course!

Kids will receive all sorts of freebies; like a badass 2019 Spartan Kids’ Medal, a Spartan Kids’ T-shirt, and a Spartan Kids’ headband! Parents are welcome to run on course with their kids, free of charge!
