Course Description:

As part of the Gatcombe Park and Aston Farm estate, we're running the first Spartan Super of 2016. Just a month after our Sprint at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, we have another event with a royal twist. This muddy Super race will be held in the in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds, at Aston Down Airfield, just six miles from Prince Charles’s family home in Tetbury and at the home of Peter and Zara Phillips and their families.
It is always a pleasure to hold Spartan events in places with such gorgeous scenery. You will come to see why the royals are so keen to live among the rolling hills of the south Cotswolds and you are sure to be especially appreciative when you are caked in mud and ready to shower.
We hope you are feeling ready to be challenged by a course which has over 20 obstacles over 13km+. It is perfect for anyone new to Spartan or a seasoned athlete looking for a new challenge with a truly muddy race. Do not let the relative flatness of Aston Down airfield (where the festival site is located) mislead you. This will be a real challenge!
Imagine yourself enjoying the customary free post-race beer in lovely Aston Down. It’s not every day you can say you’ve drank beer in such royal surroundings. You can start the 2016 season off in style, by earning your first Trifecta wedge piece at this challenging Super. The following month we have a Stadium Sprint at Old Trafford, where you can continue earning wedge pieces.

There are some staples in our repertoire. There are also some venue specific and terrain inspired obstacles. We will not, however, spell it out for you. We do not have course maps. Each Spartan Race strives to surprise the athlete. Preperation for the unknown is a must.

There is fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. There WILL be obstacles to catch you off guard. Curve balls, so to speak. Get over it.

We’re here to rip you from your comfort zone. If you need a road map for each step of the way, then maybe this race isn’t for you.

Aid Stations:

3-4 aid stations on course with water, maybe some other goodies. We’ll finalize this as we get closer to race day. All racers should carry extra water and energy sources as this course will be very challenging.

Awards:

All racers are chip timed for race results

Other:

Junior Spartan Races are held in conjunction with all 2016 UK Spartan races. This race was created to help Junior Spartans foster a life-long commitment to fitness and health. These events provide an opportunity for young athletes to develop and test their fitness in an exciting, outdoor environment where having fun and getting dirty is mandatory! Racers of all athletic abilities are encouraged to connect with their inner warrior as they run, walk, crawl and climb their way through a fun-filled obstacle course that helps them discover just how Spartan Strong they really are!

Try and leave as much stuff as you can at home or in your car— but for the stuff you can't leave behind, or that you don't want covered in mud and water, we will have a secure place to check in your gear. Check in is £2/bag cash. Please make sure all items stored at Bag Drop fit inside the plastic Spartan Bag you will receive at parking. No other bags will be accepted at bag drop.
There’s no dress code, per se, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, crawling under barbed wire and jumping fire. So choose wisely my friends.
Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! You don’t have to stay up all night checking the site for this – we’ll email you when your photos are ready
