Spartan Race rolled into Arizona on Saturday, February 27, 2016 with a sprint distance of just over 4 miles. As they do at every US Spartan Race in 2016, two types were offered for the Kid's Race, the 1/2 mile "Jr. Varsity" and the 1 mile "Varsity" distances.
I ran a Spartan, you jumped over a few things, and you were done. The BattleFrog was way more challenging and exciting. It was more like the grown up course. It copied off of it, except there were smaller obstacles for the kids. The medals we got at the end were really cool. They had a frog with the American flag, and there were a lot of people cheering us when we got to the finish. The volunteers were really nice, and they helped a lot with anybody who needed it.
