The route will take place throughout the city of Orte, for much of wooded nature (especially with regard to the Super race), with passages in the town, crossing the historic walls that surround it. The exact address of the Race start will be communicated, as usual just a few days before the event.
A small city just 63km away from Rome, Orte is a pillar of history and culture of Italy. For this reason, Spartan Race has decided to let you enjoy the experience of racing not only in the woods, but also between the ancient walls of the town, giving a look at the wonderful ""Orte Underground"", UNESCO heritage. Are you ready for the challenge?
It's a 5+km and a 15+ obstacles course. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. But please consider the following: the course is a cross country course which will lead you through woods and bushes, moats, and climbing obstacles as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots or wires and water and/or slippery surfaces. We therefore point out that injuries may occur through falls, stumble, twists, slips etc. when overcoming the obstacles or on the course. Furthermore, dangers may be caused by falls of other participants thus jeopardizing their co-runners.Therefore we ask you to adjust your running speed and behavior to the visibility conditions, the respective obstacle and to the rush on the track.
The Reebok Spartan Sprint: This is our shortest course. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 3+ Mile Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs more than 20 Signature Spartan Obstacles including mud, fire, walls and barbed wire. If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of.
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.
There is water stations on the course and at the finish. But this is Spartan style aid stations so if you have specific needs for nutrition make sure to take that with you. Carry extra hydration and fuel if you think you might bonk or pass out from dehydration.
Awards ceremony for the top finishers of the Spartan Race

Spartan Race challenges us to be fearless, confident and committed. These are qualities we want our kids to have, and there is no better way for them to have a go, trust their abilities and have fun than by taking on the Spartan Kids course. The Spartan Junior Race was created to help children and young adults make their life-long commitment to fitness and health.
These events provide an opportunity for young athletes to develop and test their fitness in a safe, exciting, outdoor environment.
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 so they can experience just how Spartan strong they really are.
There’s no dress code, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, under barbed wire and jumping fire.
Our elites recommend: performance gear (NOT COTTON), water packs, compression underwear, Clif bars and energy gel.
Our advice is to race in what you train in - new shoes on race day are NOT recommended.
Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event. We’ll email you when your photos are ready!
