Canada’s favourite obstacle course event is back again in 2015! And I am teaming up with them to give away a free entry! I am running in the Toronto race on July19th! Who wants to join me. Contest rules are at the bottom of the page.
Spartan Race is the world’s toughest obstacle course race, with over 30,000 competitors in Western Canada alone taking the challenge each year. This year’s Northern Alberta Sprint race will be held at the Tawatinaw Valley Ski Hill just outside of Westlock, Alberta on June 27th and 28th 2015. The Elite Heat will begin at 8:00am, followed by open heats of individuals and teams beginning at 8:30am and lasting into the afternoon. The Tawatinaw Valley Ski Hill is a one hour drive north of Edmonton and just off of Highway 2, and will offer more challenging terrain and more surprising obstacles than in previous years.
This year’s Vancouver Sprint race will be held in North Vancouver on Mount Seymour on June 6th, beginning at 8:00am with heats lasting into the afternoon.
