The World’s Leading Obstacle Race Event Series Hits Western Canada Starting in June

VANCOUVER, B.C. (RPRN) 05/20/14 — The world’s leading obstacle race event series will hit Western Canada starting June 14th, with stops in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer and Sun Peaks Resort in Kelowna.

Voted Outside Magazine’s Best Obstacle Race in 2012 and featured in Men’s Health Magazine as one of the 5 Best Obstacle Races of 2014, Spartan Race is first of its kind to have global rankings.  Spartan Race is a timed event series featuring races at three escalating distances in locations worldwide that culminate in a World Championship Finale in 2014 with cash and prizes for the champions. While featuring competitive elite heats, Spartan Races are for athletes of all levels and abilities and are designed to appeal to everyone from beginners to hardcore warriors and marathon runners alike, to have fun and cross the finish line.

More than 100,000 participants are expected to register for sixteen+ Spartan Races in three different categories (Sprint, Super & Beast) across Canada and more than 65,000 spectators are expected.

Spartan Sprint is 5km+ long and features over 15+ obstacles including mud runs and trail racing. Racers who complete the challenge earn their Spartan Agility Certification (Black Level). The top 3 males and top 3 females at each Spartan Sprint receive a free entry to the Super Spartan Race of their choice.

Spartan Super is over 12+km long and features over 20+ obstacles with mud runs and trails. Racers who complete the challenge receive their Spartan Endurance Certification (Red Level) and the top 3 males and top 3 females at each Super Spartan receive a free entry to the Spartan Beast Race of their choice.

Spartan Beast is nearly 20+ km long with over 25+ obstacles. Referred to the ‘obstacle race from Hell’, it’s the ultimate Spartan Race Distance.

Spartan Races’ Western Canada organizer & spokesperson Dean Stanton has been involved in similar sporting events for the past 3 decades as a participant and has been a race organizer for the last 10 years, including the 2009 World Police and Fire Games Triathlon in Maple Ridge.  He brings his considerable racing expertise to help elevate Spartan Races in Western Canada to the next level.
