The Spartan Race


The competition: Spartan races are separated into three levels of difficulty making it an ideal event ideal if you are a beginner or a seasoned obstacle racer. The Sprint is the shortest race at 6km but it is still made up of over 20 obstacles. For the Super race, competitors have to overcome 25 different obstacles across 13km. The Beast, as the name would suggest, is the longest and hardest, the race is a 20km circuit with more that 30 obstacles.

Each of the cross-country races of winds through woods, ditches, rivers and are interspersed with natural and man-made obstacles. The Sprint race at the Paul Ricard Trifecta has been given another challenging twist as it takes place at night, in complete darkness with only a head torch to help navigate the extreme course.

The prize: At the end of every Spartan race competitors receive an impressive medal and those who complete all three levels become part of the “Trifecta Tribe.”

The cost: Prices vary depending when you enter and which distance you compete in, entry fees for the Spartan Circuit Paul Ricard Trifecta start at €49

How to get there: Moor up in La Ciotat, where 82 metre Sarafsa and 65.5 metre Infinite Shades have been spotted recently, and make the 40 minute journey in a private car over to the race’s start point at Le Castellet.
