The Benefits Of Spartan Kids

Studies show that kids are less fit today than their parents were as kids. At Spartan, we’re dedicated to making healthy the new normal for the next generation through our kids obstacle course races. Active youth benefit from better physical health, are at lower risk of developing depression and earn higher grades than their less-active peers. At Spartan, we strongly believe that kids should run, climb, jump and get muddy. We don’t give them medals, they earn it. We’re bringing it back to the basics. Put down the electronics and make time to move as a family.

What Is Spartan Kids Race?

“Yes, it’s about fitness but it’s also mental: Kids gain a huge amount of confidence from participating. You get a kid who is so shy and he comes out of one of our races and has done something he never thought possible. You can see the change in them after they finish a race.”

-Justin Ross, Kids Race Director, U.S.
