Situated on 5,000 acres of beautiful scenery, there can be no better backdrop for tackling a 21km+ run, with over 30 obstacles. The terrain will be flat, but the challenge will be far from easy, as we are offering the usual Spartan difficulty. This course will push even the toughest Spartan to their very limits.
Windsor Great Park is easily accessible from London and the South-West. It is a great place for a day out with your family. There is plenty to do after the race; why not explore the deer park and walking trails… when you’re not caked in mud.
On the day before, the park will also host the final Spartan Sprint of the season. Making this weekend, the perfect opportunity to collect the final two wedge pieces you might need to complete your Trifecta medal. The more elite members could even complete the prestigious double Trifecta, and write their names into Spartan Race lore.
All finishers receive a free beer upon completion of the event. You will certainly feel as though you have earned it after 21km+ of tough obstacle racing. But that will only make the beer taste better than any you have previously enjoyed.
