Spartan Trail is coming to the UK for the first time in 2021, and is the purest and rawest form of running you will ever experience. We are offering 10K and Half Marathon distances with no obstacles at three venues: Wales, Midlands and South East. Each race takes place on beautiful, rugged trails around the UK, and every trail has its own unique terrain and challenge.
Spartan has gathered the best-in-class to create a concept that strikes the right balance between professional trail events that elevate the sport and your overall experience, and providing an equally intimate, community spirited race - the things that make smaller trail races so fun.
Whether you have a set running goal or seeking to challenge yourself, the Trail is calling your name.
Spartan Trail is your introduction to running in the wilderness with no obstacles! In 2021 Spartan Trail will offer 10K and Half Marathon races that will take new runners to wild places, celebrate age group athletes and bring together a community of Spartans with one goal - to run their race. Are you a city runner looking for a change? Maybe you're bored of pounding the pavements. Or are you an avid off-road runner, searching for magical outdoor experiences and epic trails to conquer? This is your chance to participate in pure, uninterrupted trail running. No obstacles. No equipment. Just you and the great outdoors.
The Trail course is separate from the obstacle race course, the only thing they share is the Start and Finish Line.
Running often is a good place to start! Once you’ve chosen your race distance, training should be geared towards that, as there’s significant variation between training for a 10K and a Half Marathon. It’s good to consider your personal goals; are you after completion, a set time, or a podium spot? All are different, yet equally worthy.
Everyone gets finisher swag. You may be avoiding obstacles but you’re definitely not missing out on finish line goodies. Once you finish a Spartan Trail, all finishers will receive a brand new and exclusive Trail medal, finisher shirt, and the chance to relax at the Spartan Festival area. Don’t forget you will also get that epic sense of achievement after completing the trail, nothing beats that finish line feeling. Trail still has all the same awesome elements of a Spartan race just without the obstacles and burpees, so grab your gear and take on the trails.
