The Special Spartans heat is an obstacle course race designed to test resilience, strength, stamina, and ability to overcome adversity. Sports are a universal language which unites people on and off the field of play, cutting across lines of race, ethnicity, education level, social status, and economic background. The Special Needs Spartan Race paves new ground by increasing collaboration, decreasing stigma, and raising awareness. Most importantly, we provide a safe and structured athletic event where individual differences are embraced and where children and families feel comfortable to express themselves and engage fully in the Spartan community.
