Spartan Race Scotland - Sprint
Our Scottish venue sees Spartan Race in the ancient and magnificent city of Perth. This 5k race will offer a start in the very centre of the City, where Spartan Race runners will have the chance to run along crowd-lined streets, before heading out onto the hilly trails.
Entrants will take in the beautiful and diverse architecture of the ‘Fair City’, then cross the River Tay and head out onto the steep Kinnoull and Deuchny Hills to experience breath-taking views, whilst the energy drains from the legs. Throw in obstacles and we have an event that will test mental strength, endurance, grit and perseverance, and with 4 events to chose from, there really is something for all levels of athlete.

Early! Registration opens at 7:00am so please ensure to arrive an hour and a half before your start time. This gives you plenty of time to park, pick up your packet, drop your stuff at bag check, get yourself warmed up and ready to race! See you at the start line.
WHAT TO WEAR:
There is no dress code at Spartan, you will be running in mud and water, climbing hills, running through forests, rolling under barbed wire and jumping through fire. Our Elites recommend performance gear (not cotton), water packs, compression underwear and race fuel.
This is our shortest distance. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 5k Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs more than 20 Signature Spartan Obstacles. If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of.

WHAT TO WEAR
