Spartan - the world-renowned obstacle race - pushes athletes of all ages to their limits. You too can become a Spartan and really go for it in the biggest outdoor playground!

The ultimate Challenge: The Spartan Race

The Spartan Trifecta Weekend lasts a total of three days and offers obstacle races with different distances. This gives children, young people and adults the chance to take part and demonstrate their courage, fitness and stamina.

In 2024, the European Championships will also take place in Zell am See-Kaprun.

With the Kids Open Heat, there will be a separate race for children from age four to 15 at the Spartan Trifecta Weekend: Distances from 0.8 to 3.2 kilometres and the number of obstacles will be staggered according to age.


The Spartan Festival will also take place parallel to the obstacle race: This guarantees the best entertainment outside the races.
