Spartan Race: National’s Stadium
May 16 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Stadion was an ancient Greek running event and a historic, original Olympic Game. It got its name from the storied stadium it took place in. Now, we’re letting you compete in the legendary stadiums of today and add to their history. But unlike Ancient Greece, all levels are encouraged to take part and enjoy themselves. No matter your level set your own personal record and etch a new chapter in your own history book.

IMPORTANT RACE DOCUMENTS
IMPORTANT: Backpacks are NOT ALLOWED inside Nationals Park. You can bring a hand-held bag, but it must not exceed 16” x 16” x 8”. That’s about the size of a reusable grocery bag. The security team at Nationals Park takes this new bag policy seriously, in an effort to keep you safe. There will be no exceptions. Come prepared with the proper bag, Spartans. Learn more here.
You’ll find a Spartan bag check set up inside the park once you get through security. You can check your small bag there while you run.

WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend dressing in performance gear (NOT COTTON). Think compression tights or shorts and breathable tops made from moisture wicking material (you’re going to sweat). Wear comfortable shoes that you’ve trained in.
In addition to your clothes, consider fuel when planning your race day outfit. For a Stadion distance you can normally get away with the water stations on course, but if you’re someone who needs a lot of water, we recommend wearing a hydration pack.
We have all you need to gear up for race day at the Spartan Shop.
Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! We’ll email you when your photos are ready!
