Spartan Race: Washington DC Sprint Weekend

June 27 @ 8:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20 obstacles over 5K, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.

“Team name: DC Run Crew Spartans.

Time selection: choose any available time closest to 9:15am.

WHAT TO BRING

Your ID
Barcode (print or save your registration barcode to your phone. Click here for instructions on how to find it.)
Towel & extra (dry) clothes
Recommended: Headlamp and Camelback

WHAT NOT TO BRING

Outside food and drink (racers, fuel for the race is OK), Negative Attitude

WHAT TO WEAR

We recommend dressing in performance gear (NOT COTTON). Think compression tights or shorts and breathable tops made from water wicking material. Wear comfortable shoes that you’ve trained in, but beware, they are going to get dirty.

In addition to your clothes, consider fuel when planning for race day. For a Sprint distance you can normally get away with the water stations on course, but for our longer distances (Super, Beast, Ultra) we strongly suggest wearing a hydration pack, drinking a Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier, and bringing some Organic Honey Stinger waffles, gels and/or chews.

We have all you need to gear up for race day at the Spartan Shop.
