½MI TO 2+ MI


A real obstacle course for children aged 4 to 15! Running, jumping, climbing, crawling... a 100% safe experience where young Spartans will gain confidence while having fun. Kids over 11 can even take up the challenge of the Kids Competitive format: timed races in which they can compete against each other. Kids Competitive races are refereed just like the big boys, and also come with their own special prize-giving ceremony.

Races for older kids increase the challenge, and offer timed heats to introduce them to competition.

These are family events – relatives and friends are welcomed!


Children aged 11 to 15 taking part in the Competitive format qualify for the final podium and special prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places (trophies and gift).

“I never lose. I either win or I learn. When I fail an obstacle, I get up and try again, and get smarter, stronger and faster. I will never stop trying."

"I keep my kids active by doing Spartan races together! We run as a team and our backyard OCR course is coming soon. My son is still a wee bit small to be doing hikes together, but he's coming to each race and we both go home with brass."
- Sébastien, Lyon

“Spartan is more than an event, it is a mindset. It teaches children to look at obstacles from a different perspective. My daughter chooses to see the bright side of things, to ask for help instead of just saying she can’t do it, and to help others; her involvement with Spartan contributed to that.”
- Melanie, Marseille

Kids ages 4- to 14 can take part without specific training. Kids simply need a desire to run, be outdoors and have fun. They don’t need to be fearless or fit; both those qualities develop as they participate. Our races are inclusive to children of all abilities and mindsets, and at the end of the day, they all get to call themselves Spartans.


Spartan Kids need to wear sports clothing and shoes - they need to be comfortable and practical. Beware, the final outfit will almost certainly be wet and muddy! If it's hot, bring a hat and sunscreen, and if it's cold, extra layers. We also advise you to bring a change of clothes for after the race. We provide food and drink after crossing the finish line.
