Spartan Race is the world's best obstacle course race, with over 240 races in 25 countries around the world this year. Spartan Race is not your everyday running race - expect to run, climb, push, pull, throw and crawl through walls, hills, trees, mud, barbed wire and other challenging but fun obstacles.

All Spartan courses are designed to challenge you physically. We can’t spell out what exactly you will face, what fun would that be. However, we can assure there will be fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. Spartan Race is designed to pull you from your comfort zone and challenge you.

This two-day event is scheduled on September 15 and 16, 2018 at Ilanin Forest, Subic Bay, Philippines and feature all three signature Spartan courses Sprint, Super, and Beast race – which will be held for the first time in the Philippines.

Ocean Adventure, Adventure Beach Waterpark and Camayan Beach Resort are the official venue partner of the Spartan Race Philippines 2018.
