Spartan Kids Race Oberon
Spartan Kids Races are all about getting muddy and having fun! Our mission is to inspire kids to get out, be active, and enjoy themselves. That’s why our Spartan Kids’ races encourage young Spartans to conquer their goals while having a whole heap of muddy fun in a non-competitive, safe, and supportive environment. Kids will run, balance, walk, crawl and climb their way through a fun-filled obstacle course that helps them understand what it’s like to be a Spartan! The races have been specifically designed to be suitable for kids of all ages and fitness levels.
WHAT IS A KIDS RACE?
The course will have junior versions of some of the adult obstacles. The Spartan Kids race is about 2-4kms depending on the course and your age. Spartan Juniors who are 4-9 years old will complete 1 lap, approximately 2km’s. Parents are encouraged to accompany their little ones on the course, to give them a hand when the obstacles get a little tricky.
The Big Kids; aged 10-14 years old will complete 2 laps of the course, which will be approximately 4km’s.
If you want to get the whole family involved, or a bunch of friends want to register together, you also have the option to create a kids team! If you’d like to, adults can choose to follow along the course and assist their child or spectate completely free of charge!
