1. 2018 Spartan Race Open
Date: Nov 10 (Sat)
Time: 09:45 - 14:45 - SPRINT OPEN
Venue: Kam Tin Country Club, Yuen Long, N.T.
Without question the biggest test of all-round fitness there is, the infamous Spartan Race returns to Hong Kong this month with its signature obstacles designed to challenge your raw strength levels, mastery of bodyweight exercises and tolerance towards muddy conditions, all while stretching your cardiovascular endurance across a 5km course in the Open category.
Spectators are free to venture about the course to get up close to the action and watch aspiring Spartans tackle various stations (pretty much the definition of spectating).
While you'd have be really fit or suicidal to do so at this stage, you can register HERE to take part or for spectator tickets.
Either way, be sure to turn up in a pair of durable shoes and bring plenty of water.
