City events aren’t that common, so if you spot one near you, give it a go. These races feature timing, and have Open heats only. They’re also different to both Sprint and Stadion events in both their layout, and the types of obstacles you’ll tackle.
City events feature a special collectible swag with City’s unique white color. This is some bling that you’ll rarely see around, so if you’re a return racer or just starting your Spartan collection, get your hands on it while you can.

Hydration and energy replenishment
Spartan is a true all-round physical and mental test. Ideal for runners, weightlifters, functional fitness fans, and newbies alike, there are parts of each Sprint that push you in all areas. Focus training on areas you’re not so good at, and if that’s all of them, no problem. Spartan brings together world-class elite athletes, to people just trying to get active.
City requires little more than standard sports attire. City is intense and of relatively short duration, so you may want to wear compression apparel to help you with the explosive movements and reduce muscle fatigue. A pair of shoes designed for pavement use will help with comfort and speed. You’ll have access to regular hydration points at aid stations.
