The competition includes races for adults and kids, with the adult sprint race covering the entire 6.12 kilometers and including 21 classic obstacles.

For those participating in the adventure, it was not merely a physical trial but a test of wills amidst the splendor of nature, pushing participants to redefine their personal boundaries.

The Spartan Race is a globally popular series of obstacle races, including four core events: Sprint, Super, Beast, and Super Beast, targeting warriors worldwide who love life and challenges. With over 300 races held annually in more than 40 countries and regions worldwide, attracting over 10 million participants, it is the most popular and challenging obstacle race in the world.

As the first stop of the 2024 season in the Guangzhou-Foshan region, Lishui's beautiful scenery and adventurous challenges have attracted the attention of many participants. Apart from the race experience, participants can also enjoy the scenery of Lingnan water towns, appreciate pastoral landscapes, and savor leisurely moments. For the citizens of Guangzhou and Foshan, it's an international event right at their doorstep.

"We have made adjustments and upgrades to the race settings in the new season, hoping to provide warriors of all ages with a more profound race experience, allowing them to challenge and surpass themselves through such a warrior weekend, undergoing physical training and spiritual baptism," said Zhang Haoyang, project leader of the Spartan Race.
