From the Spartan Race website:
5-8 km | 20-23 Obstacles | 40 minutes Fastest Time
The Reebok Spartan Sprint: This is our shortest distance. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 3-5 Mile Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs more than 20 Signature Spartan Obstacles. If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of.
At The BTG, we love Spartan Races! It's hard to describe, but even though they are physically difficult, they are TONS of fun, and really rewarding when you complete them.
Coach JP and the veteran members of the BTG Spartan Race Team will be running a Spartan Trifecta (all three race distances) again in 2017. At the Vancouver Sprint, Red Deer Super and Sun Peaks Beast, we plan to put the pedal to the metal and finish strong in 2017 instead of "just finishing", which was our goal the last two years.
That said, we plan to have a "rookie" team running at the Spartan Race Vancouver Sprint in addition to the competition team. The rookie team will be sticking together on the course and helping each other along the way, in true Spartan fashion. ANYONE can complete a Spartan Race Sprint with the support of a great team - come out and join us!
