Spartan Race is this Saturday! The Drive Fitness Team is ready to go but we're still open for last minute team members to join us. If you'd like to join our team find out more here...

*Notice for those already registered - I'll release a team update later in the week once we've heard form Spartan HQ regarding our start time. This will cover meet time times & locations etc. Keep an eye on you inbox because Spartan will contact you directly with a race pack.


Welcome to Spartan Australia’s first race of 2017. Situated in the Gold Coast hinterland less than hour from Brisbane and GC, this new location will showcase Spartan's commitment to course development and obstacle evolution.

With a choice of a 7km Sprint distance (great for first time Spartan racers) a 14Km Super distance for those looking to go further or the 21km Combo, where you can race both distances in the one day and earn your unique combo patch. What better way to kick off the new year!

The weekend will also include Junior Spartan Races for kids 3 – 9 and 10 – 14 running throughout Saturday and a 4Hr Hurricane Heat on the Sunday morning 07:00 to 11:00.


Distance: 7km
Obstacles: 20+
Terrain:plains, creeks and native bushland just 50 min from Brisbane, GC and Ipswich.

Sprints are a great starting point for anyone that’s new to the Spartan experience with a 7k/20 obstacle course that’s fun for everyone from beginners to seasoned athletes. It’s the perfect motivation to get you and your friend’s leaner, fitter and yes…muddy! The Sprint offers plenty to test the dedicated athlete too and gives all Spartans a good start to achieving their Trifecta medal in 2017. Running, climbing, jumping, swinging, crawling and dodging are all part of the course in a Spartan Race. 99.9% will finish, and 100% will earn the respect deserved by a true Spartan.
Avg. finish times: 1.5 hours
