SPARTAN
Note From Joe
Twenty years ago, Joe De Sena hatched an idea for an extreme endurance challenge, modeled after the philosophy of ancient Sparta. After 10 long years of obstacles, it finally came to life: On May 16, 2010, ten years ago today, the first-ever Spartan race was held in the rolling hills of Williston, Vermont.

We’ve come a long way since that day. In 10 years, we’ve ripped 10 million Spartans off the couch, transforming lives in over 40 countries around the world. To look back on everything this community has done, we ran down memory lane and reflected on the most historic races from the past 10 years.

This is a huge milestone. But we’re Spartans. We don’t celebrate by resting on our laurels. We immediately look towards our next challenge. And what could be a better challenge to top off 10 years of Spartan than a race?

We have two huge upcoming chances to race, even if you’re stuck at home: We’re officially re-starting the 2020 season in Jacksonville on June 13th, and we’re hosting Project Unbreakable: The World’s Largest Virtual Race, powered by Rakuten. Every Spartan around the world is invited to join Project Unbreakable on May 30, and that means you. We can’t wait to see you out there.

Now that your next challenge has arrived, it’s time to start training. Here’s how to get back in shape, get fit fast, or, if you’re a racing newbie, start working to conquer your first race.

Thanks for joining us as we reach the finish line of our first 10 years. Here's to the next 10, and beyond.

AROO! AROO! AROO!
