Iron Man UK

Where are when?

An Ironman Triathlon consists of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC).

It includes:
• A 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim,
• 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride
• Finished by completing a 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run,

It’s completed in that order and without a break and is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world.

Spartan Race UK

Spartan Race is a leader in the sport of obstacle racing, offering open heats for all fitness levels, as well as competitive and elite heats for those with something more to prove. The first of its kind to feature timing and global rankings, Spartan Race provides a proving ground for beginner and professional obstacle racers looking to test themselves in new ways across the world.

This is an epic obstacle run where you can choose from three different grades of difficultly:

Sprint – The Spartan Sprint puts endurance aside and tests your quickness through 5km+ which is loaded with 20+ obstacles. It’s a great distance for beginners!

Super – The Spartan Super is as much mental as it is physical, spanning over 13k tat are just as unforgiving as the 25+ obstacles the litter the distance.

Beast – The Spartan Beast is just plain hard. This the longest and most difficult race out of the three main races and is aptly named for its brutal 20km circuit with more than 30 obstacles that try to keep you from your finish line.
