The Spartan Race continues to grow in popularity all the time, and you can now take part in this gruelling obstacle race in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

There are races held throughout the year, and many people consider this race to be the ultimate challenge, particularly as only around 10% of entrants manage to successfully complete the race.

People can enter this race individually or as a team, and there are cash prizes for both. So there is a real incentive to train for this event beforehand in order to compete for these cash prizes.

There are different types of races at each venue. All of them are extremely demanding because there are different types of obstacles to overcome, and they vary from a 1 mile race to a gruelling race over marathon distances.

Unfortunately these races nearly always sell out, and so you often need to register for these events several weeks in advance in order to secure your entry.

With regards to upcoming events, there are still spaces available for quite a few of the Spartan Races scheduled for May and June 2013.

All of the events for 2013 are listed here on the Spartan Race website, but I have listed below the upcoming events in May and June in particular:
