Reebok Spartan Race Announces European Championships
BARCELONA TO HOST INAUGURAL REEBOK SPARTAN RACE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Sept. 27, 2014
Prize purse of over 13,500 Euros for top 3 male and female finishers
BARCELONA, Spain (September 9, 2014) – If participating in the toughest obstacle race in the world (according to Outside magazine) weren’t enough, there’s another motivation for Reebok Spartan Race Beast competitors on 27th September 2014. On that date Barcelona will host the European Championship for the Beast distance (over 20 km, 25+ obstacles). Each year the Reebok Spartan Race European Championship will rotate to different cities, with Spain being its inaugural host city.
Besides being recognized as winners, the top three Elite Heat finishers, both male and female, will split a prize purse worth 13,500 Euros – that’s first place of 3,750 Euros, second place wins 2,000 Euros, and third place finishers receive 1,000 Euros.
There are no age limitations when it comes to overcoming obstacles. Age group winners will also be recognized as Reebok Spartan Race European Champions. As the only obstacle race with world rankings, Reebok Spartan Race finishers will be able to compare their results with Spartans around the globe. Currently, Reebok Spartan Race is in nine European countries and seven non-European countries.
The Barcelona event, to be held 27th and 28th September, will also provide an opportunity for Spartans to achieve the Trifecta medal in one weekend, as Beast, Super and Sprint length races will be held on the spectacular Les Comes venue with its 518 hectares of land and more than 60 km of forest tracks in Suria, Spain. There will also be a Spartan Juniors race to provide kids ages four through 13 with their first taste of obstacle racing.
