If you’re a fan of the Spartan Races and plan on being in the NYC area this weekend, you’re in luck. Reebok Spartan Race, the world’s premier obstacle race company, announced today that they will host a Reebok Spartan Sprint at Citi Field in Queens, NY this Saturday. It will be the third annual competition at this world class stadium.

A true test of strength and stamina, this Spartan Sprint will feature 3+ miles and over 20 obstacles located all throughout the open-air park. What makes this race so unique is that participants will be running through the bleachers and outfield of a big league ballpark. With five races across NY/NJ this year, Citi Field is the only stadium race in one of Spartan Races best markets.

“Citi Field is a world-class venue for a number of reasons, and we have once again transformed it into a challenging terrain that will offer our athletes an exciting course against which to test themselves,” says Joe De Sena, Reebok Spartan Race CEO and Co-Founder. “We are excited that Citi Field is supporting our race series and the sport of Obstacle Racing as we rip our fans from the greater New York and New Jersey area off their couches to see what they’re capable of achieving.”
