Spartans are used to fighting to see who’s the toughest of them all. That’s a good thing because Big White doesn’t plan to go easy on these athletes while hosting the Spartan North American Championship this summer.
The Spartan Races involves the highest level of sport of obstacle course racing. At Big White, the race will be part of the Kelowna Spartan race weekend which will include a Spartan Ultra (50km/60 obstacles), Spartan Super (10K/25 obstacles), and a kids race(1-3k and obstacles). Ultimately, only 10 athletes will qualify.
These Top 10 athletes are used to a challenge; they’re also used to competing in the best locations. They couldn’t have picked a better location than right here at Big White Mountain, the highest summit in the Okanagan Highland, and one of the most beautiful places in Canada. This area offers the perfect terrain for the first time these athletes will compete outside of America, an honor bestowed upon Big White.
Some of the toughest competitors in the world will descend upon Big White on Saturday, August 27, 2022. They will find out pretty quickly that nobody puts Big White in a corner. No, they should expect challenging obstacles guaranteed to push them to their limits. They should also expect to have epic fun while fighting to see who really is the best of the best.
As part of the Kelowna Spartan Race Weekend, athletes can expect to fight for the chance to win the $62,000 in prize money while trying to tame The Spartan Beast. This 21- kilometer course features 30 challenging obstacles, Big White-style.
