Known as the ‘Gateway to the Highlands’, there has been a settlement on the River Tay since ancient times. The race will start in the very centre of the city and, for the first time ever in the UK Spartan Race runners will have the chance to run along crowd-lined streets, before heading out onto the hilly trails.
To begin the race, entrants will take in the beautiful and diverse architecture of the ‘Fair City’, before crossing the River Tay and heading out onto the steep Kinnoull Hil and Deuchny Woods to experience breath-taking views whilst the energy drains from the legs.
Throw in obstacles and we have an event that will test mental strength, endurance, grit and perseverance. With a Sprint (5km+), Super (13km+), Beast (20km+) and an epic Ultra (42km+) there really is something for all levels of athlete.
It’s always a pleasure to host events in areas both of such natural and man-made beauty. Racers will no doubt find themselves drawn in by the atmosphere of the landscape. The scenery will boost enjoyment and inspire everyone to get to that finish line even faster.
